General

What Type of Lights Can You Use in a Mine?

We recommend lights that can withstand high temperatures, wet environments and explosive atmospheres. We can provide lights that meet all these requirements.

What Mine Lighting Standards Should You Follow?

The local government will be able to better answer this question for you. They vary from state to state, and country to country. It is important to communicate with them if you are not clear on the local requirements.

Do All LED Mine Lighting Need to Be Explosion Proof?

Not all, there are mining operations that are not explosive environments. Open pit mines, for example, just need strong flood lights and they don’t need to be explosion proof rated.

BEFORE YOU BUY

Are Your LED Mine Lighting MSHA Approved?

Talk with your local government if there are any requirements for MSHA approved fixtures. We have found in most cases that MSHA covers emergency lighting or battery operated. Your best approach is to check what’s required in your area.

What IP Rating Should You Consider in a Mine?

At least IP65 or above. The highest rating is IP69K.

What Lights Should You Use in Areas of the Mine That Reach High Temperatures?

We offer high temperature lights that are good for up to 212F. Our explosion proof fixtures are rated for 140F. Identify what your requirements are and we will recommend the right options.

What Is the Best Fixture to Use for Lighting Up a Mine Shaft?

If you need explosion rated fixtures, we recommend our C1D1 or C1D2 low bays and high bay lights. If explosion proof is not required, then a high powered flood light or high bay might also be a good option. It all depends on the mounting and light level requirements.

What’s the Lowest Lux Level for an Underground Drift Mine?

At least 5 foot candles, or 50 lux. When drilling, mucking and scaling, those areas should be at least 10 foot candles, or 100 lux.

FIXTURES AND FITTINGS

Can LED Mine Lighting Run 24/7?

Yes, but you have to concern yourself about heat. Make sure the fixture’s designed to handle the high temperatures of the mine.

Can the Lights Withstand Constant Vibration from Blasts?

They can, but that all depends on how close they are to the blast zone. Our explosion proof lights are all IK10 impact rated. This is the highest rating available.

How Much Heat Do the LED Mining Lights Produce?

Very little, and when compared to metal halide or high pressure sodium, they produce less heat.

Are the LED Lights Impact Resistant?

Yes, they are. We have lights rated up to IK10, the highest rating there is.
