Did you know the legislation on the use of fluorescent lamps is changing ?

The UK has recently followed the EU’s lead and made significant amounts of fluorescent lighting obsolete – with legislation set to remove further models of fluorescent lighting from the market over the next few months. Despite there being millions of fluorescent lights in operation across the UK, it is essentially a 1930s technology that is energy inefficient and can contain hazardous materials, such as mercury. 

Two pervasive types of fluorescent lamps to be phased out in 2023 are the T8 and T5s. These can be found in everything from schools and offices to older warehouses and even hospital operating theatres.

The enforced move away from old technology does however allow building owners to view this as an opportunity to think about the long-term return on their investment, and consider potential energy saving opportunities for their tenants, and a general improvement in the quality of lighting in their buildings when offered to the market.

And so, with less than 6 months before the ban comes into effect…now is probably the right time to consider replacing those old fluorescent light fittings with new LED fittings.
