Does anyone have any recomendations for a paticular light fitting for a canopy in a commercial kitchen, as it has to be able to withstand major heat.
What do you suggest, any ideas?

My boss usually just fits vapour proof fluorescents,with the clip on acrylic
cover,though I personally find them inadequate as they only last a year or two.You can get explosion proof ones but you are talking BIG money.How much do you want to pay?

At the moment we use the standard ip rated flourescent fittings, but we have found after around 6 weeks or so.. the fittings go brittle and crack under its own weight. At the moment as a temp fix, we have just put some string around the fixing just to hold it there.
When it comes to budget, i said to the client ''invest now and it will pay you back in the long run'' as we all say. He said get a price and we can discuss from there. But from my gathering and his interest i'd be saying he'd be happy with around £40-£50 per light fitting mark.

Are the explosion proof fitting in this sort of range?..

Thanks
