Shatter-Resistant GE covRguard® Product Line Expands, Now Features Every Type of Fluorescent Lighting
New products in the expanded GE covRguard line include:
- VHO 1500m/T5HE/HO: High-light-output lamp used in cold temperature applications, such as freezers, coolers, outdoor perimeter lighting and high-bay food warehouses.
- UVA Transmitting: UV lamp used in insect traps when other insect control devices are inadequate or forbidden due to their proximity to open food products or food prep areas.
- UVC Transmitting: UV blacklights and germicidal lamps used to reduce microorganism counts (killing bacteria and viruses) in food processing, scientific and medical applications.

"The GE covRguard line offers everything our customers want — an FDA-compliant, shatter-resistant product with outstanding light quality and superior energy efficiency," says Nick Iacobucci, product marketing manager for GE Appliances & Lighting.
GE covRguard lamps offer maximum protection with minimum light loss — the lowest loss of initial light of any shielded product currently on the market. This makes it an ideal product for applications in grocery stores and food-processing operations; hospitals and health-care facilities; restaurants and food-service operations; and in the semiconductor industry. In each case, GE covRguard lamps will make the facility brighter and better protected.
The extensive GE covRguard line features a variety of quality lighting products, including T8 with Starcoat™ for the best color and most light over life, Ecolux® reduced mercury lamps for disposal compliance, and the XL® series for super long life. GE also provides a complete line of incandescent GE covRguard products, and all lines meet FDA, OSHA and USDA standards.
