“Heavy-duty” is one of those variable terms that can change in definition, depending on its application. In the case of emergency lights, the term heavy-duty refers to lights that are used in applications where damage to the lamp assembly, specifically the lamp case is possible. In other words:
Although this is not a regulatory requirement, the risk is in having a light damaged by worker, forklift, or the weather, rendering it inoperable. Should that happen, your facility would not be up to code, and could result in a fine if you are inspected. Even worse, a worker could be trapped inside the facility in a true emergency situation.
Even within emergency lighting, the term heavy-duty lights can be divided into a number of categories:

Heavy-duty emergency lighting is more expensive than standard emergency lighting, it pays off in longer life and reduced risk of non-compliance fines. To minimize the overall cost of your emergency lighting system, you must understand the exact application in each area where you need to install emergency lights.
Some companies install the same emergency light throughout their facility, seeking the worst-case scenario, and buying lights to meet that need. While this is commendable from a safety standpoint, it is not an effective use of your company’s resources. Paying the extra cost to install wet duty lights inside your building, in order to maintain consistency, will only pay off if the roof of your building is blown off.

Likewise, buying higher wattage units for all applications, just because you need them for some applications, is spending money that you can utilize elsewhere. You can maintain some consistency by buying all of your lights from the same series, without having to buy more lighting than you need. To be the most effective, you must analyze each individual application and choose the most effective light for that particular location.By Evan Delaporte+
