GamTubes™ are colored filter sleeves that slip over fluorescents to correct or change their color. They're an excellent and economical choice to simulate neon, reduce glare or to color correct for motion picture and television production. GamTubes™ are available for every fluorescent lamp from T-2 to T-12. They're also available for biaxial & compact fluorescents lamps, requiring only trimming of length, which is easily done with scissors.

*Color life expectancy for GamTube™ (single layer of color) on a fluorescent tube is one year for T-8 thru T-12. For T-5 and T-5 HO color life expectancy is 50% less particularly problematic are the T-5 HO lamps. SuperTubes™ are recommended for the T-5 lamps. Life expectancy is based on ten hours per day operation, seven days a week (an average on time of 70 hours per week). If lights are used on a higher average per week, life expectancy will be proportionally reduced.

Color life expectancy does vary because of the different dies used to make each color. Color life is impacted by installation circumstances and optical design of the fixture and reflector. For example if the fixture design limits the flow of cooling air or a spectral reflector focuses the light back into the lamp, color life will be reduced. GamTubes™ mounted in fixtures exposed to sunlight are also subject to quicker fading due to UV rays from sunlight even when the light is not on. For better results we recommend the Super/SuperTube

Supertube with hand


SuperTube™ is a GamTube™ with a first layer (closest to the lamp) of UV filter and a second layer of GamColor®. The UV filter helps to extend the color life expectancy by filtering out the high UV content of the fluorescent lamp. SuperTube™ effectively doubles the life expectancy of a standard GamTube™ in the same situation. In an installation where we would expect one year of color life, the SuperTube™ would double it to two years. SuperTube™ is recommended to minimize maintenance frequency.

Super/Supertube™ is a first layer of UV (closest to the lamp) a second layer of color and a third layer of UV filter. The first layer of UV is to protect the color from the high UV content of the fluorescent lamp. The outside layer of UV filter protects the color from the UV of the sunlight. Super/Supertube™ is recommended for outdoor fixtures exposed to sunlight. The Super/Supertube™ should be mounted within the enclosed fixture to protect it from the weather.
