T5 Fluorescent Emergency Light

The T5 fluorescent tube is a popular high output lighting solution for many types of commercial applications. The FTEL can be equipped with a battery backup to qualify as a UL Listed emergency light.

The rugged design of this fluorescent light makes it popular for commercial and industrial applications. The snap together design makes installation and maintenance for this emergency light simple. Polycarbonate construction and a clear cover shields the emergency light from vandalism and corrosion.
