Two Men and a Hatco Heat Lamp


We shall begin by stating that you should never, ever stand on heat lamps. Unless it is in the name of science. While they probably won't ever be stood upon,Hatco's heat lampswill undergo a lot of abuse in your food-service operation, especially when used as shelves.

With so much stress that is put on your heat lamps, it is good to know that they could stand up to the pressure of two guys standing on the extruded casing - right in the center. For those who are unfamiliar with the terminology, "extruded" means that a single piece of steel was pushed through a die to form the material. Other manufacturing processes, such as bending or welding flat metal, can lead to weakened joints. So what is the real-world advantage of these heady metal-working terms?

Strength and durability. No one plans for abuse on restaurant equipment, but staff leaning on your shelves or an over-abundance of heavy dinnerware can lead to buckling in the real world. Bent shelves, broken internals, and shattered bulbs can make for a bad night; if the external casing is stronger, you can be sure that the internals are better protected.

In Hatco's case, two men can stand on a 96" long casing without the sides collapsing and without it laterally warping. Talk about a testament to the overall quality of Hatco's products. While food warmers are typically in the 24?-72? range,like Hatco's Glo-Ray GRAM-24, GRAM-48, and GRAM-72 models, they still have the strength and thickness of the longer piece demonstrated here. The shorter the food warmer is, the less prone it is to bending.

When considering a new heat lamp purchase, consider strength along with wattage, heat type, and length. You never know when you might need it.
