It is commonly known within food manufacturing, preparation and a number of different industrial environments that the main risk of breaking light bulbs occurs during routine maintenance, mishandling can result in uncoated fluorescent tubes to shatter and glass contamination to occur, potentially being very costly. This risk would be avoided if you were to invest in Greenstock Shatterproof Lamps who offer the ultimate in glass fragment retention.

Both a variety of lamps and coatings are available through The Greenstock Lamp Company such as fluorescent tubes, incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescents and FEP (Fluorinated ethylene propylene) or PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) coating.

The more superior of the two coatings is the FEP coating which conforms to the IEC/ BS EN 61549 standard, meaning not only do these lamps guarantee 100% fragment retention but they are approved to be used within food and pharmaceutical manufacturing environments. The requirement for FEP Shatterproof Lamps to be used within these environments is believed to soon become a legal obligation, which only emphasises the need for Shatterproof Lamps in the work place.
