lense type

lense type

ALso as you know, jobs as big as schools the specs will tell you what luminaires to use. In a school you may need to use the parobolic lense like you see in a book store????

we have done 2 schools and the fixtures you need to go with are 4 lamp T-8 's. alot of folks dont know it but they are cheaper than the 3 lampers for some reason. If you have a city or county electric supply in your area they carry a line called Tamlite that are the same quality as cooper and lithonia but about 15% less expensive.

thanks for the suggestions, i was looking at those tamlite fixtures, i like the ge ballast over the universal, they were less than the coopers, about 45 for 4lt8,

we have been relamping existing fixtures with the advance t8 ballast,
we have done approx 500-600 so far.
