Please be aware that all our vacuum formed shells are made with thermoformed plastic. They can melt if exposed to too much heat. Great care must be taken with the choice of lamp and placement within the shell. We recommend LEDs which produce little heat. Other lamps can be used but care must be taken to insure proper wattage, distance of lamp from shell and possible use of a reflector between the shells and the lamp to insure long life of you footlight shells. If you are unsure please test on one shell first to insure your choices will not damage the plastic shells. Fiberglass shells are available in two sizes and are very resistant to heat.

All our footlights are custom made to your order and we maintain a no return policy on custom made items.
