    I want to build individual reflectors for my T5 units. What should the diameter be? Anybody got an idea.

    I want an enginering company to roll and cut the alanod for me. So that each reflector can house one T5. The front and back reflector will have one side a bit longer. So that you do not see the light...:)
    And at the ends just ends it of with another square piece.

    Nobody knows?

    Anybody, if you have some, please measure the width, and then the height. Obviously the height will not be the same as 2 times the width. But maybe it is?

    Hi, Riaan. Around 4-5cm will be perfect IMO.
