These are used to light one aisle only; the rest of the store has LED tubes in 8' Slimline strips. The front fixture here has two E26 LED lamps and the other two fixtures have Philips Alto F40T12/ADV50 lamps. The fluorescent ballasts are magnetic RS.

Woah strange!

I've also heard on YT vids of fluorescent battens having backup incandescent lamps along with the tubes

I will give LEDisease a taste of my shoe

Someone really should be tortured for this pathetic conversion. What a joke.

These aren't a conversion...the E26 lampholders came from the factory (or at least it looks that way). All three fixtures have them. Maybe they just ran out of fluorescent lamps for this fixture. Not a good excuse, especially when the proper lamps are $1 apiece at the ReStore that's within walking distance. Also, if I recall correctly, these fixtures are made by Hubbard Scientific. I think they're some kind of plant lights.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Definitely plant grow lights. I have seen similar designs too. They actually look great when lit with 2x60 incandescents and 2x40 "grow" fluorescents.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

If its a grow light, I assume the incandescents are there for heat?

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Bring back Fluorescent and SOX Streetlights. Keep magnetic ballasts.
