Asbestos was used in the manufacture of certain items of older stage/tv/film lighting equipment.

If your equipment has not been professionally serviced in some time, please check for the following:

  • Asbestos power inlet cables
    Power cables covered with a white woven outer sheath are most likely asbestos. Replace with silicone-insulated (heat resistant) cable at the earliest opportunity.
  • Asbestos insulators beneath lamp base
    Check for an asbestos washer under the lamp base of early “Patt” lanterns. Replace with modern equivalents.

Strand Electric Junior 8 dimmers also contain a significant quantity of asbestos.

Seek advice from local officials about the correct and safe way to dispose of asbestos in your area.

There may be other instances of asbestos in stage lighting products – please let me know if you know of any.
