Explosion Proof High Bay Lighting
Explosion proof high bay lights are used in hazardous areas that have a high risk of accidental fires or explosions. These environments usually have some level of flammable gasses, vapors, dust or liquids that are present that can potentially ignite and create explosions.
One example of an ideal environment for explosion proof high bays is a paint storage facility or chemical warehouse. These environments are ideal for explosion proof high bay placement because they require specialized Class 1 Div 1 lights and also contain high ceilings.
Our explosion proof Class 1 Div 1 LED high bay lights have the proper design along with sufficient lumen output to cast high quality illumination throughout hazardous environments.
Explosion Proof High Bay Applications
Explosion proof LED high bays are highly versatile blast proof lighting fixtures that are most commonly mounted on ceilings and used to cast illumination from high ceiling heights, typically ranging between 15-40 feet high. This fixture can also be mounted on walls with or without a junction box and can even be pole mounted. As a result, there are a very wide range of applications for this type of light. Here are some of the most common uses,
Class 1 Division 1/Division 2 Lights
Our square shaped LED High Bays for hazardous areas are Class 1 Division 1 (C1D1) and/or Class 1 Division 2 (C1D2) certified. This means that these fixtures are designed to withstand flammable gasses, vapor, or liquids, as well as lower risk particles such as combustible dusts and ignitable fibers/flyings. In other words, these lighting fixtures can operate in virtually any hazardous environment.
Explosion Proof LED High Bay Mounting
Ceiling Mounting - Explosion proof square LED high bay lights can be mounted on ceilings inside hazardous areas. The fixture can be mounted to the ceiling using a U-shaped yoke mounting bracket; mounting accessories are included with the light.
Hook Pendant Mounting - These LED high bays can also be mounted to the ceiling using a standard hook pendant mount similar to UFO high bay lights.
Wall Mounting - These high bays can also be mounted on other flat surfaces such as walls using the yoke mounting bracket.
Wall Mounting w/ Junction Box - Wall mounting is a very common use for these high bays. The fixture is also compatible with a junction box.
Pole Mounting - Explosion proof high bay lighting fixtures can also be mounted on light poles either inside or outside a facility. You can install this fixture to a light pole by punch tapping on the top of the mounting bracket and tightening the set screw onto the pole and using the chain to balance the fixture. The pole length can be adjustable.
Arm Mounting - The fixture can also use a simple arm mount to latch onto walls or other flat surfaces. The arm mount is a separate accessory item. Please check the product specification sheets for more information.
Stanchion Mounting - Another mounting option for explosion proof high bays is Stanchion Mounting. In this case, the fixture will be propped up on an adjustable pole and used to illuminate a broad area.
