Has anybody else had to deal with CFL's and explosion proof globes that won't let heat escape. With the inability to purchase high enough wattage lamps, these have been substituted, only to burn up within a month or so, but dropping in wattage of lamps is creating a dangerously dim environment.

Yes. I've had the best luck with those manufactured by Technical Consumer Products when in totally enclosed gasketed fixtures.

This is a certified explosion proof fixture?

We have started using 10 watt A-19 LED replacing 42 watt CFLs. So far so good!
