New Explosion Proof LED High Bay Lighting for Hazardous Locations Offered by Access Fixtures

WORCESTER, MA, September 16, 2015—Access Fixtures, a leading purveyor of commercial and sports lighting, is now offering explosion proof LED high bay lighting for hazardous locations. The high-output, explosion-proof LED high bay is an excellent, energy-efficient option for industrial facilities, processing plants, oil drilling rigs, and other potentially dangerous locations. “With a price point below $1,000, you can easily meet Class I, Division 2 safety requirements without going over budget,” says Access Fixtures CEO Steven Rothschild. “This explosion-proof LED high bay lighting will improve lighting levels, virtually eliminate maintenance, and significantly reduce energy consumption.” Class 1, Div 2 locations indicate that ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or liquids will likely be present during abnormal or emergency situations. When dealing with volatile chemicals or open flames, the right equipment can contribute to, or detract from, current safety measures. Traditional fixtures pose the risk of sparking and contain dangerous chemicals such as mercury. They also do not last as long as LED lights. Explosion Proof LED high bay lighting for hazardous locations minimizes risk and reduces cost. The energy efficiency of LEDs will help save money on energy bills. It’s also important to consider the long life of LEDs, rated at 100,000 operating hours, which virtually eliminates maintenance costs. For property managers looking to upgrade their current lighting, such as solvent and cleaning areas, water treatment plants and petrochemical facilities, explosion proof LED high bay lighting is the best choice.

LED Bollards for Path and Patio Lighting Outside Assisted Living Facility in CA   The assisted living facility, located in California, was looking for affordable pathway lighting and patio lighting for the property. They were interested in LED bollards as the most energy-efficient option. A 15w LED bollard uses 87% less energy than an equivalent 100w PSMH bollard light, which makes for a significant savings on the utility bill. LEDs also have a rated operating life of 100,000 hours, virtually eliminating maintenance costs. Though they use significantly fewer watts than traditional fixtures, LED bollards make no sacrifices in lumen output. PSMH fixtures have rapid lumen depreciation, meaning they produce less illumination in exchange for much more wattage. In fact, a common criticism of LED lighting in general is that they can be a little too bright. Concern for Bollard Lights and Eye-Level Glare for Wheelchair Users The brightness of the LED bollards was certainly a concern. The facility proprietors wanted to provide a safe level of lighting for the pathway and patio without blinding any of their disabled residents.
