Now I build again. This time it is a larger plant lighting in sheet metal and 2 St. 30W 4000 k compact fluorescent bulbs from auto parts store. Very light for the money!
I have been using a little spill plate then had some pieces stainless steel over I got put together in half to get the size I wanted. In the future, I will build a fully galvanized sheet metal to keep the joint and it is cheaper and reflects good.
Sheet metal piece you need to this construction should be 600×480 m. m. Pålten ticked since about 45 degrees at each 160 m. m, you will have a ceiling of 160 m. m and two angled sides on 160 m. m. The length of the luminaire becomes 600 m. m.
Then you need to 2 St. plate pieces of 130×100 etc. which attach to the sides of the fixture and then drill holes in and fix lamphållarna in.
On top of ceiling luminaire is a piece of mdf disc glued to get the fixture a little more stable when I use fairly thin plate. A junction box is bolted onto the disc to connect the two wires from the lamphållarna, There also was attached cord with Plug and on/off switch.
The suspension I fixed with 2 St skruvögglor which are attached but 2 screws one on each side, inside and outside, and a little plastic-coated varjer and some vajerlås.
The lighting I've tested at a height of approximately. 80 cm above the countertop as the plants are at, and then highlights it an area of about 150×150 cm so you get a room with a lot of plants in this lighting.
Do you want to build your own this kind of plant, tube and can't fix plate bit myself so I have sheet metal bit bent and complete with holes for lamphållarna in galvanized sheet metal for about. 350:- drill all the holes yourself so ca. 250:-

2 St. lamp holders E27
2 St. CFLs 30W 4000 k (Auto parts store)
