Hazardous Areas

It may at first seem strange to associate food production with a hazardous environment, but dust produced by the processing of raw ingredients (coffee, tea, flour and spices are typical examples) can create an explosive atmosphere.

Similarly, the processing of oils and fats, and the distillation of alcohol can create fire and explosion hazards. Expert guidance should be sought to specify the degree of protection required which will determine the classification and temperature rating for luminaires. Suitable luminaires can then be selected that match the criteria.

The Three-65 Type 'N' is a self-contained emergency luminaire that can be used as an emergency Exit Sign with a self-adhesive legend kit.
