The Scorpion TGX

caving and mining lamp

This is a new concept in underground lighting and as such is rather unique in that it has laminated glass. This is a feature that to the best of our knowledge no other lamp has.

LATEST Nov 2018

 

I have improved the laminated glass which is now 5mm and am redesigning the front with new faceplates to accommodate this. The diameter is reduced to 42mm glass in a 52mm diameter surround.

Test results are startling with hefty blows from a small ball hammer leaving the glass unmarked. I actually tried to break the thing to see the breakage pattern but had to give up.

 

I manufacture these myself and had initial problems as excess heat causes decomposition of the thermoplastc interlayer, I now have the process perfected.

 

The lamp will to the best of my knowledge be unique in having this type of glass. All the other lamps with the usual Scurion type rimless glass are polycarbonate.

 

Pic below, note the 3 layers

I have also redesigned the battery box which will have an aluminium attachment plate for direct mounting on the back of a helmet rather than the 4mm shockcord normally used.

 

Going to be one tough SOB

 

I can hold the price at £195 regardless of the improvements.

Nice helmet bracket!
