Shat-R-Shield expands line of shatter-resistant CFLs – August 2011
By Alyssa Dalton
August 18, 2011 – Shat-R-Shield has expanded its line of shatter-resistant CFLs, adding that the new selection includes CFL-PARs, globes, reflectors and higher wattage twists- all of which if accidentally broken, virtually all glass, phosphors and mercury are safely contained within the clear and tough, skin-tight plastic coating, it says. Shat-R-Shield says it has adapted its manufacturing process to add a slightly thicker coating, ensuring that safety is never compromised. The process especially benefits Twist models by adding structural support between the fragile glass tubing that will survive aggressive drop testing, it explains.
