question about OEM fogs

for any of you that have OEM fogs, what is that metal thing surrounding the bulb?

a co-worker told me that it was to absorb most of the heat generated by the bulb, so the reflective part wont melt if i have it on for a long time. is this true?

I don't believe this is the case. I have them on my car and took a good look. The piece is attached by one screw at the top and does not appear have the ability to sink out much if any heat. Rather I think it is to improve the flat dispersal quality of the fog light beam. it shields the front of the bulb and has a notch in the middle, again to create a the flat pattern that works best to cut through fog etc.
