    see pic of local council building with many hanging fluoros in foyer:

    The hanging tubes appear to be T5s and there is NO enclosure.

    An internal metallised strip is visible running end to end.

    The low end has a neat fitting, white plastic cover.

    Light emanates from all around the tube.

    Google turns up nothing like it on offer.

    What is it ?

  2. A close-up would help.

    Ryness Electrical always have something like this on display in
    their shop window, but I can't find it on their website.

    I've seen them used in other shops - more usually they are tied
    up horizontally, but they can hang vertically.

    ** It looks exactly as I described.

    I even asked the former mayor of Ashfield ( cnr Ted Cassidy) and was assured
    the tubes were regular fluoros.

    But regular fluoros do not work when connected at one end only.

  5. *** Perhaps there are unseen wires up a hidden side of the tubes.

    I can't take the time to view the URL, but if there are caps on the
    exposed ends, this might be the case.
