Like many of the sheet metal work projects that we manufacture this little spot welded box is never seen by the final customer. This sheet metal enclosure called a bed head light and is commonly used in hotel bed rooms. The sheet metal fabricated box is used to safely enclose a light source with a reflector which then projects its light output through a fibre optic cable to the light source head. The advantage of fibre optic lighting is it’s a cold light at the point of delivery. The hot lamp is housed within the sheet metal box and the light source without the heat is where you want it, in this case on the pages of a book. The sheet metal fabricated enclosure is manufactured from CR4 mild steel and powder coated matt black to help conduct heat away from the enclosed light source.
