The heavy construction of this explosion proof Russell and Stoll light set allows these stunning pieces to weigh in at just under 21 pounds each. Russell and Stoll made this light to measure 13 inches tall. The base measures 4 3/4 inches square with the widest section of the light housing measuring almost 7 inches wide. The undamaged glass globe is about 6 inches tall and has raised ribs on the interior surface that helps magnify the displacement of the light.
To access the bulb, the top section of the light spins free off the base. The top section that spins off as one piece consists of the cage, the globe, and the large cast bronze section just below the globe.
We have installed a new bulb socket made by Westinghouse Electric that is UL-Listed and rated for any voltage under 250 volts. Additionally, we have installed new wiring including a ground wire that exits the light from the center of the base. The original conduit hole on the lower housing as been fitted with a threaded brass plug. The housing on this light has the original builders plate that includes the Underwriters Laboratory certification.
