Safety-coated lighting

August 4, 2004
Shat-R-Shield's Teflon-coated halogen PAR lamp and Teflon-coated ultraviolet germicidal fluorescent lamp feature safety coating. According to the company, the coating protects products and employees from glass shards, gases, and other lamp elements if broken. The halogen lamp uses a coating that resists chemical contamination and degradation, as well as breakage from thermal shock caused by hot and cold liquids. The ultraviolet lamp features a special UV-transmitting glass protected by a Teflon coating and can be used to kill microorganisms in the air and water to help control contamination.
