The Eterna IP65 T8 Weatherproof Fluorescent Batten is a durable luminaire that houses a pair of 5ft energy-efficient T8 fluorescent tubes (not supplied). This great-value fitting is constructed with a tough ABS base and an impact-resistant, shatterproof polycarbonate diffuser, which makes it difficult to break either accidentally or through vandalisation.
An IP65 Ingress Protection rating in this Eterna IP65 T8 Weatherproof Fluorescent Batten provides evidence of its dust-tightness and complete resistance to rain and jets of water. The latter means you can jet-clean this fitting, which extends its usefulness in wet areas such as shower rooms and washrooms. Other possible environments include corridors, offices, warehouses, underground car parks, tunnels, and most types of outdoor use.
For ease of installation, the IP65 T8 Weatherproof Fluorescent Batten includes a convenient gear-tray and retaining strap. A knockout and IP cable gland are supplied for connections and through-wiring. This fitting also allows multiple installation options, with included hanging hooks and clips for possible chain suspension (chain not included).
A choice of fittings is available in this Eterna range, including single and double tube luminaires of various lengths.
Thanks to its high-frequency electronic ballast the Eterna IP65 T8 Weatherproof Fluorescent Batten offers an excellent performance with none of the flickering or humming sometimes associated with mains-frequency 50 Hz luminaires with magnetic ballasts. This makes it especially suitable for constantly occupied work areas. Other advantages of a high-frequency ballast include instantaneous start-up and a significantly increased lamp lifespan (usually by around 50% or more against a magnetic ballast fitting).
The Eterna IP65 T8 Weatherproof Fluorescent Batten requires 2 x 58W T8 1500mm (5ft) fluorescent tubes (available separately) with G13 bi-pin caps.
