Inspection Pit Lux Levels

inspection pits

Inspection pits are either classified as hazardous-area or safe-area; therefore an initial consideration is whether the project requires ATEX lighting products.

After this, the design process is relatively similar - considerations include illumination of the underside of the engine, rolling stock, or vehicle, as well as the ground, good uniformity, ease of maintenance and impact resistance of luminaire, emergency escape route lighting, etc. Our team has the low glare LED lights and lighting design experience to support your project.
