Hazardous Area Lighting - EX Lights For Zone I & Zone II

Portable Hazardous
Location Lights

For areas without a power supply such as the inside of tanks, or remote parts of a large shipyard, high output battery-powered lighting is essential to give full illumination to all areas for inspections, cleaning or painting. Where explosive gases or dusts might be present, your lights must be ATEX or IECEx.

Portable lights need to be easy to carry in one hand. Apart from being easier on the arms, it is also vital for health and safety that workers can hold onto a handrail while carrying a lamp in the other hand.

Every portable light in BME Nitech’s Guardian range weighs 9kg or less, making them one of the very lightest portable floodlights on the market.

Whether it’s painting, construction work or inspections, portable lights without any trailing cables are safer and can be placed precisely where you need them to highlight specific features.

Our portable lights can operate safely in both zone I and zone II.

Uses are not confined to heavy industrial sites, however. A recent BME Nitech project involved the provision of portable lighting for a whisky distillery in Northern Scotland.

Temporary Hazardous
Area Floodlights

For larger areas such as construction sites and which need bright lighting to enable work to continue after darkness falls, our temporary floodlights, suitable for use in zones I and II, are ideal.

Because they include magnetic and clip mounts they can be attached to scaffolding, rails and walls or can use robust floor stands to be placed exactly where they are needed. The ability to link up to ten lights together from one power source enables you to illuminate a large work site with the minimum of dangerous cables and arrange the lights exactly where you need them the most.

ATEX and IECEx certified, our Pioneer LED floodlights are suitable for potentially explosive environments such as petrochemical plants and are used regularly by BAE and the MOD for major shipbuilding projects.

Portable Industrial
Lighting Solutions

Portable lighting enables your team to work at night or in dark areas where there is no power supply. Using handheld lights removes any safety issues caused by trailing cables and lets you place lights exactly where you need them, such as remote work areas or confined spaces and tanks.

To maximise productivity, rechargeable, battery operated lights need to be able to last for a whole shift without loss of brightness. Look for a battery indicator to provide reassurance that the charge is sufficient for the current job.

Portable lights need to be lightweight enough that all staff can carry them in one hand while keeping the other hand on a handrail, complying with safety regulations and manual handling rules.

“We have found the range of equipment to be manufactured to the highest quality, such that the products withstand years of usage, often in the harshest of environments"

-Gavin Caspersz

Ensure that your work lights are impact tested so that they continue to operate after the inevitable knocks or drops that occur on a busy industrial site. Dust resistance and water resistance are also vital attributes if you want your floodlights to last.

Temporary Industrial
Lighting Solutions

Temporary lights enable work to continue on site at all times of day and night throughout the year, so your night shift can operate in bright, daylight conditions.

By linking a number of lights together from one power supply you can illuminate a wide work area safely with the minimum of cables. Bespoke linking lets you arrange the lights exactly as you need them for your site and our experienced team can advise on the exact number of lights that you can connect from your power source. In many circumstances, between 10 and 20 floodlights can be safely linked.

An IP66/67 rated light head is completely dust and water tight, including withstanding powerful water jets and submersion in up to one metre of water. These lights are suitable for use in warehouses, yards, works sites and even washbays providing total peace of mind that the light won’t cut out despite rough treatment in busy, heavy industrial environments.

“We are really satisfied with the professionalism of the BME Nitech company. The quality of its products gives us the confidence to accept new challenges."

-Ignacio Arbeloa, Commercial Director
Luznor Desarollos

A choice of mounting options gives the flexibility to use temporary lights in any size of area. Choose from clip mounting for scaffolding, stairs and walkways, magnets for mounting on equipment, wall mounts or floor stands for large areas without suitable walls.
