The Plastic Housing on my Relevé Spot Warped After Left in Direct Sunlight or Next to a Window


My Relevé Spot fixture housing warped, or melted, after being left either outside or in front of a window

Description/Explanation of Issue

The fixture lenses can act like big magnifying glasses and focus a lot of energy into the fixture. This can damage components in the fixture, in addition to the covers, and should be avoided on any fixtures, not just those from ETC.


Store the unit so the fixture head and lenses are facing away from any direct sunlight, or cover the fixture head with some sort of cloth cover to prevent sunlight from directly hitting the fixture lenses.
