Outlook clients ignoring table height

Trying to display a long barcode.
All email clients handle short barcodes (in this format) perfectly however, when the barcode is longer, all Outlook clients ignore the 50px height and instead elongate the barcode. See screenshot attached.

Attached is the code used to generate the emails seen in the screenshot.
Tried adding line-height, mso-line-height-rule, table height, border=“0”, cellpadding=“0”, cellspacing=“0” etc.. but still no joy.

What needs to be changed here in order for Outlook to maintain the 50px height, no matter the width?
