Time is running out for the fluorescent lamp in the UK

Posted on Wednesday, February 8, 2023

The UK Government has announced its schedule for the phasing-out of fluorescent lamps containing mercury. This follows a similar plan issued by the EU and arises from changes to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (RoHS).

In the UK, the phased changes will occur between 1st September 2023 and 1st February 2024. After these dates, all T5, T8 and compact fluorescent lamps will be banned from sale, however existing stocks from suppliers of these lamps will still be available until they are exhausted.

With less than twelve months to go, now is the time to plan your lighting future. Switching to Thorlux SmartScan luminaires with the award-winning SmartScan wireless lighting management system can deliver energy savings exceeding 70% compared with conventional technology.

With flexible funding support via Mitsubishi HC Capital UK PLC that ranges from simple payment plans to more innovative installation and maintenance solutions, plus a five-year product warranty, now is the time to switch to Thorlux’s high-performance, energy-efficient LED luminaires.
