Lamps designed specifically for the food industry

We produce Europe’s widest range of IEC 61549 compliant fragment retention lamps (sometimes known as shatterproof lamps), providing must-have insurance against glass contamination from accidental breakage. GlassGuard BlackBand® to IEC 61549 fluorescent lamps and linear LED lamps are coated using a high tensile strength modified fluoropolymer resin applied by automated direct extrusion technology. Our high speed patented process hermetically seals the coating to the lamp envelope, including end-caps, providing 100% protection. The coating ‘melt’ precisely flows over the contour of each lamp eliminating any potential gaps which can lead to end cap ejection in the event of accidental breakage.

GlassGuard BlackBand® fluorescent lamps provide a higher level of performance at the critical point when lamps are replaced after 20,000 – 50,000 hours of use. Our “BlackBand®” coating will not degrade like most other products currently on the market and will contain the dangerous glass shards if accidentally broken, in accordance with IEC 61549 Standard.
