Click to view full size image

An recessed ceiling heat lamp fixture by Nutone in my apartment's bathroom. Has an Westinghouse 250 watt R-40 infrared heat flood bulb, had worked for many years since the 1980's until now, I will have to ask the maintenance guy for a new replacement. The fixture is controlled by a mechanical wall timer switch that keeps the light on for up to an hour.

Aren't those things supposed to be dangerous to you? I seen a Sears sun lamp before at the thrift store, but didn't buy it. It looked similar to this. But it had a label "do not expose eyes to lamp"

I collect exit signs, preferably vintage ones.

I also have a little bit of a thing for light bulbs, too. Of course, hoarding them due to the incandescent bulb ban.

Heat lamps are not dangerous since there is no UV coming from the bulb.

These do get very Warm standing under it,. Not long after I shot the pic, my maintenance guy brought up a Philips replacement, I had lived in this building for more than 20 years and finally this Westy bulb died ! Goes to show how good quality stuff was made oeven back in the 1980's . Should of gotten that Sears light to use with with other smaller floods like 50 watt R30 types , that did looked like a nice little lamp but I wouldn't run that red flood in it though.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!
