With a 40W power consumption, the 18.m-long L40 tube is described by its manufacturer as a heavy duty fixture.

It has the same dimensions of standardised T8 tubes meaning it can be retrofitted into existing structures.

The fully enclosed L-Series has low power consumption, cool running temperature and maintenance-free lifetime of at least 50,000 hours.

They are dust-proof and can withstand submerging in water to a depth of 1m. They are available with all of Valoya's proven wide light spectra.

Current users include London's Growing Underground where Valoya's L-Series lights are used to cultivate a range of leafy greens and herbs.
