Petrochemical Lighting

Oil Refinery Lighting

Within the wider Hazardous Area Sector, the Petrochemical industries often have the harshest environments, the largest installations and the longest operating hours. Safety and reliability are valued above all else and equipment is typically far more expensive as a result. Finding cost effective ATEX certified LED lighting can be a challenge.


Proven Benefits

Suitable products for this sector include features such as copper-free aluminium alloy construction, heavy duty powder coating and toughened glass for durability, and a range of wattages and beam angles to allow minimised energy costs while ensuring the optimum lux levels are created.
