Double Tube Light Tan GDR hanging


Double Tube Light in Tan from the GDR (DDR), hanging

A rugged hanging Tube Lamp from the 1950s/1960s from the DDR/GDR. This is Upcycling at it’s best!

In the rough work environment (fragile) fluorescent tubes have to survive and hence they designed these dust-free, explosion-proof and splash-proof industrial lights. After an explosion or accident in the factory hall, coal mine and/or laboratory the fluorescent tubes had to remain lit, that increased the survival chances of the employees/workers.

With cast aluminum ends and parallel sturdy glass tubes, these are practically indestructible, and have a tough rugged style that you won’t find anywhere else. We clean them and convert them for consumer light bulbs, fluorescent tubes, etc..
In principle, we only renovate them when there is an order, so we can make your lamp exactly to your liking! (we do have diverse examples in our store, come have a look!) Let us know what you want!

The bulbs are replace by unscrewing the end-caps which have a safety cable so they won’t fall to the floor.
