The tables below list initial luminous outputs, in lumens per foot, for a selection of luminous tube or "neon" products. These values are useful for calculating luminous outputs of decorative, non-sign luminous tube lighting, for determination of compliance with outdoor lighting regulations that address the total amount of light (measured in lumens) used in development projects.

These figures are values provided by the manufacturers. Actual lumen outputs may vary due to various factors including processing methods and tube age. Many manufacturers carry a greater variety of colors, tube diameters, and current ratings than listed here: contact the manufacturer for detailed information.
