Product Category: Hazardous Area Lighting | LED Light Fittings

FELED Series Nonmetallic LED Light Fittings manufactured by Appleton ATX provide hazardous area lighting and are easy to install and maintain – LED light fittings are available in standard or an emergency back-up version with built in battery and ATEX and IECEx certifications.

ATX FELED Series of LED light fittings are specified to provide lighting in hazardous area Zone 1 and Zone 2 (Gas) / Zone 21 and Zone 22 (Dust) locations and provide between 2,500 and 7,200 lumens to fit a wide variety of explosive atmosphere lighting applications.

LED light fittings are easily retrofitted to existing fluorescent lighting fixtures in hazardous area locations as they maintain the same look and feel – IP66 Ingress Protection and IK10 Mechanical Protection.

Appleton ATX FELED light fittings (LED type) use the same footprint and mounting accessories as the ATX FE series of fluorescent fittings – saving time, labour and money.

Fluorescent to LED Light Fitting Upgrade

  • Energy Savings – LED light fittings provide far greater lighting efficiency compared to traditional fluorescent lighting fittings
  • Maintenance Savings – fluorescent lamps last an average of 13,000 hours in continuous use. LED light fittings are rated for 60,000 hours and can exceed 200,000 hours depending on ambient temperature
  • Lighting Safety – LED light fittings provide instant on and cold-start capabilities without end-of-life degradation or premature failures due to frequent cycling, with a photobiological safety rating of RG0.
