What are Food Grade LED Lights?

Food processing light fixtures are specifically designed and certified for use in areas of commercial facilities where food is processed and handled. They are commonly also called food-grade LED lights.

LED food processing lights are made with non-toxic materials. They’re designed to be easy to clean as well as prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris on the surface of the light fixture.

Food-safe LED light fixtures tested and certified by the non-profit NSF Organization. This organization’s primary goal is food safety. NSF (National Sanitation Foundation ) is a standard on its own, it is different and separate from the fixtures UL/ETL listing and DLC listing.

Food Processing Lighting That’s Safe for Food Safety

When it comes to food safety, the best option is lights that have NSF certification. There are different types of food-safe lights available. These include round-style hanging fixtures to linear strip NSF fixtures.

What is NSF Rating?

NSF rating is a certification that certifies a light passes the NSF Organization’s test. This test examines a fixture’s ability to work in a food-sanitary environment.

NSF Certification Zones Our Fixtures Cover

Lighting never comes in contact with the food. The only two zones tested are Splash Zones and Non-Food Zones. The third zone, the non-food Zone, does not apply to lighting.

When is NSF Lighting Required?

You need to use NSF-rated lights in commercial food processing environments. The health departments of many municipalities and states have strict guidelines. These guidelines detail when and where you should install these fixtures.

NSF Rating Certifications for our Lights

We do. Call us and we can provide all the documentation you need.

Wash Down Food Grade Light Fixtures

Yes, that is the idea. Food-grade lighting is designed to be able to withstand constant wash down to keep food-safe areas clean. Our lights are corrosion-resistant.

Motion Sensors with Food-Safe Lighting

If you use a motion sensor it also must be NSF rated. You cannot add any motion sensor to an NSF-rated fixture.

Food-Safe LED Lights: Glass or Plastic Lens?

Our food-safe LED fixtures have tempered glass lenses. Our tubular-style linear NSF fixtures have frosted polycarbonate lens covers. You should not have to worry about broken glass issues.

Installation Instructions for our Food Manufacturing Lights

The actual fixtures themselves are easy to install. You should use a qualified electrician. They should be familiar with NSF-rated fixtures. They should also know the rules for connecting lights to junction boxes.

Can I Use a UFO or Vapor Tight Fixture?

No. Unless, of course, they are NSF certified. You should not confuse IP waterproof ratings with NSF certifications. NSF fixtures are indeed IP-rated for wet environments. It is not true that any IP-rated fixture is also NSF-rated.

Hottest Temperature Our Food Processing LED Lighting Operate in

The fixtures we sell operate up to 131F max temperature.

IP69K Food Grade LED Lighting Fixtures

We have IP69K Food Grade Fixtures. This means they can be washed down with high-pressure hot water.

Food-Safe LED Fixture Pendant Mounts

Yes, some of our fixtures have a pendant mount option. Other options include an eye hook and suspended wire mount. More often than not, food factory lighting is either pendant or eye hook mounted because it makes it easier to wash down.
