Lighting is essential when it comes to reducing eyestrain and keeping work spaces safe for workers, especially in warehouses, manufacturing plants and industrial buildings, tunnels, mines and confined spaces as well as in areas that contain a lot of fumes, gases, dust, dirt and moisture, like underground tunnels and marine docks. Here at Industrial Fans direct, we provide supplemental lighting solutions workstations, loading docks, warehouses, paint booths, utility closets, garages and underground tunnels and mines.
Benefits of Supplemental Lighting
Health, alertness, productivity and safety are all affected by lighting. Dim lighting can contribute to eyestrain and headaches. Low lighting can make employees feel sleepy, lower productivity and even increase the risk of workplace accidents, particularly, and more specifically if your employees work around heavy equipment, equipment with moving parts, chemicals and areas where puddles and standing water are a concern due to the possibility of electrocution. Supplemental lighting in workspaces, factories, warehouses, manufacturing plants and laboratories can help prevent workplace accidents and injuries, while also helping your employees perform their jobs more efficiently and effectively by providing direct light where it is needed.
Explosion Proof Lighting
In some work environments the atmosphere may contain one or more of the following: flammable or explosive chemicals, fumes, dust and exhaust gases which can make using conventional lighting a hazard for the operator as well as the work area. This is due to heat or sparking being created by a standard lighting device as you turn it off and on can cause the gases and/or vapors to ignite, potentially injuring any employee in the area and causing extensive structural damage to your building. Examples of areas with increased risk of fire or explosions due to electrical sparking include paint booths, mechanic’s shops, boat docks, chemical warehouses, marine buildings, oil drilling rigs, gas and oil refineries, mining operations and wood, sugar and textile mills. Our explosion proof area lights, LED string lights, handheld lights and flashlights can add the lighting you need while reducing the risk of fires or explosions in potentially hazardous work areas. We offer explosion proof LED lights with single and multiple heads, and you can purchase them with a variety of electrical cord lengths, including 25, 50, 75 and 100-feet, so that you do not have to risk using one or more extension cords to reach the work area.
Vapor Proof Lighting
Our vapor proof lighting is perfect for indoor and outdoor work areas. These industrial lights are water, dust and moisture tight, which eliminates the risk of electrical shock or malfunctions due to the lights getting dirty or wet from excessive humidity, storms or being dropped in water. Ideal uses for our vapor proof lights include in garages, warehouses, mills, manufacturing plants and utility closets and tunnels where rain, high-humidity, standing water and non-explosive dust and dirt are a health and safety concern. We sell vapor proof lighting with up to 10 LED heads and electrical cords up to 100 feet so that you can add extra lighting right where you need it. Each head also comes with a convenient hook for hanging.
Workspace & Dock Lighting
Workspace lighting can help illuminate dark areas in order to increase productivity, reduce eyestrain and headaches due to poor lighting conditions and reduce workplace injuries that are caused by low levels of lighting. Our portable utility clamp lights, single head dock lights, machine tool lights and utility lights are perfect for adding illumination to loading docks, boat docks, warehouses, machining, non-flammable chemical manufacturing workstations and dimly lit hallways and corridors. Our lights can be easily attached to bases, desks, poles, ceilings and walls via standard tools and mounts. Some of our dock lights even come with movable arms so that the light can be precisely positioned to where you or your employees need it most.
