Darkroom light

A special light source, designed to emit specific wavelengths of light, whihc provides sufficient illumination for darkroom workers but does not affect X-ray films or other kinds of radiographic films being loaded, stored or developed. The light or light bulb usually emits a red light and is sometimes known as a safelight or darkroom light.

The lamp emits a dark red colour that can be used to develop green or blue films.

The lamp’s recommended minimum distance from the film treatment area is about 1.2m.



Red-coloured bulb:

Red-coloured bulbs or tubes are not recommended in a dark room; irregular voltage and heating action on the bulb or tube can cause micro-cracks in the outer-colour coating which can emit white light that is not visible to human eyes, but nevertheless will jeopardise X-ray film development.
