The following instructions are general warning instructions for heat lamps.
Please read the individual instructions for your specific product or application before using.
Heat Lamps are designed for use in applications specifically requiring a short wave infrared radiation source. Infrared radiation from these lamps causes surfaces to be heated. This lamps should never be placed closer than 18 inches to any person or surface and with some lamps longer distances are required.
A. Heat lamps should not be used on infants, children, incapacitated persons, or sleeping or unconscious persons without continuous, responsible attendant. Do not use over sensitive skin or persons having poor blood circulation. Sufficient temperatures are generated that may cause burns. To reduce risk of eye injury, do not look at exposed lamps in operation. In industrial applications where large banks of these lamps may be used, appropriate eye protection should be used when continual exposure is expected. Do not use this heat source in close proximity to combustible materials (litter, paper, etc.) or to materials adversely affected by heat or drying.
B. Although these lamps are carefully constructed using the best materials, certain conditions beyond the manufacturer's control may cause the glass bulb to crack or shatter. Prevent water, moisture, liquids or metal objects from coming in contact with these lamps as the glass may shatter. Use a protective screen or mesh between the lamps and the exposed person or other application where glass shattering would be a safety hazard. Only use lamps in wet or moist environments, including sauna, shower, bathing, bathroom or other areas where steam or moisture may accumulate; if listed as appropriate for this use.
C. Avoid scratching, scraping or striking a hard surface with the glass bulb since this could cause minute cracks. Do not use if the glass bulb is scratched, cracked or touching accessory equipment.
D. Use only in appropriate equipment specifically designed for heat lamp use and designed for your specific product.
E. Avoid getting oil from fingerprints or other sources on heat lamps. Oil will shorten life and in the case of quartz-halogen heat lamps will cause almost instant failure.
