LED Lighting for Metals and Mining Applications

Nov 9, 2020, 00:03 AM by April Fetz | Marketing Coordinator, Kirby Risk Electrical Supply

Lighting is of critical importance in Metals and Mining applications to maximize both safety and productivity. These sites are among the most dangerous to work in due to extremely harsh conditions and explosive environments. It is without question that the lighting must be able to withstand combustible atmospheres and prevent explosions, while also providing clear illumination for workers to perform tasks safely. For this reason, and the fact that workers can struggle with fatigue when operating complicated, specialized equipment for long periods of time, United Steelworkers recommends bright white lighting.

Kirby Risk is proud to carry Dialight’s best-in-class industrial LED lighting solutions. Dialight’s fixtures have a hazardous range of UL 844 certified and are engineered to withstand the high heat, chemical vapors and dust in combustible and explosive environments. Their superior quality and clarity can dramatically improve visibility to reduce the instances of workplace accidents. What’s more, their industry-leading 10-year warranty on most models virtually eliminates burdensome maintenance over the lifespan of the fixture, allowing you to focus on production.
