Shatterproof lamps


Shatterproof lamps

Are you up to date with industry standards relating to the use of fluorescent lamps in food production areas? Ensure your shatterproof tubes are ‘Lamp Source banded’ to prove they are certified to the IEC61549 standard as recognised by the BRC (British Retail Consortium) and the IFS (International Food Standards).

Accidental breakages which happen during re-lamping have been proven to cost companies thousands due to food wastage and production time lost. By ensuring that your shatterproof coating complies with the new IEC 61549 standards you can have peace of mind knowing that they retain 100% glass particles and all phosphor powders.

5 good reasons to use Lamp Source shatterproof tubes:

  1. Guaranteed 100% glass retention - tested from height of up to 4 metres!
  2. Passes all heath and safely audits carried out by the BRC and the IFS
  3. The FEP coating withstands temperatures up to 200°C
  4. The FEP coating will outperform the service life of the lamp
  5. The FEP coating will not discolour or degrade

Food display lamps


Food display lamps

A range of fluorescent, halogen and discharge lamps are available to display food; enhancing colours without disguising poor produce.

  • Lamps for displaying bread & cheese:
    Lamps in the colour range of 2500K – 2700K give a pleasant warm light suitable for the display of bread and cheese, bringing out their true colours to enhance their appearance.
  • Lamps for displaying meat:
    Meat exposed to artificial light can show chemical reactions which can lead to colour changes, ie: meat fading considerably or going grey. At Lamp Source we stock a range of meat counter lamps which have been specially designed to enhance displayed meat products, bringing out their true natural colour without disguising poor produce.
  • Lamps for displaying fruit & vegetables:
    Most supermarkets devote a special section to fruit and vegetables. A warmish general lighting provides the right ambiance for customer shopping experience, while directional lighting can be used to bring out the freshness and colour of the produce on display. A crisp white light makes green vegetables look fresher, while warmer colours with reds and oranges, make fruits look more appealing.
