"Safelight" is defined as the room light illumination that will not fog photographic materials during the time period required for normal handling and processing.

The type of safelight recommended provides the maximum illumination, to which the photographic materials have the lowest sensitivity.

Darkroom Safelights provide an overall and shadow free illumination causing less eyestrain and consequently a better working environment. The "fade-free" filters for our darkroom safelights are designed for long life. The filters are subject to a 10,000 hour accelerated ultra violet ageing test to verify the dyes are "fade-free." In the unlikely event of tube breakage, the tube shield is designed to contain the glass fragments and protect personnel and valuable equipment.

The special polyester filters, coated both sides for safety are enclosed within the polycarbonate sleeve and control the light source to very precise margins, giving maximum illumination levels and a generous safe handling time.

Safelight handling time varies from 3 minutes for Scanner film to 15 minutes to Slow Ortho-chromatic products. Film and paper sensitivity has increased dramatically over recent years.


The recommended quantity of safelights for a given area is one four foot light per 50 square feet of work area.

*Please note - the prices quoted below are for the supply of the red safelight tubes only. Unless you are using an existing fluorescent tube holder/fitting, the electrical housing and fixings must be purchased separately through an approved electrical supplier.
