There are many people and manufacturers who use the Edison bulbs and make the lights on their own. For all those the concept of heat output is of highest consideration. When you use the fabric shades and the inflammable materials in the projects then there is need to make sure that there is adequate space between the material and the bulb. The next point to be considered is to make sure that the material is supported and is not left free to flap into bulb and rest on it.
