Adds Corrosion-Proof Hazardous Area Lights to Their Online Inventory now offers marine grade LED flood lights that illuminate areas near the ocean or near lakes 

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., April 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Certain environmental entities such as saltwater can cause corrosion in lights that are not designed for use in marine environments. To further illustrate, saltwater can penetrate into the small crevices and cracks in the light fixture, making it difficult to remove the salt and other corrosive substances. In order to prevent corrosion in lights exposed to saltwater, it is important to use materials that are specifically designed for marine environments

Marine grade LED flood lights are outdoor lighting fixtures designed specifically for use in harsh marine environments such as docks, piers, and boatyards. These lights are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of saltwater, sun, and wind, making them a durable and reliable choice for specialized outdoor lighting.

Other Types Of LED Hazardous Area Lights

There are a number of different types and styles of LED explosion proof lights depending on the area and level of volatility. For example, C1D1 (Category 1, Division 1) is a higher level of hazardous location classification than C1D2 (Category 1, Division 2). C1D1 is used in areas where hazardous materials may be present in the form of gasses, vapors, or dusts under normal operating conditions, while C1D2 is used in areas where hazardous materials may be present in the form of gasses, vapors, or dusts under abnormal operating conditions. C1D1 requires more stringent safety requirements than C1D2.

Additionally, C1D1 and C1D2 are classifications for hazardous locations that indicate the level of risk for explosions and other hazards in a particular area. You can learn more about the different levels of explosion proof classifications for lighting fixtures on the National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s (NEMA) website.
