This is a highly expressive light fixture. Owing to its elaborate design and intensive use of materials, this explosion-proof, splash-proof light was only ever produced in small quantities. It was mainly used by the East German railways. The metal cylinder consists of solid die-cast aluminium and contains the fluorescent lamp ballast. The parallel, thick-walled tubes made out of safety glass provide the connection with the aluminium cover plates. The two easily replaceable standard fluorescent tubes ensure bright illumination. These lights are also suitable for outdoor use. Note that the original orange paintwork shows traces of wear.
