Explosion proof emergency lights are designed for hazardous locations, such as off-shore drilling rigs, manufacturing facilities, and processing plants. In such situations a variety of flammable and ignitable gases can be present, which can cause explosions.
To prevent such dangerous situations, explosion proof emergency lights are hermetically sealed and made from the most durable and long-lasting materials. We manufacture our hazardous location emergency lights in North America and all models come with a three-year warranty.
There are two popular types of explosion proof emergency lights:
- Class 1 fixtures are designed for use in environments that feature flammable gases and vapors
- Class 2 fixtures are designed for use in environments that feature combustible dust and fiber flyings
Furthermore, there are two sub-types of Class 1 and Class 2 emergency lights, referred to as "divisons".
- Division 1 situations refer to installations where hazardous materials are present during normal operations, i.e. at all times.
- Division 2 situations refer to installations where hazardous materials are present during abnormal operations, i.e. only during accidental situations.
Emergency Lights Co. provides all types of explosion proof emergency lights and exit signs, all of which are UL Listed and approved for use throughout the United States.
