The two open starter holes suggest that this fixture might have originally been preheat. Unfortunately preheat ballasts are very hard to find in Canada now. Kinda interesting design too. Most louvered fixtures use the louver assembly as the ballast cover instead of a inner one.

Yeah i was surprised myself to find an inner cover, makes me wonder if this fixture was offered with a full cover that wasn't louvered. Probably not but I wouldn't be surprised. I will be making them regular rapid start anyways

Mine has no cover, the V channel acts as the cover. This one might have been offered with a large grid, one with large cells and no V channel. Then a channel cover would have been required. Just a thought.

The internal cover protects the wires from the UV. This thing is built to last !

I've seen a lot of RS fixtures made during the 'transition' era where they still had holes for starters. Either the factories were still using stock from when they were just preheat and added rapid-start ballasts or it was an option for both types, I'm thinking.

This must mean the fixture is pretty old, just not sure the amount of years by 10s
