Default Ballasts covers/ Channel Covers

I have a customer with several high bays that don't have the covers for the ballasts. Just have wires hanging down. Does anybody know of a source that would have them online. They are from 1974 so I told them I may not be able to help them but.

Pretty safe to say that you're SOL. Those fixtures are end-of-life anyhow.

You may have to make your own covers, at least so the wiring does not show.

Fantastic. You're young in human years. Those fixtures, however, are gasping for breath in the old folk's home.

I know what you meant. I was just having some fun. I figured I would have no luck but they are too cheap to buy new.

Had a similar problem years ago and just made some covers out of white aluminum coil stock and a brake. Cheap and easy.
