"One of the first explosion proof LED fixtures to come to market, the UltraLux LED canopy fixture boasts a Class I & II, Div. II rating and is ideal for most hazardous locations," commented Alex Orr, VP of Sales at EverLast Lighting.

The explosion proof canopy fixture can be used in applications such as cold storage, food and beverage facilities, petroleum and chemical based facilities, car washes, parking structures, and alternative hazardous locations.

"The largest advantage that the ULLED has is that it has the ability to be installed in a wide variety of applications ranging from stairwells and parking garages to hazardous locations; including petrochemical, granaries, and pulp and paper mills," explained Orr.

The LED explosion proof fixture comes in 42 and 60 watt versions, and qualifies as a Class I, Division 2 with Groups A through D fixture. It also listed as Class II, Division 2 with Groups F, and G. ETL listed to UL standards UL 844, CSA C22.2 No. 137-M1981, and UL 1598 & CSA C22.2 No. 250.0-08. The housing features a closed cell silicone gasket with built in heat sink fins that helps keep the fixture running at optimum temperatures providing an ingress protection rating of sixty-six.

"The hazardous fixture has a polycarbonate lens that is used to reduce glare of the fixture, and also can withstand force. The lens is ribbed for added ruggedness, and also prismatic for optimal distribution and diffusion," explained Ralph Hubbs, Senior Design Engineer at EverLast® Lighting, Inc. "It features a cast aluminum housing equipped with a knockout option on each end and top center of housing for easy wiring options."

UltraLux LED light fixtures are 60% more energy efficient than metal halides and last up to 50,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for years. The explosion proof canopy fixtures provide a clean, white light due to the high CCT of the 5000 kelvin LEDs. The fixtures also feature instant on/off operation that is critical in most hazardous locations.

The 2′ linear platform fixture is also available in a standard option boasting either an acrylic, polycarbonate, or glass lens and varies in wattage up to 100.
