Lighting for Fuel and Chemical Stores

Lighting Fuel and Chemical Stores requires diligence; lights must provide sufficient coverage to permit vehicle loading and unloading of Hazardous Substances while also providing resistance against hazardous atmospheric conditions and adhering to applicable on-site safety regulations.

FUEL & CHEMICAL STORE LUX LEVELS

How can Kellwood Lighting help?

  • Robust Light Fittings - our fuel and chemical store lights are housed in robust enclosures with high IK (impact) ratings.
  • Low Profile Lights - slim luminaires (without compromising on thermal performance) maximises head-room within the store.
  • Emergency Lighting - we can provide emergency lighting solutions for fuel and chemical stores, as well as general lighting solutions.
  • Energy Saving - High efficiency LED light engines minimise energy consumption, and electricity bills.
  • Lighting Design - our lighting design team have the knowledge and experience to provide a multi-storey car park lighting scheme to meet SLL (CIBSE) requirements.
  • Smart Controls - optional smart controls can provide further energy savings through integrated microwave sensors.

Please refer to our Hazardous Areas page for information relating to lighting other areas including tank farms, distilleries, and paint shops.
