Changing Sensory Room Lamps

If you’re lucky enough to have a new sensory room, chances are there aren’t a lot of lamps to change as most new products are LED driven. However for those products that do need periodic lamp changes, here are a few tips:
1. Switch the unit off and leave the lamp to cool for at least 20 minutes.
2. Don’t touch the ‘bulb’ part of the lamp. Touching the bulb part transfers grease from your fingers onto the unit, thereby creating a hotspot. When the lamp is switched on it will heat this area quickly and the lamp is more likely to blow sooner.
3. When you are taking a cover off a product to change the lamp, make a note of its orientation. Some products have covers which must be replaced in the same direction to ensure a steady air flow over the lamp.
4. Whilst you’re changing the lamp, you may want to do a little maintenance. If the unit has a fan, give it a hoover. Cleaning the fan means that more air will pass through and over the lamp, therefore keeping it cooler and prolonging its life.
5. Carefully clean the lens. Use a soft cloth and carefully clean the lens if the unit has one. You will be amazed at the results!
