Lap T8 batten
9 Nov 2015
By
, South Coast
" Appear to be well made and once you work out how to assemble them they go together fine.
Bought four of them for the garage and they perform fine. High frequency so no strobing, very quiet in use.
Make sure to fit the cover clips before hanging as they are a bit fiddly.

" The instructions leave a little to be desired but anyone who is used to these won't have a problem. Some nice features with the safety hangers for assembly/disassembly at height. I would recommend installing the cover clips before fitting the body to the ceiling as they can be a bit fiddly if working on a ladder.
Good simple unit and I will be using them more often. "

Good Weatherproof Striplight
23 Mar 2015
By
, Newmarket
" I bought this light assembly to provide light under my carport.
The light was well packaged and although the enclosed instructions were a little vague it was easy to assemble and install.
I am impressed with the light output and am very pleased with the product.
Only four stars for reliability as its a very recent purchase. However it went together without a hitch and I have no reason to believe it would be unreliable.

" Excellent bit of kit! Well made, easily installed and exceptionally well worth the money. Have used a number of these HF fluorescent tube battens in a workshop to prevent strobing, and thus improve safety in use, on rotating machine tools. Highly recommended. "

Easy fit batten light
5 Dec 2014
By
, Derbyshire
" Purchased for carport lighting. The light came well packed / protected in its box and although very light in weight the quality of the unit and its fittings appeared to be very good.
Very easy to install and the clever plastic 'hanging' straps on the internal metal gear tray enabled the tray to be suspended freeing up both hands to connect the wiring.
The plastic clips securing the diffuser were a bit loose and fiddly to fit but once in place and fastened the diffuser was clamped tight to the casing.
Once installed the tube light (58w) lit instantly and had no flicker. The clear diffuser gave a good light spread.
Not anticipating any reliabiltiy problems.
Probably one of the easiest light units to fit.
Overall an excellent product.

Good all round fluorescent
6 Aug 2014

" Bright, efficient, smart and tough.
Great high frequency electronic fluorescent.
When you can get these at this price why bother buying switch start ones. They look neat as well (provided you don't mind being able to see the tube). I use them even where the IP rating is not required - especially where there is a risk of them getting hit by something as the diffuser is much tougher than the conventional ones. Also they start instantly almost every time.

Why pay more?
17 Oct 2012
By
, Mid Wales
" I looked at these compared to the Thorn versions. These are excellent lamps, easy to install (it says you need 2 people, but I did it on my own) and good looking.
Just put 2 in my workshop in addition to similar 10 year old lamps and the instant start is impressive. Can't comment yet on reliability.
Come with a couple of wire hooks which I assume are for chain hanging.
About to order some more! "

" The instructions are a little vague since they assume the unit is already assembled and there is no mention of what I presume are hanging clips...but apart from the fiddly diffuser clips it appears to be quite a solid unit.
Worked first time and up within 30 mins.
Will buy some more for the Loft.

Simple to fit and easy to handle.
