Transformation Tubes - Coloured Filters (Create The Light Effect)

Transformation Tubes have since 1990 been producing and supplying filter sleeves and gels to many differing organisations. We pride ourselves on the quality of our product and the service provided to our customers. Our coloured filters (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 lighting scheme.

Where can the filter sleeves and gel be used?
Almost anywhere, Colorap light filters are used in diverse environments such as TV Production/Film, Theatre, Retail, Hospitality/Catering, Museums, Art Galleries, General Industry, Interior Design and home craft projects.

The filters can be used for a variety of reasons:
- Colour effects and enhancements
- Correction for colour balance
- Protection reduces harmful ultra violet emissions by up to 95%.

Our ultra violet range are also available in all colour variations, please contact us for details as they are to special order only.

What colours and sizes are available?
Over a 100 colour variations are available with many held in stock, please call us to discuss your requirements.

All sizes are approximate.
Bespoke roll lengths and sheets sizes are available on request. All Transformation Tube’s filters are constructed with high colour accuracy using fade resistant gel coated film manufactured to BS 3944 and IS0 9002 with a fire resistant to BS 3944:1991 pt 1.

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.

Corrective Light Filters

Many modern lighting solutions cause headaches and eyestrain due to the bright light in schools, offices etc. Although they may save costs, they comes at the expense of comfort.

Our range of corrective filter sleeves are the answer. They use ultra violet transmission to reduce glare and are very easy to install. UV emission is reduced by 99% without changing the appearance of the emitted light.

Corrective filter lights are available in 3 different grades.

Special Projects

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.

Hello to the team at Transformation Tubes! I would love to write feedback about your service as I had the pleasure of purchasing 8 large filter sheets from you recently. First of all, your team and especially Kim Burns was very helpful and knowledgeable to give us specifications of the filter sheets which helped us make our decision on which wavelength or colour to purchase. You were also extremely kind enough to process our order even though we couldn’t provide you with a purchase order or proof of payment on the same day due to some difficulties we had in our finance system. Although the package was not delivered on time by the royal mail, you were very quick and thoughtful to immediately provide us with replacement sheets in time for the student to carry out his experiments as planned. We are extremely grateful for the amazing service we have gotten from you especially during these difficult times. We want to thank you profusely for the swift replacements you provided.

Multitechnic Limited, Col

Thanks for the sample, got it tested this afternoon. Looks very much like two layers of each filter is going to do the job very nicely, certainly worth a proper trial. A 7.6m roll the same size as the previous filter will be ideal if it comes in that size, if so please send an invoice by return & we will get the payment over to you. Many thanks, excellent service.
