Intrinsically Safe Lights
Safety Rated and Intrinsically Safe Flashlights
In some working environments, lights are needed that can be safely operated when explosive gases, liquids, dusts, or fibers are present. To put it simply, flashlights that are safety certified are designed in such a way that they will not be a source of ignition in hazardous environments.
Certification is divided into Divisions, Classes and Groups - check the table below for a full explanation of these concepts.
- DIVISION 1 : Hazard Likely". This is a location where an ignitable concentration of flammable material is present under normal operation conditions.
- DIVISION 2 : "Hazard Not Likely". This is a location where an ignitable concentration of flammable material is present under abnormal conditions, but where a fire or explosion could occur.
This rating is further broken down into Classes, which depend on the type of flammable material the flashlight might encounter.
- CLASS 1 : Flammable gases, vapors, and liquids - for instance petroleum refineries, utility gas plants, gasoline storage facilities etc.
- CLASS 2 : Combustible dusts - for example grain elevators, coal preparation plants, etc.
- CLASS 3 : Ignitable fibers and flyings - for instance textile mills or plants that create sawdust
All intrinsically safe lights are rated Class 1, Division 1. All of UK's Intrinsically Safe lights are rated Division 1, and Class 1,2,3.
Read more about all the certified lights below, or see the full list of intrinsically safe products.
Safety ratings also include a temperature rating, split in to classes T1 - T6. The temperature codes indicate the maximum surface area temperature of the equipment that can come into contact with hazardous materials. These only apply to Class 1 and Class 2 locations.
3AA and 4AA eLED Work Lights
These powerful intrinsically safe rated flashlights match powerful performance with sleek design. Extremely bright for their light weight and small size, they are some of the most popular work lights in demanding environments. Both the 3AA eLED and 4AA eLED are available with front or tail switches, and mounts for attaching to any helmet or hardhat for hands- free performance.
The AA lights are waterproof and particularly suitable to cold environments thanks to UK's celebrated Thermal Recovery System, which recycles heat generated by the LED to warm the batteries for improved performance.
