Does anyone have a recommendation for HF 6ft Twin 70w Fluorescent Lights?
You know the sort, IP rated so as dust and damp proof.

I have read that Tridonic are very reliable ballasts and I like the look of the Thorn fittings but they are quite pricey.

If someone were to ask you install some garage Fluorescent lights what would you fit?

Garage, sorry Im in training for pedant of the year, but when you say garage I take it you mean garage, not spray booth,..?

It's just a garage attached to a house, well our house to be precise.

It gets a little damp and dusty and we work on cars in it occasionally.

I think some of these cheaper imported ballasts can be unreliable but that's just my opinion.

Try Hilclare Cazorla IP65 Florescent - 2 x 70W units - well they do loads of sizes. The guys you pass on the way to your day job sell them.
