LED Explosion Proof Lighting, Class 1 Division 1 LED Lighting, High Bay Explosion Proof LED Lights and Class 1, Division 2 LED Lighting fixtures are used in outdoor or indoor applications. “Explosion proof” defined: a term frequently encountered when looking for industrial lighting fixtures for hazardous areas. For over 15 years, LED Pros WorldWide has offered C1 D1 and C1 D2 and Atex / IECEX lights from various explosion proof lighting manufacturers. Choose from a wide assortment of square, round or linear fixtures for your application.
Class 1 LED Hazardous Location Lighting
Class 1 hazardous LED lighting fixtures are housed in enclosures designed to contain any explosion that might occur if hazardous vapors were to enter the area and ignite. These lighting fixtures are also designed to cool and vent the products of this explosion as to prevent the surrounding environment from exploding.
The lighting fixtures used in Class 1 hazardous locations must be able to contain an explosion as well as maintain a surface temperature lower than the ignition temperature of the surrounding hazardous atmosphere.
Class 2 Hazardous Location LED Lighting
Class 2 hazardous LED lighting fixtures are designed to seal out dust. The lighting fixtures are not intended to contain an internal explosion, but rather to eliminate the source of ignition so no explosion can occur within the enclosure. These enclosures are also tested to make sure they do not overheat when totally covered with dust, lint or filings. Summary of Hazardous Locations
“Hazardous Locations”, “Hazardous Areas” and “Explosive Atmospheres”, these terms describe areas where flammable liquids, vapors, gases, or combustible dust are likely to occur in quantities sufficient to cause a fire or explosion, for example; Refinery factories, Oil and gasoline loading docks, Gas stations, Painting manufacture workshop, Pumping stations, Metal Smelting Plant, Mining, Ocean platform, Aerospace, Chemical plant, Vessels, Military, Flour Mill, Distilleries, Power station, Other high humidity, high temperature, dusty locations. As the automation industry of today continues to expand, we will see an increased use of explosion-proof equipment.

In any industrial setting today, there are inherent risks that exist. It is up to you as the business owner or manager to make sure that all employees, visitors, and clients are always as safe as possible no matter what these risks may be. Places like steel mills, mines, gas stations, power stations, military posts, and others may have a more significant potential for explosions to occur because of the high heat in the area or the materials being used or built on-site. Because of this, you need to make sure that you have adequate, safe lighting that can hold up to the strictest of codes and challenging situations. The most reliable choice for you to make is to investigate explosion-proof lighting to light your work areas.
Ratings and Certifications
ATEX is the European certification given to what is commonly called hazard location area lighting. This required rating is for businesses operating in potentially explosive environments, such as those found in industries where flammable gases, vapors, dust, or powders are present. Such as mining, grain storage, fueling stations, oil and gas production, chemical manufacturing, and other sectors. The ratings are defined by Zone Classifications, Examples
Zone 0 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produced vapors are present continuously or for long periods of time under normal operating conditions.
Zone 1 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produced vapors are likely to exist under normal operating conditions.
Zone 2 – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, flammable liquid-produced vapors, or combustible liquid-produced vapors are not likely to exist under normal operating conditions.
Zone 20 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are present continuously or for long periods of time under normal operating conditions.
Zone 21 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are likely to exist occasionally under normal operating conditions.
Zone 22 – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust or ignitable fibers/flyings are not likely to occur under normal operating conditions.
In the US, the most sought-after rating is the Intertek UL 844, covering the use of luminaires in hazardous or classified locations. A UL safety mark means a product has been certified to meet scientific safety, quality, or security standards. This globally recognized rating for hazardous location area light fixtures is most highly regarded in North America.
Class I, Division 1 Location – Ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or liquids:
Class I, Division 2 Location – Volatile flammable liquids or flammable gases or vapors exist, but are normally confined within closed containers;
Class II, Division 1 Location – Ignitable concentrations of combustible dust can exist in the air under normal operating conditions;
Class II, Division 2 Location – Combustible dust is not normally in the air in ignitable concentrations;
Class III, Division 1 Location – A location in which easily ignitable fibers or materials producing combustible flyings are handled, manufactured or used.
Class III, Division 2 Location – A location in which easily ignitable fibers are stored or handled other than in the process of manufacture.
