Effective illumination in mines and hazardous areas is all about one thing: safety first. In areas made hazardous by abnormal conditions including the presence of flammable vapours, gases or combustible dust, specialty lighting is key to the performance of day to day tasks.
Mine sites, industrial areas, chemical processing, grain silos and storage: the areas where zone-specific lighting standards are applicable are broad.
It is therefore important to note two things:
Customers need to be confident that their lighting solution provider delivers products that meet or exceed safety and performance standards and meet safety audit requirements providing functional day-to-day performance
That the quality of those products is such that they will perform to design if or when a crisis hits
