Hard to find fault with these
4 Aug 2015
By
, Lichfield
" Fitted four of these in a double garage, giving a good white light without shadows. Easy to fit with clips in place to hang the gear tray whilst connections are made. Nice robust covers, I was a little worried about the hinged plastic cover clips which have first to be snapped in to place before fitting the cover but that said I did not manage to break one of the 32 clips over the four fittings I installed. All remains 100% good after one years use. Can recommend. "

biright, quiet, economical

" " 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 and they run almost silently - no hum.

robust - easy to fit
2 Nov 2012
By
, solihull
" the kit has all the extras, not expected but welcome. The inner case has straps for hanging the frame during the wiring connection - makes life easy when working overhead. The frame has a wiring access gland for watertight fit. Remember to fit the external clips before inserting the inner frame because it can be reallly awkward to get at parts of the frame when all is assembled. The instructions if needed are inside the frame, below the light plate. The finished item looks good and gives good light fron a single tube - a very good buy for an attic space that has low temp in winter. Too soon to comment on reliablity but expected to be a long term fix to attic light problems - no more task lighting dragging across the boards. "

Great Strip Light

" Nice enclosed fluorescent light. Fitted in attic with low roof. Easy to fit, but plastic clips fall off sometimes when you try to fit & use them. Actually wanted the cheaper type of lamp but pleased with this as it lights up quickly and no flicker.
can't comment on reliability as only fitted it at the weekend! "

poor reliability
5 Jun 2015
By
, Shropshire
" installed these light fittings in a cellar September 2014, both stopped working (BOTH !) April 2015.
12 month manufacturer guarantee so going back to Screw-fix for replacements so watch this space for an update. I seem to think that I have installed further Lap fittings before and had problems so I will be monitoring all performance of LAP fittings in future. Not a fan of LAP products in all departments.

Avoid - see other LAP reviews

" Just bought this as well as the other 2 x 36w LAP weatherproof fitting.
This and the other both both delivered faulty - tube barely lights.
Avoid and buy something else that will save you the trouble of fitting, finding it faulty, removing and returning. "
