What is Class 1 Div 1 Lighting?

Class 1 Division 1, or C1D1, is a classification of explosion ratings. It’s designed to work in explosive and hazardous environments where ignitable concentrations of flammable combustible vapors, liquids, or gases are always present.

These lights are considered Explosion Proof Hazardous Location Lights.

What is a Class 1 Division 1 Area?

Class 1 Areas are groups. Groups are categorized by the type of material found. The most common groups are:

  • (A) Acetylene
  • (B) Hydrogen
  • (C) Ethylene or propane
  • (D) Propane, butane, methane and benzene.

Note: all of our class 1 div 1 lighting are certified for Groups C and D. Some are certified for Group B. Please check the specifications for each light if you specifically need C1 D1 Group B.

Class 1 Div 1 is the Highest Classification of Explosion Proof Lights

Yes, it is. Class 1 Division 1, or C1D1, is the strictest of all standards. It’s designed for an environment where danger is always present

The Difference Between Class 1 Division 1 and Class 1 Division 2

The main difference is the presence of gas or other explosive materials. C1D1 handles 'always present' dangers. Class 1 Division 2 is for 'sometimes present' environments.

Benefits of Using Class 1 Div 1 LED Lighting

Like other LED lights, explosion-proof fixtures provide the same key benefits.

  • Energy saving
  • Reduced maintenance
  • Improved quality of light
  • Long Lifespan

They also meet the certification requirements needed in Class 1 Div 1 applications. They will provide a safe lighting environment and work well in a hazardous location requiring repair or maintenance operations.

Typical Lifetimes of LED Class 1 Div 1 Light Fixtures

These c1d1 lighting fixtures are rated to run for a very long time. Running these lights for 12 hours a day, 365 days a year – you can expect 10+ years of life from them without maintenance, bulb, or ballast changes.

What Extra Items Do You Need to Install Class 1 Div 1 LED Lighting?

Everything this light’s connected to inside the room must also be Class 1 Division 1 rated. There are some accessories available. But they’re limited due to the special nature of this fixture.

You may also need to supply a power cord. Everything inside the C1 D1 area needs to also be Class 1 Division 1 rated. That includes the conduit, junction boxes, and switches.

What are Class 1 Div 1 LED Lighting Made Of?

These fixtures are high-impact, heavy aluminum frames with thick tempered glass.

Each fixture has an impact rating of IK10 – the highest impact rating available.

Can You Hard Wire LED Lights in Class 1 Div 1 Areas?

Yes, work with a qualified electrician who is certified in this type of installation. And, there can not be any exposed wires.

Installing Class 1 Div 1 LED Lights

Caution: Never install C1D1 LED lights on your own (unless you are a qualified electrician). Make sure to always hire an experienced and qualified electrician who understands class 1 division 1 lighting requirements to do the job for you.

Certifications or Standards That Class 1 Division 1 LED Lights Must Meet

All the Class 1 Division 1 light fixtures on this page meet and pass the UL844 standard for explosion-proof lighting and have been tested to that standard.

Is Class 1 Div 1 the Same as Atex Classifications?

Class 1 Division 1 is a UL Classification of explosion-proof lighting used in North America. ATEX is a different standard not used in this country. UL-rated and tested for C1D1 lights do not always qualify for ATEX certification and vice versa.

In other words, a similar ATEX classification to C1D1 does not mean the light has met UL standards for class 1 div 1 lighting.

Industrial Applications for Class 1 Division Lighting

  • Oil and Gas Industry – petroleum refineries, oil platforms, drilling rigs
  • Chemical Manufacturing
  • Ocean, Marine, and Aerospace Industries
  • Food and Alcohol Production, Distilleries
  • Electrical Power Generation Industry (Natural Gas)
  • Waste Treatment Facilities and Plants
  • Metal Treatment and Processing

Is Class 1 Div 1 LED Lighting Intrinsically Safe?

It can be. But there’s a difference between explosion-proof and intrinsically safe lighting.

Explosion-proof fixtures design handles the case an explosion starts inside the fixture. The explosion would channel and cool inside the fixture. So, when it comes to the point of escaping the fixture, it does not result in an explosion in that environment.

Intrinsically safe lights are different. They’re designed in such a way that they are not capable of creating an explosion or spark. Most low-voltage battery-operated lights designed for explosion-proof areas are intrinsically safe (flash lights).
