Shat-R-Shield, the Salisbury, N.C.-based manufacturer of plastic-coated safety lamps, has entered a supply agreement with Philips Lighting Co., Somerset, N.J. Shat-R-Shield will apply its shatter-resistant coating to Philips' T5, T5 HO, T8, T12 and T12 HO fluorescent lamps along with selected incandescent and high-intensity discharge lamps, all of which will be distributed by Philips under the TuffGuard brand. TuffGuard lamps will be available to distributors beginning February 2007.

“Philips Lighting has seen the need to complement their product offering with coated lamps for several years,” said Shat-R-Shield President Karen Ponce. “This will give distributors more choices for protective lighting while strengthening a partnership that has been growing between our two companies for over a decade.”
