and gels to many differing organisations. We pride ourselves on the quality of
our product and the service provided to our customers. Our filter sleeves
(Colorap) are designed as a cost effect method of breathing new life into
fluorescent lighting, both existing and new installations will benefit from this
cost effective way of bringing colour to what would have otherwise been a basic

How do I fit a Colorap light filter?
Unlike other wrap-around light filters, Transformation Tubes Colorap filter
sleeves are much easier to fit because they are provided as a tube that simply
slides over your fluorescent tube, as shown in the photos below.
If your fluorescent tube blows, simply remove the tube from its fitting, slide
off the Colorap sleeve, slide the sleeve over the new tube and refit, your
colour scheme remains intact.
If you are currently working on a lighting project and are looking to infuse it
with colour and are unsure as to whether our filters and gels are suitable,
please give us a call. As a family run business we can offer greater flexibility
than most and can often modify our product to suit your specific requirements.
