Retrolite's NEW PoultryFlector:
Retrolite Corporation of America proudly announces the availability of the PoultryFlector. This compact fluorescent lamp reflector was designed to capture and redistribute the maximum light intensities to the floor area. The reflector was designed around the technical design/merits of the Overdrive Lighting 23 and 36 watt T3, 2700K integral spiral CFL. Independent lighting tests by Lighting Sciences - Scotsdale, Arizona, shows that the PoultryFlector using the Overdrive 23 or 36 watt CFL's can amplify, on average, the lumen levels 2.8 times when using the 23 watt lamp and 2.6 times when using the 36 watt CFL. Lumen readings taken directly under the 23 watt CFL mounted at 10’ show light levels X 5 of the bare lamp and levels of X 4 to X 1.5 over a range of 70 degrees. Similar data was witnessed using the 36 watt Overdrive CFL. More...

Other Dimmable Lamps
Other Dimmable Lamps available are the Overdrive Lighting 8 watt CCFL and 15 watt CCFL (Covered models). While these lamps need to have other wattage Non Dimmable Spiral lamps to be used in conjunction to get the proper footcandle levels, we offer UNBEATABLE pricing.
Other NEW Lighting information:
Several states around the country are now requiring that keyless sockets no longer be used in Agricultural Barns. Engineered Products Company (EPCO) makes a light box and globe which is UL approved for Damp locations (which is what most states are requiring). This fixture can seen on EPCO's website as their P/N 15050 and can be used with an existing junction box, so there is no rewiring that is needed to install these new fixtures and get your farms up to code.
