Louvred fixture row

Louvred fixture row

Click to view full size image

I found another fixture like this one at the same salvage yard. They are from the old campus bookstore at my university. Unfortunately, there was only one louvre assembly so I decided to cut the tandem unit to make a third section for what I had. It was quite the undertaking as the two plates in the centre are spot welded at 11 (eleven) places. Nevertheless, a light coat of paint and there you go. The centre fixture's ballast has been ordered from eBay but not yet received. It's amazing how a third fixture makes the row seem more complete. I'm glad I cut it in half as twelve feet is enough for where I installed it. Sixteen feet would have been too long.

Looks good, I'd like to find some louvered fixtures with metal sides like this and mount a couple in my house. What did you get for a replacement ballast?

The two sections that are lit in this picture are Universal black label full power from 1986 (I think, if I remember from the date stamp). The third one (in waiting) is a Valmont Bonus Line full power.

Nice! I think 3 makes a good row since 2 seems to look more like a tandem unit lol.

Thanks everyone for the comments. It's amazing how adding one fixture to a tandem makes a more finished look. I find louvres always look better in rows or a single separate units.

This one is wired into a plug in cord for the moment, however I will wire it up with a proper wall switch and everything.
