LED UltimaT8 Tubes with Emergency Back-Up

Oct 19, 2022

Why You Should Consider the LED UltimaT8 Tube Light with Battery Backup from TCP

When you manage a healthcare facility, senior living center, school campus, or office building, the safety of the individuals who live, learn, or work there is in your hands. Ensuring the day-to-day well-being of others is a big responsibility, especially when you can’t control external factors that can throw a huge wrench into your typical routine.   

Events such as severe weather and rolling blackouts can cause unexpected and prolonged power outages. Unfortunately these situations are becoming increasingly common. And when they happen in commercial settings that rely on good lighting, it maximizes safety concerns and stress levels for everyone. 

This is why it’s more important than ever to invest in LED lighting that goes above and beyond everyday reliability and energy efficiency, especially in times of emergency when you need light the most. For facilities that do not have backup generators, which means they’re left in the dark during a power outage, the experts at TCP have created a brilliant solution. 

Keep reading to learn more about TCP’s most innovative LED tube lighting to date – the LED UltimaT8 tube with Emergency Back-up. When the power goes out, these lights continue to stay on for 90 extra minutes due to their self-contained emergency driver. 

With an hour and a half of extra light, you can see clearly as you check the operational safety and security of your entire facility.  

Which Industries Should Use the LED UltimaT8 Tube Light?

All commercial applications could benefit from these game-changing lights. But there are certain industries where we recommend these emergency back-up tube lights more than anything else. And the reason for this is safety. Let’s take a closer look at a few industries where safety is everything. 

Hospitals & Healthcare 

Power outages that strike hospitals, nursing homes, and healthcare facilities can be life-threatening in certain cases. Without a backup generator, staff members often scramble around in the dark attending to patients’ needs, and ensuring that vital health monitoring systems still function. With 90 minutes of additional light, healthcare workers can see properly while attending to important issues, and hopefully avoid critical mishaps due to lack of light.     

Manufacturing Industries 

Workers in certain production plants and manufacturing facilities often use heavy equipment, or work with dangerous materials. When a blackout occurs in the facility, safety concerns skyrocket. Injuries could happen if forklift workers can’t see where they’re going, or if chemical handlers can’t see what they’re holding. 90 minutes of extra light reduces risk.   

Schools & Office Buildings 

Students and employees could potentially get hurt, too, when the building environment suddenly goes dark during a power outage. Plus, this risk greatly increases in areas without windows. If you want to reduce costly liability claims, invest in 90 minutes of extra light. 

What makes TCP’s new UltimaT8 tubes with emergency back-up better than competitors’ tube lights? Here are two big benefits:      

Emergency Back-Up Battery

TCP’s UltimaT8 tubes don’t rely on remote batteries or ballasts for back-up lighting. Each 4-ft LED lamp features a self-contained emergency driver. When the electricity goes out, and you’re suddenly plunged into emergency mode, you can breathe a little easier knowing that you have a 90-minute light supply to keep you going.  

Self Testing

Another great feature is the ability to test your emergency lighting at any time with just the push of a button. Each lamp features a test button with indicator light, so you can instantly see that your lights will operate properly when needed most. This capability is another layer of safety in addition to monthly and yearly self-testing. It maintains peace of mind, and allows users to check functionality before a big storm, heatwave, or similar event.

Additional Benefits

These UltimaT8 tubes are a must-have for emergency situations, but they’re perfect for everyday use, too! They provide high quality, energy efficient, non-flickering light with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. That’s a long time!
