Customer Questions & Answers

how long is this unit? How many should I use in a 25 X 30 ft. metal building with 13 ft. tall ceiling ht?

Asked by: Donal
We used 8 of them in a 50 x 34 ft metal RV garage and it gives plenty of good light.

Can I use two 28W or a pair of 25W T8 bulbs in this fixture?

Maximum wattage for this fixture is listed as 64W (2x32W). Does that mean I can alternatively use even more efficient, lower wattage bulbs as well? The description says to use a 3000K bulb. Is there any reason why I couldn't or shouldn't use 4100K bulbs instead?
Asked by: MplsMan
Yes, you can use 25 or 28W T8 bulbs. You can also use 4100K bulbs.

Will these lights work in a building that is not heated?

My current lighting will not always start when temperature drops and will also kick off periodically in both hot & cold conditions
Asked by: Tiny
The ballast of the CESL403 will have a start temperature rating on its label. If the temperature approaches or goes below that temperature rating the the customer may have starting problems.

Steel Plate 2-Lamp Hanging Fluorescent Silver ShopLight is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased this to replace a similar one that stopped working after 15 years. The new one is so... Purchased this to replace a similar one that stopped working after 15 years. The new one is so ridiculous it is difficult to describe how poorly made this light is. The bulbs are very, very difficult to put in and touch each other and the cord is between them making turning it on and off rubbing on the bulbs. The poor quality is laughable. Returning it immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good light output Great light for the money. Installed 4 to light up 2 bays of a 3 car garage. Reflects nicely off of the diamond plate. Looks tough but is actually only marginally stronger than aluminum foil. That is fine sincce it's only hanging from the ceiling. I'll be buying a few more to light up the rest of the garage. Easy to install. Just attach the pull chains and screw in some ceiling hooks. (Ceiling hooks and fluorescent tubes not included). Plug it in and pull the chain. Cool little stamped hammers come with the chains as a grab for the chain. Immediate shipping, had them in two days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Purchased a more expensive shop light and had to take it back, very poor quality. Purchased this one, looks great in the garage and love the pull string with the little hammer, no need to plug in every time i wanted the light on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Typical Home Depot lighting junk. Having had zero, long-term luck with any Home Depot lighting fixture, I bought this with hesitation. The store is local. Easy install and lights beautifully while it works. Less than 1 year later, buzzzzzz, and out. The ballast is gone. Not worth replacing. Every light that I have purchased from Home Depot, expensive or cheap, has failed in short order. This one is the last. You can only expect the quality level to match the commitment that the vendor has to the customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lights! I ordered 4 of these lights on line and they came in a reasonable amount of time. I hung them plugged them in and they were slow to come on the first time though now come on as soon as the switch is turned on. We have had some -10 to -20 deg. weather in Iowa in the last few weeks and these lights perform awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great Option These shop light fixtures are a great option for workshop instead of standard white plastic lights. My husband loves how they look in his workshop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Purchase The light fixture was easy to assemble, and hang. Once the fluorescent bulbs were inserted, there was instant light for my shop.
