Oh what to do! We are working on the performance venue of an 1880's opera house. The footlights were updated somewhere in the mid 50/60's, the Department of Historic Resourses has been very restrictive about what we can and can not do. 2 weeks ago a kid fell into the footlights pit (no bulbs so he was ok). Now we need to do something about them. I want to restore the lights to make them work, put in some small led or florecent bulbs to please the history people, than cover them with heavy duty plexi that is walkable. Has any else had experiance with dealing with this problem.
