Alex Martinez: Xenon Safety

From American Cinematographer, Better Safe Than Sorry by Jay Holben (June 1998)

Darren Hart and Alex Martinez of Xenotech demonstrated the safe operation of a 2k Xenon fixture, as well as the re-lamping procedure. They explained that the gas contents within the Xenon globe, even at a cold stage, are under six atmospheres of pressure; therefore, any technicians who handle the bare globe must wear a lead safety suit and face mask to protect them from the possibility of lamp explosion.
