Businesses and individuals can face many challenges when choosing ideal lighting for wet atmospheres. Vapor tight and vapor proof lighting fixtures are specially designed to not only to provide protection and reliability for any space, but to save energy as well. These fixtures are suitable to keep moisture and vapors from entering inside the fixture at any time.
Energy-efficient vapor tight LED fixtures are built for powerful lighting in harsh environments, protecting the light source from dust, dirt, and moisture. The durable construction of the fixture features a full metal fixture liner, which is placed inside of a reinforced fiberglass housing with a high impact diffuser. With new generation LEDs (available in 35-50K) and drivers (0-10V), these fixtures are designed to replace less-efficient fluorescent strip lights in interior and exterior locations such as car washes, airports, tunnels, parking garages, and other maintenance areas. They can be surface or chain mounted, are offered in 2 ft. and 4 ft. sizes with 30 and 50 wattages, and wet location rated.
Vapor tight fixtures are not to be confused with vapor proof fixtures. Vapor proof LED fixtures are designed to replace incandescent and CFL fixtures with high-quality, long-lasting illumination over doorways, scaffolding, construction sites, fire hydrants and emergency call stations. They protect the lighting source from hazards such as corrosive fumes, non-combustible dusts, moisture, non-explosive vapors and gases as well.
