Protect-A-Lamp sleeves, or PALs, guard against the inherent dangers of fluorescent lamp breakage by retaining the shattered glass and phosphors. They are made of clear extruded polycarbonate, featuring high tensile strength over a wide temperature range and high impact strength even at low temperatures. PAL sleeves also protect lamps against dirt, dust, bugs and flying insects.
Any area in which contamination may occur due to lamp breakage including food processing plants, schools, hospitals, department stores, libraries, museums and art galleries.
Heat resistant polycarbonate plastic
PALs safely protect T8 lamps when they are operated by electromagnetic ballasts, or are used in conjunction with electronic high efficiency ballasts that are designed to prevent overheating at the end of lamp life. A.L.P. does not recommend using protective sleeves (PALs) on T8 lamps under any other conditions.
