The lamps are held in place by spring loaded sockets and protected by a hinged glass door with a 3/16” tempered glass lens that is secured in place with four turn latches. The housing is constructed of powder coated 18 gauge steel for durability and contains a hinged reflector and ballast tray for easy and safe servicing.

This hazardous location fixture is multi-voltage capable and can be operated on voltages ranging from 120-277 volts AC. Wiring connections are made through ½” threaded access holes. The fixture is designed to be surface mounted. Each surface mounting bracket is attached the ends of the light fixture and allows the operator to adjust the angle of the entire fixture. Pendant and cable mounting options are also available for operators who wish to mount the fixtures away from the ceiling surface. The fixture is IP65 rated water and dust proof and carries ETL and Canada approvals for wet and marine locations. Applications include aircraft maintenance, oil rigs, refineries, solvent and cleaning areas, gas processing plants, chemical manufacturing and waste treatment plants.
