12 Tube Commercial T5 Fluorescent System

New to PARsource is the 12 Tube Commercial T5 Fluorescent lighting system. This system is a new addition to our commercial line of T5s. The 12 tube system is energy efficient, highly reflective, and covers a larger area than our other T5 units. The T5 system delivers performance, flexibility, and high lumen output in any growing environment. This system allows you to choose multiple hanging configurations to meet your application requirements. Our T5 system generates more than double the light energy compared to a typical T12 fluorescent system. Daylight spectrum, 6400K, high-output T5 tubes are included with this system.


  • Dimensions: 3"H x 39"W x 47"L
  • Multiple on/off switches on 6,8, and 12 tub fixtures allow you to control the light output or coverage as needed
  • Powder-coated steel housing
  • High efficiency specular aluminum for maximum reflectivity
  • Hangs 3 ways - overhead, vertical, or horizontal

Lamp operation position, also known as lamp orientation or burning position, is the specific physical orientation in which lamps are designed to operate. It is critical that each lamp is positioned correctly to ensure proper performance. The operation of lamps in positions other than those specified can result in severe reductions in lamp performance, inlcuding lamp life, light output, and color. Incorrect operating positions can also create the possibility of an early failure.

Some of the common positions are shown below:

Universal Horizontal Base Up (BU) Base Down (BD)
