ORIGINAL VINTAGE CA. 1940 CROUSE-HINDS/HOLOPHANE EXPLOSION PROOF LIGHT 40+ EXAMPLES $379

IN THE YEAR 1940, IN AN OIL REFINERY IN OKLAHOMA,, THE INDUSTRIAL LIGHT FIXTURE SHOWN ABOVE WAS ONE OF MANY INSTALLED CLOSE TO THE CEILING OF THE LOADING DOCK AREA. A FEW YEARS AGO, THE COMPANY UPDATED THEIR LIGHTING FIXTURES….AND DOWN CAME THE “OLD” LIGHTS. TODAY, MY PASSION IS TO RECLAIM AND REUSE THESE TREASURES OF OUR ELECTRICAL PAST AND OFFER THEM TO YOU, THRU MY WEBSITE http://www.vintagebarnlights.com OR BY CLICKING ON THIS LINK TO THE eBay LISTING IN MY STORE APPLETON ESALES.

BECAUSE OF THE ELECTRICAL HAZARD POSED BY THE GASES, FUMES, STEAM AND DUST…..EITHER EXITING OR ENTERING THE FIXTURE…..THE AREA REQUIRED AN EXPLOSION PROOF FIXTURE.  THE CONDULET, MANUFACTURED BY CROUSE-HINDS, STILL HOLDS THE ORIGINAL PORCELAIN SOCKET AND THE GASKETS.  TO PROTECT THE LIGHTBULB, THE GLASS BULB PROTECTOR FROM THE HOLOPHANE GLASS COMPANY SIMPLY SCREWS INTO THE CONDULET.  ORIGINALLY, AND STILL, THE SOCKET HAD JUST TWO POLE CONTACTS. FOR OUR ELECTRICAL CODES TODAY, I ADD ANOTHER CONTACT AND GROUND THE SOCKET/FIXTURE. AS YOU SEE IN THE PICTURE, THIS IS SUSPENDED USING A PIPE, AND THESE ARE ALL AVAILABLE TO THE BUYERS FINISHED LENGTH REQUIREMENTS.

I INVITE YOU TO MY WEBSITE TO VIEW THE OTHER 400+ RECLAIMED VINTAGE INDUSTRIAL LIGHTS AVAILABLE.
