What is another word for miner's lamps?

Pronunciation: [mˈa͡ɪnəz lˈamps] (IPA)

Miner's lamps are known as safety lamps, flame safety lamps, or Davy lamps. The safety lamp, invented by Sir Humphry Davy in 1815, was designed for use in mines, where there was a risk of explosion from methane gas and coal dust. The lamps were made of brass or copper and had a glass window to let the light shine through. The flame inside the lamp was surrounded by a wire gauze, which prevented any sparks from escaping. The name "miner's lamp" is still commonly used today for lamps used in mines, but other terms are also used to refer to these essential safety tools.
