Unknown brand Single lamp F40T12 enclosed striplight

Unknown brand Single lamp F40T12 enclosed striplight

Got at restore for $5. Came with a 40 watt GTE Sylvania CW lamp inside. No ballast so I installed a HPF 2 lamp wired for single bulb use, as a result the lamp instant starts.

The end plates are hinged and are held closed by a spring. To remove cover you pull on a plate to release cover.

These are, as far as I know, still available. I don’t know what brand they are, however. They are nice fixtures. The new ones take 2xF32T8.

Its good they still make them, If I find more I'll convert them to either T8 magnetic or 1 lamp F40T12. This can be stem mounted so I may go that route someday when I put it up.

I think a couple companies made this style of fixture. I found a [url=https://viscor.com/product.php?id=195]LED version too. I see them in washrooms and in stairwells of older buildings although usually in T8. I have a 2' two lamp one that has the same cover latch. Mine takes 2x F17T8s with a electronic rapid start ballast.

My place of work has them in stairwells as well as above the mirror in the public washrooms. The stairwells have them in 4' 2xF32T8 and the washrooms have them in 3' 2xF25T8. All are wall mounted. The diffusers are available separately and they occasionally replace the broken ones. The stairwell ones are not mounted very high (about 8 feet off the ground) and this being a high school, you can imagine the fate of the covers.

One hospital here has them in corridors. They have a metal strip on the front of the diffuser to reduce glare, the light coming only from the top and bottom parts of the diffusers. The metal strip is an option from the factory I believe seeing it is powder coated just like the fixture body. I'm not sure how it is mounted there, if it is only held in place by the spring loaded ends or if there is some fancier method.

A similar fixture exists in Europe. In some of the auditoriums in the Université Libre de Bruxelles, they had some mounted in rows. They were all single 36W T8 switch start. I believe the entire campus is now either T5 HF or LED.
