Explosion Proof Work Lights.

One of the most important aspects which have a long-term impact on business performance, employee health and a variety of other factors is Worksite Lighting.  

Poor lighting at work can lead to fatigue, headaches, eye stress and even accidents. Too much light, on the other hand, can lead to headaches and stress. Both of these combined result in low productivity, poor quality of work and inability to complete an operation properly. 

The importance of worksite lighting increases manifold in a hazardous environment, where safety and security take the centre stage. Here, proper worksite lighting is not an option. A poorly lit hazardous environment can be disastrous. 

All lighting in a hazardous environment has to be of the explosion proof kind as mandated by regulatory authorities such as “Workplace” Directive 1999/92/CE (RD 681/2003) and “Equipment” Directive 2014/34/EU (RD 144/2016) of the European Union. Hence leading global manufacturers such as ATEXOR, Raytec, Western Technology, Kira and Acculux have a range of ATEX certified explosion proof work lights suitable for various purposes.
