Explosion Proof Lights

Safe Lights for Challenging Work Environments

When your life depends on using the right product built for the job, Saf-T-Lite hazardous location lights rise to the challenge.


Our explosion proof lights are engineered to withstand heavy impact and are built with non-sparking aluminum alloy guards and tough corrosion resistant material.

The National Electrical Code (NEC) defines hazardous locations as those areas "where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings." Whether you work near flammable dust or flammable vapors, there is a Saf-T-LiteĀ® hazardous location light for you.

A "Class I Location" is created by the presence of flammable gases or vapors in the air in sufficient quantities to be explosive or ignitable. When these materials are found in the atmosphere, a potential for explosion exists if an electrical or other source of ignition is present. Typical Class I locations include:

Class I Locations

  • Petroleum refineries, and gasoline storage and dispensing areas.
  • Dry cleaning plants where vapors from cleaning fluids can be present.
  • Spray finishing areas.
  • Aircraft hangars and fuel servicing areas.
  • Utility gas plants, and operations involving storage and handling of liquified petroleum gas or natural gas.
  • A second type of hazardous location is called "Class II Location". This classification is created by the presence of combustible dust in the air in sufficient quantities to be explosive or ignitable. Typical Class II locations include:

    Class II Locations

    • Grain elevators.
    • Flour and feed mills.
    • Plants that manufacture, use or store magnesium or aluminum powders.
    • Producers of plastics, medicines and fireworks.
    • Producers of starch or candies.
