A midcentury modern yellow lamp can fetch anywhere from $270 to $5,773 depending on the size, period, and other attributes. The average lamp sells for about $1,191 on 1stDibs. However, the prices can vary widely, so it’s best to do some comparison shopping before making a purchase.
Sodium vapor lamp
Sodium vapor yellow lamp contains sodium metal and a small amount of neon or argon in a borosilicate glass gas discharge tube. These lamps emit dim red/pink light when they are first started but turn bright yellow when the sodium vapour reaches its boiling point. They produce a narrow spectrum of light that has a wavelength of 589.3 nanometers.
The light from a sodium vapor lamp is yellow in color because the sodium vapor emits light at the color frequency that is most sensitive to it. The light produced by a sodium vapor lamp has a monochromatic yellow hue, making objects appear to be shadowed in a dark room.
When compared to a mercury vapor lamp, a sodium vapor lamp is far more energy efficient. Its lifespan is up to 100,000 hours, more than four times longer than that of the LPS and HPS. Unlike the mercury vapor lamp, it requires only one bulb. However, LEDs have lost their traditionally dominant advantage as the most energy-efficient bulb.
Sodium vapor lamps have low heat output and are generally used for street lighting and other illumination. Their high efficiency and long life makes them great for outdoor settings. However, there are some disadvantages to sodium vapor lamps. Sodium is highly flammable and can catch fire. Because of this, it is not a good choice for indoor lighting.
Temporary string lights
For temporary lighting applications, yellow lamp temporary string lights can be installed to provide bright, clean lighting. They are available in many different types, including UL-listed, flat-wire and molded-cord models. Designed with safety in mind, these lighting options feature non-corrosive construction and UL-approved sockets. These lights also feature an open birdcage design that makes it easy to swap out the lamp.
Temporary string lights are an excellent option for job sites. They are portable, easy to install and are available in several different configurations, including hazardous location, explosion-proof and vapor proof. You can choose between LED, compact fluorescent and incandescent light sources, as well as voltage options that can vary from 120 to 277V AC, 50/60 Hz.
