Hazardous Area Lighting For Explosive Atmospheres


Abstract/Technology Overview

Lighting in explosive atmospheres is one of the most highly regulated industrial globally. Barrier EX have the only Zone 1,21,2,22 - Class 1 Div. 2 floodlight available that has fully encapsulated LEDs and the ability for customer changeable output angles. It is our belief that the only way to be100% compliant to EX mb regulations is to fully encapsulate all electronic components including the LED light source. Until now no certified luminaire has been able to achieve this whilst offering flexible output beam angles. Barrier Ex's new and exclusive Optical Refraction Angle Management achieves this goal.

Applications predominantly include oil and gas companies either upstream or downstream and their supply chains. Other processes and industries that our lights and enclosures are used in that we would be interested to make contact with, either directly or within the supply chain are: Airports, Chemical processing, Distilleries, Food manufacturing, Grain storage, MOD and military, Pharmaceuticals, Ports and terminals, Power generation, Shipyards, Surface mining, Water and waste treatment, Wood pulp and paper manufacture
