Fresh New Look

D-D introduces the NEW brand name PRO-POWER T5 for its proven range of T5 lighting. 

D-D is now introducing a new brand name and smart new image for its well established and trusted line of Aquablue+, Actinic+, Lagoon Blue, AquaPink, Actinic Pure, Midday and Aquaflora T5 tubes.

2014 saw the end of a nine year agreement for D-D to supply Giesemann Lichttechnik with its popular range of T5 tubes, which had been sold together around the world under the PowerChrome name.

Image above shows the current packaging and the new PRO-POWER T5 packaging.

D-D’s new PRO-POWER T5 packaging will be gradually introduced into the market as existing tube stocks are used up and will continue the legacy for D-D for supplying the best, high quality German T5 tubes in the hobby.

The new PRO-POWER T5 sleeves are colour coded for easy recognition of the spectrum and continue to offer the latest developments in T5 technology.
