Thomas Color Duplex Super Safelight (DUC) for Color Printing (2 Filters Included)

No Longer Available

The Thomas DUC Color Duplex Super Safelight is considered the best professional darkroom lamp. When used, the vanes should be fully closed so that light pases through the black edge of the lamp.

The light level will appear rather low, but it will still be many times brighter than that of conventional color safelights.

NOTE: This is not a typical darkroom safelight. It is a heavy duty unit designed to provide many years of trouble-free service. Inasmuch as this unit weighs 20lbs, it requires extremely secure suspension from the ceiling.

Application Color darkroom safelight. Use FCD filters for color work. Use FBD for standard black and white printing.
