Default Re: Lamps for lamp limiters

As far as I know, Rough Service Bulbs are exempt from the banning, at least for a while. I still had a couple knocking around from my time out on the road banging around in lofts, and they lasted a very long time indeed, where a normal bulb would stop working after a fairly routine bang or thump. Available in 60 and 100W usually, but tended to be under-run as well as being more robust in construction.
They were about twice or three times the price of normal bulbs back then, and if you happen upon any old stock, snap it up. Electrical wholesalers might still have some in the back room, on a dusty shelf. Most service and field maintenance guys have been using LED mains or battery lights for some time now.
