I see the louvre assembly is 8 feet. That is quite long and awkward to handle. They are, however, nice fixtures. Any plans for them ?

These must have at one point been 8 foot slimline. Very nice fixtures you have, should be a breeze to put T12 in there if thats your style. I just bought an 8 foot louver myself the other day, it is indeed hard to manage at 8 feet and it is still slimline so the lamps are really long

Those are great!

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Usually, 8foot slimline louvres have two 4foot louvre assemblies per lamp length. This one would be difficult to handle, though.

Don't 8 footers have the most problems
I like the 8 footers, it's just for me they seem to have the most problems like:
Striations
Swirling
Mix of both of the above
Mercury Migration
Total mercury starvation (on first strike)
Contamination
Broken or bent filament
Or did I just state every common problem in fluorescent lighting?

Most of those issues you listed are more likely with modern fluorescent lighting. The slimlines in my louver are old daylight tubes and started up perfectly

I hope to put them up someday, probably hang them 12-16" from a ceiling. Tough to find stems and a decent cover for the stem and hangar. Probably should look at ceiling fan mounts and covers.

Yes the extended length makes them a bit wiggly

Hi Lightingguy 1994, i'm also a huge fan of them, i was thinking of putting 2 of them above my bench in the garage, my ceiling is 11 ft in there, i'd like to hang them from 3 foot stems.
