Darkroom safe lights are specialty fixtures for use in film development or scientific laboratories. Incandescent lamping and special filters protect the images captured on sensitive X-ray and photographic films. Films may be exposed for short durations to low intensity, limited spectrum light, allowing transfer to equipment where processing takes place in total darkness. Recommended filter and lamp wattage is specified by the film manufacturer. A variety of filters is available to suit most applications. With proper filter selection, this fixture provides illumination without film damage. Available in single compartment (primary) or two-compartment (primary and secondary) styles. Lamp wattage is limited to 15W for the primary (filtered) compartment. Higher wattages will result in filter damage and over-exposure of film.
