Harsh Environment LED Lighting

What is Harsh Environment LED Lighting?

Harsh Environment Lighting is a broad category of LED industrial lighting fixtures. They’re designed to work well in areas that are harder on lighting than general areas. There is not one environment or situation that defines “harsh”. It could include

Benefits of LED Lights for Harsh Environments

A harsh environment light is designed to provide years of maintenance-free lighting. No one wants to buy harsh environment outdoor lighting or indoor LED lighting and have them fail in a short period.

They are also significantly more energy efficient than other forms of lighting, like Metal Halide, High-Pressure Sodium, and Fluorescent lighting.

Their light quality and light output are excellent, and bright with low lumen depreciation. This means the bright, quality light will last for years.

Converting to LED will allow you to save energy and reduce your lighting bill from your utility company.

When to Use Harsh Environment LED Lighting

Do you have an environment where explosive materials, such as gas or dust, are present? In concentrations that a spark could create an explosion? Then consider using explosion-proof lights for hazardous locations. Your local government will mandate the use of these lights in such conditions.

Different Types of LED Lights for Harsh Environments

In areas where food is being processed, NSF Food Safe Lights are your best option. In manufacturing areas with high ceilings, use industrial-grade high bay lights. In spaces with high temperatures or extreme temperatures, high-temperature lighting is your best choice (they also work well in extremely cold temperature areas). In parking garages where car exhaust would harm the internal components of light, choose vapor-proof lighting. In offshore or nearshore locations where salt water is present, choose fixtures with a marine-grade finish. Our LED Fixtures are application-specific, so let us know your application and we can match you with the right lighting solution.

What Makes Light Fixtures Durable Enough for Harsh Environments?

It depends on the type of light. For the most part, these lights are very robust. These industrial lighting fixtures have heavier casting, high impact ratings, and special finishes. In the case of explosion-proof fixtures, it’s the lights’ design and engineering that come into play. It keeps explosions created inside the light from causing an explosion. For high-temperature lighting, it uses a heavy-duty heat sink and other design factors to keep them cool.
