Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2008 -- Explosion proof lights go by many names, including hazardous location lights (or hazlo lights), confined space lights, class lights or intrinsically safe lights. Regardless of the term used, these lights are made from non-sparking materials and put off nominal heat. Typically, these lights are made from heavy duty materials, including heavy gauge housings, aluminum brackets and extra thick lenses. The cords associated with these lights are typically SOOW rated and are resistant to chemicals, abrasives and water.
Finally, the plugs may be rated for explosion proof environments as well, although most operators will connect their lights to the power source outside the hazardous location area. Operators in the petrochemical industry, oilfields, manufacturing plants, ship yards, paint spray booths, grain storage areas and fuel tanks seek out explosion proof lights in order to meet OSHA specifications and protect their employees from potential explosions related to the ignition of flammable vapors and/or dust particles.
Magnalight.com recently added more items to its explosion proof lights range, including handheld fluorescent lights, surface mounted fluorescent lights for paint spray booths, handheld HID lights for inspecting tanks and vessels and explosion proof headlights for hands free operation. Combined with it's existing range of quad pod mount and cart mount explosion proof light fixtures, like the 23-7/8 diameter, 400 watt metal halide, tank cleaning cart light, Larson Electronics' online presence is rapidly becoming a one stop shop of the manufacturers, environmental companies, oilfield, paint spray booths and oil rig operators around the world.
