Vintage industrial factory fluorescent strip lights lamps tubes proof shade old steel theatre

 All lights will be wired and working.

Description:

This listing is for ONE light only.

These are amazing strip lights from an old spraying factory just outside of London. These are incredibly heavy and very rare items that I have yet to come across before.

They have a thick steel bar that supports the glass body and 2 heavy-duty metal loop hooks to enable you to hang the unit from a celling or wall. The larger base is the control unit where the wiring is located. This has several bolts, which allows you to open up the base, the same can be done at the top and you can remove the metal cap to replace the florescent tubes. It takes the standard florescent tubes that all factory and shops use.

This particular one is a double, so that’s two lights in one unit.

I’m fortunate to have more then one matching if you require matching lights. However this is the only double one that I have

These originally played a very important safety role in the spray factory. The fluorescent tube is housed in incredibly thick 10mm glass tubes. All the metal is heavy-duty steel. The reason for the glass is so that when they were turned on, the small electric spark that occurs in all electric items is contained within the light, and not exposed to the environment. The fumes and fine dust partials that spraying creates makes the factory a volatile and potentially explosive environment which means that you have to remove all chances of sparks happening. The original electric cables were also fire proof allowing them to stay working in the event of a fire.

 

Possible uses and ideas:

These lights are amazing items; pictures just don’t do them justice. These are quality precision-made heavy-duty objects that were built to last forever. No short cuts were taken when these were made, like most items made in England at the time. These lights would look great hanging from a bar on two wires or attached upright drilled against the wall. You could event use more then one to spell out the initials of your company for a waiting room. They could also be hung upside down so that the steel bar could be used a clothes hanging rail

They are star items and would make great talking pieces.

These are vintage used lights, these are not immaculate new items, and as a result some have warring of paint or small paint drops. You are more then welcome to come and hand pick the lights you want.

As with anything electrical have them tested and you must get a professional to install, please don’t tamper with anything electronic if you’re not a professional. I accept no responsibility once these leave me.
