I checked home depot's website and they do have it in 3 ft length. Here's the item name: "30-Watt 3 ft. Linear T12 ALTO Fluorescent Tube Light Bulb Cool White (4100K)" and here's the address: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-30-Watt-3-ft-Linear-T12-ALTO-Fluorescent-Tube-Light-Bulb-Cool-White-4100K-543462/308436305

Can I buy a separate cover for it?

Asked by Sara February 14, 2021
2
Answers

If you are asking about a diffusor to go over the bulbs, this fixture is a strip and does not have a diffusor. If you are talking about another metal cover to go over the ballast (beneath the lamps), the answer is no. It would cost you as much as a new fixture would cost because the fixtures are made as one component and no extra parts are made except for the lamp holders (as after market pieces).

Your typical fluorescent light. More expensive to replace ballast than buy whole new strip. Found $15 3' LED light in same isle that generates 20-30% more light than this, is a really nice natural bright daylight, plus has 50,000 hrs of life.... let alone not putting mercury into our air and landfills like these fluorescent bulbs do when they burn out...

I wanted a shop light I could plug in for my plants. After getting help from associate, he showed me this one, which I bought. Turns out, it has no plug in. I guess it's supposed to be wired directly into the ceiling. Since I live 50 miles away and lost the receipt I'll toss it into the trash and buy a new one where I've bought them in the past.

Easy to install. I like the new folding ends they do save some time, but it doesn't cut the time in half. I removed two fixtures from my 11 ft. workshop ceiling and replaced with these two Metalux fixtures in just about an hour and a half.

We needed much more light in our little old garage. The 2 light 8 ft fluorescent strip light is working out well. It is light weight and very easy to install. The holes did not line up with where we needed to attach it but my husband was able to drill two in it in order to hang it securely. We chose Daytime bulbs to maximize the light in the dark garage. We are really thrilled to be able to see everything now.

It gets a 5 if you have electrician knowledge but a 1 if you know nothing about electrical wiring. This fixture was hard to rate since it is clearly slanted towards the electrician/contractor rather than a typical do it yourselfer. This is a bare bones fixture. It only contains the housing itself, the ballast, and the holders for the fluorescent tubes. The lighting fixture connectors on each end rotate to make bulb installation easy which is a VERY VERY BIG plus. Other fixtures require you to gently twist and manipulate the bulb to install it. If you don’t have a gentle touch you can ruin the bulb or the fixture. That is not the case with this fixture. Installation of bulbs is very very easy. It comes in a very Sturdy corrugated cardboard box. It is not likely to damage the fixture before you take it out of the box. Screws for basic assembly are included. Some things you need which are not included are 1) Three prong cord, 2) cable box connector 3) two T12 40W Bulbs. If you are using 14-2 WG house wire to connect it up instead of a 3 prong cord you will need a junction box, or, connect into an existing box. Basic knowledge of electrical wiring such as: how to connect the neutral (white) wire, the hot (black) wire, and how to ground the box (green) wire. If an electrician were to install this fixture it would not be an issue, but the average do it yourselfer may need to turn to u-tube to get instructions on how to wire up an electrical fixture. Pics include the fixture itself with the Three prong cord and the cable box connector installed.

This is a bare bones strip light unit. No diffuser hood. No bulbs, and you have to assemble it yourself, but for the overall cost, it is a high quality unit. To install it, you must fold both the bulb clip ends up and secure them with the enclosed screws, then install the cover which is done with a quick release clip. To wire it up, you have to punch out a knock out hole and add your own wire clamp. Then you'll need a couple wire nuts because the unit's wiring is just laying inside the cover. So overall, you'll need to be able to put it together and then an understanding of wiring to wire it up. But it worked for me perfectly and the installed ballast lit the bulbs right up. A money saving tip would be to just go ahead and buy 4 foot LED tubes instead of fluorescent. You get better light, and the LED's run cheaper, and they worked just fine in this unit for me.
