The Philips MASTER Actinic BL TL-D(-K) family is an ideal choice for insect traps. These lamps have the perfect spectrum for attracting insects. Also, they have virtually no UV-B output, and so are perfectly safe. Furthermore, they have the special "MASTER" coating to improve the efficiency, initial UV-A output and maintenance of the lamp. What's more, with the lowest mercury content in the industry and being 100% lead-free, combined with their high efficiency, these lamps represent the best choice for the environment. Optionally, for extra safety you can apply a special "Secura" sleeve that keeps all glass and components together in the case of accidental breakage. This eliminates the risk of glass splinters showering down on food preparation areas, for example. And that is why it meets the strict HACCP requirements.

A lamp breaking is extremely unlikely to have any impact on your health. If a lamp breaks, ventilate the room for 30 minutes and remove the parts, preferably with gloves. Put them in a sealed plastic bag and take it to your local waste facilities for recycling. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
