Default 8ft LED Tubes

I work for a manufacturer and we make a lot of 8ft T8 tubes for our customers. Many customers ask for different lengths ranging from between 92" and 95".

Trying to understand why there are so many different lengths needed for 8ft LED T8s. Google searches have failed me.

I have customers stating that they've never seen the length discrepancies with fluorescents, but only with LEDs.

Can anyone share some good knowledge? Thanks in advance!

I put some eight footers in that were a touch short and four footers that were long.

I would figure there is a specific regulation on the minimum-maximum of light bulbs/tubes as well as engineering standards set by some agency.

The sockets are the difference.
