Industrial lighting must sometimes provide illumination in areas where usual lighting is inadequate due to the risk of accidental ignitions of flammable or explosive of materials. Airfal range of products include fluorescent light fixtures, that are suitable for Zone 1 and Zone 2 lighting installations with ATEX certification.
A high risk or hazardous area is where a mixture of air and potentially explosive substances such as gases, vapours, mists or dusts, could spread. Typical examples of hazardous environments are refineries, drilling platforms, chemical and power-generation facilities, mines… In these locations, it is required to ensure safety against occurrence of sparks and excessive temperature or arcs with adequate light fixtures. Currently, lighting for such areas requires complying with standards classified as Zone 1 and Zone 2.
Zone-1 contains a hazardous gas/air mixture under normal operating conditions. Zone-2 is hazardous only in abnormal operating conditions, and if so, it will only exist for a short time.
Our Explosion Protected Lighting For Hazardous Locations include fluorescent light fixtures that have been developed for use in hazardous areas and harsh environments and are certified. These fluorescent light fittings are manufactured with the highest quality materials and finishes.
