          This is a high quality fluorescent fixture that makes an excellent choice for many applications. Over the years I've purchased many fluorescent fixtures priced in the $10 to $20 range which you might find a value where inexpensive lighting will suffice such as a work shop or shed with low ceilings. However, I've found the quality in those to leave a greater desire as they seldom last more than a couple years due to low quality ballasts. There was a time I would consider replacing the ballasts but now find they often cost nearly the same as the entire fixture. And those don't come with covers to diffuse the light.

          Since switching to these fixtures, find they start quicker, spread the light better and last far longer than those budget lights. The quality and construction makes these an excellent choice for family spaces such as a finished basement, above dropped ceilings and even in the garage or shop since you'll find they last far longer than budget brands. That in itself makes this fixture a better value. Add to that the cover does an excellent job of diffusing the light over a wide area. And wherever you need extra light, this is also available in a 4 tube design with the same high quality. Read Less

          I've purchased a lot of fluorescent fixtures over the years for numerous projects including for shop use and family spaces and some commercial applications.
          In some of those applications, specific features weren't a consideration. Lighting a garage or shop is often a matter of purchasing some inexpensive fixtures and hanging them wherever needed. But in doing so I've found this often isn't a good value. You can purchase fluorescent fixtures for well under $20 each. But after all these years I've found they are often short lived, have cheap quality ballast's and don't come with diffuse (covers).

Often the ballasts on many of these cheaper shop lights only last a few years and the ballasts cost almost as much (sometimes more) than you pay for the entire fixture.
          This unit uses 4 tubes and may be more light than needed in some cases. Therefore you may want to consider this same product in the 2 tube model for certain applications.
          These fixtures are well constructed and use a high quality ballast that should provide many years of dependable service. This is important when installing them in areas that are highly restricted such as a drop ceiling. The covers are well designed for easy access for when there's a failing fluorescent tube needing replacement. And they spread the light better than some of the others I've used.
          When doing an upgrade in a family space such as a finished basement, I would highly consider this product for it's high quality and longevity. But it also makes for a great value for shop lighting. Read Less

          Professional or amateur, for anyone who needs to know if their power outlets have correct polarity or if GFI circuits (bath and kitchen) are operating safely, this tool will tell you. I've had a number of these and as a handy person, sometimes misplace them. Since they are cost effective easy to use and such a useful tool, I've no problem replacing it when I lose it.

          Every quikrete product has a somewhat specific use and choosing the product that best fits your need is important. In this case I needed a quick setting product not real rocky, in order to create a water barrier. Time was important as my work would need to carry the potential weight of a vehicle within a day or 2. It needed to set up fast due to expected rain within 48 hours as well needing to be able to bear a load. I obtained my objective, achieved a smooth finish and ended my water problem. And as expected it took the load of the vehicle. For time, strength, set up and smoothability, quikrete can't be beat.

          Answer: 
          This is rated as ZERO VOC as shown ON THE LABEL.
          Zero doesn't always mean zero and even zero VOC paints typically have some VOC's present when wet. Zero means that volatiles were undetectable during testing. Once dry there are virtually no VOC's and there is virtually no odor while the paint is still wet
          The zero VOC rating is one reason I chose this product.
