By Anthony Capkun
April 19, 2013 – At Lightfair 2013 next week, Shat-R-Shield says it will unveil new UV-blocking CFLs available in 2700K 4W, 14W, 19W and 23W mini-twist varieties. The company says UV light causes 40% of fading in furniture, fabrics and art, and the new CLFs block over 96% of UV under 395nm with lumen loss less than 4%. “Our UV-blocking CFLs will be the perfect lamp for people with Lupus or other photosensitivity issues,” said Shat-R-Shield product development manager, Don Cattoni. “They are also ideal for areas such as museums with priceless paintings, and retail locations that need their fabrics to appear as vibrant as possible.” The company adds that its lamp coating will contain virtually all mercury, glass and phosphors should a lamp be accidentally dropped or broken.
