3 5ft T12 Fluorescent fixtures salvaged from a skip

3 5ft T12 Fluorescent fixtures salvaged from a skip

Found beside a skip, managed to salvage and clean it up. Tested it with a cheap bulb and seems to work fine.
Came from a school originally built in the 1970's - so possibly from around that time?

The Thorn EMI one (closest to the front of the picture) was a really tight fit and I barely got the bulb in to test it...

All 3 worked fine, despite being left outside unprotected for an unknown amount of time. (luckily its summer)

I don't know the age of these lights, but great save! Any magnetic T12 fitting these days is worth saving!

Yeh, I was pretty surprised they were T12, as T8 is much more common these days. Pleasantly surprised

Have a look on the capacitors in them there should be a MM/YY date code for instance 07/88 or 07/99 on the caps
