Alex Jackson, Wolf’s Managing Director, commented “Safety is, as always, of the utmost importance and we are particularly pleased with the new Floodlite’s safety features.  Wolf’s unique SOVI system lets the operator know if the light is running outside the certified and optimal voltage ranges and the Floodlite is additionally certified safe down to 0 volts.  Also, the independent LED panel and driver system provide failsafe reliability – ensuring operators are never left in the dark.  These safety features, combined with the class leading light output and many other innovative features, make this a very special product and one that everybody at Wolf is rightly proud of.”

The LinkEx WF-300 is manufactured in Wolf’s manufacturing facility in Sheffield and is specifically designed for areas where there’s an increased threat of mechanical damage as the hazardous area floodlight doesn’t harbour dirt and is easy to clean.
