Larson Electronics has expanded its range of industrial-grade lighting equipment with a new fluorescent fixture designed for wet areas and salt-water marine environments.

The Class 1 Division 2 HALP-48-2L-NSIL hazardous-area fluorescent light fixture has a T4C temperature rating and is designed for use in wet environments where corrosion resistance is critical to equipment longevity and safety.

Features and Specs

The fixture is constructed of non-corrosive materials, including polyester housing reinforced with glass fiber; a poured-in neoprene gasket for reliable sealing; and an impact-resistant acrylic diffuser, the company reports.

The polyester housing is reinforced with glass fiber and features a poured-in neoprene gasket for sealing.

Eight corrosion-resistant plastic latches secure the lamp cover to the housing and provide a lock against the seal to prevent drips and water intrusion. Flange-type stainless-steel mounts at each end allow the fixture to be secured to any surface. A pendant mount option allows hanging the fixture from a ceiling.

“Although silicone gaskets are high heat resistant, the silicone is attacked and broken down by certain chemicals,” said Rob Bresnahan, of Larson Electronics.

“By incorporating a neoprene gasket on this fixture, it is resistant to moderate chemicals and acids, as well as oils, fats, greases, and solvents.”
