Get A Grip On Lighting: Avoiding Voiding UL

Greg Ehrich tells the story of a retrofit job he is working on where the new bulbs will void the UL certification for the fixture. Is there an easier way to convert the lighting without costing the owner thousands?

    UL is not voided in a bypass tube job. Most tubes are UL listed 1598 as a “retrofit kit”, not as a lamp, so the fixture is still UL.
