A lot of light for the money
15 Nov 2013
By DownshireM
, Bracknell
" I was looking for a fluorescent light to replace an old one in my greenhouse, so it had to be reasonably waterproof.
This one fitted the bill exactly. It was weatherproof and came complete with tube and with a diffuser (which the old light did not have.)
It was very easy to install. And it looks good too.
I consider it very good value for money.
I can't comment on its reliability - ask me in ten years!

Good light for outdoor area
27 Dec 2013

" Good light output and easy one man installation
Only complaint is the starter holder is rather flimsy and did take a little fiddling to get it to start up,however it has been OK since then.Time will tell.

Reasonable quality fitting
17 Oct 2013
By Phil57

" I needed a 4 of these Lights for a Timber workshop I was wiring , The build quality is quite good , though I must add the starter Housing is quite flimsy with Contacts that dont seem to hold the Starter in tightly , the starter sits behind the Tube so it was prone to coming loose , resulting in the Light not working - the Socket for the Starter needs upgrading imo "

Fitting nightmare
6 Nov 2014
By mrnt
, derbyshire
" Sorry folks even though it was a reasonable price, whoever designed it has never fitted a batten in their life! Well packaged but was worried I was going to damage it getting it apart to install. Why on earth have all the gear train on the bit you have to offer to the case then you have to use quite a lot of force to engage in plastic lugs. Just glad it was a 5 ft and not an 8ft :) "

Bad purchase
30 Oct 2013
By stustock
, Ebbw vale
" I picked up the light fitting from the Merthyr branch it had brown insulation tape around the box but I didn't have time to check it out I fitted the product last week there was no tube in the box so I went and bought one from the local wholesaler the fitting didn't work I haven't had time to fault find or return the fitting am going back to customer on Monday. But can't say I'm that impressed as it has meant extra work and time for me. "
