Looking for early 1960's fluorescents fixtures to rent or buy. « on: August 31, 2017, 06:45:12 PM » Author: First Man
I am working on a film in Atlanta, GA set in the 1960's.  I am in need of about 12 matching 4'- T12 fixtures with fin, ice cube style or other interesting styled diffusers and end caps. Not fancy but more institutional styled.  Would either rent or purchase.  Please help.  Thank you.

I'd love to help, but sadly, I only have one fixture that fits the description.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

First man, stay here for a while - There definitely are some Fluorescent collections here that might be what you are looking for, but you'll have to wait till more members see your question

Have look also at T8 lanterns that match your description. As long as a T12 lamp fits in there, they can be converted to T12 simply by replacing the ballast



I would be able to help you if you happened to be on the other side of the world and look for 80s/90s era Fluorescents

There really aren't any factory-T8 fixtures that have the authentic old-school look OP is going for.

I just now saw this post.  If you are still looking, I may have some fixtures like you are seeking. I do not want to sell them, but could "rent" or "barter" for their use.  Most of mine are 8 foot but I have a couple 4x40 four foot ones too.
