Larson Electronics Releases A Four Foot Explosion Proof LED Light Fixture Approved For Paint Booths

KEMP, TEXAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Leading supplier of industrial lighting equipment Larson Electronics has announced the release of an explosion proof four lamp LED light fixture that is approved for paint spray booths. The EPL-48-4L-LED provides improved output and durability over comparable fluorescent fixtures, but offers a more budget friendly price tag without compromising quality or safety.

The EPL-48-4L-LED is an ideal lighting solution for areas where flammable petrochemical vapors and pulverized dust exist. This four foot fixture is ideal for operators seeking a top quality explosion proof light that will reduce operating costs, improve lighting quality and reduce downtime incurred from frequent servicing intervals. This fixture is lighter in weight, has a slimmer profile and produces more light than traditional explosion proof fluorescent fixtures.

The LED bulbs used in this fixture are our new second generation LED T series 24 watt lamps which produce 15% more light than a T8 configuration and are rated at 50,000 hours of service life. The solid state design of the LED lamps and integral spring loaded end sockets give this fixture superior resistance to damage from vibrations and extremes in temperature as well as a lamp service life over twice that of standard T8 bulbs. This fixture is multi-voltage capable and works on 120-277 volts AC. These fixtures are standard end mounted via unistrut. The unistrut is attached to our standard L-bracket mounts which can be adjusted to create angle mounts. A single through bolt can be used to secure the light to the surface. A single junction box at one end of the light is provided for the electrical connection.

“We have eliminated the ballast box that is normally associated with fluorescent fixtures which reduces the overall weight of this unit,” Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com said. “The maintenance of this fixture is simplified with interchangeable screw on end caps and O ring seals which allows all relamping to be done from one end of the fixture.”

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of explosion proof work lights, hazardous location lights, and power distribution panels.
