Do Warehouses Have To Install Explosion-Proof Lights

Warehouse lighting does not necessarily require explosion-proof lights. The decision to use explosion-proof lights mainly depends on whether the warehouse stores flammable and explosive goods. From a safety perspective, such goods should be stored in specialized warehouses with dedicated supervision and required safety distances, and not be placed alongside regular goods.

Choosing the right lighting fixtures is a crucial barrier to safety within the warehouse, ensuring the correct use of lights not only reduces the incidence of accidents but also minimizes losses and ensures a safe environment for the surrounding area.

1. Energy Efficiency:

Larger warehouses and workshops opt for LED explosion-proof lights, saving limited global resources on a broader scale and electricity costs on a personal level.

2. Durability:

Modern LED explosion-proof lights are more durable than metal halide and energy-saving lights, boasting an average lifespan of 7 years. This durability requires quality beads and power sources, much like how the brand of cigarettes varies in price and taste.

3. Safety:

A concern for everyone, previously people used energy-saving lights or simple lighting solutions without incidents over the long term. However, under inspections by departments like fire services, such bulbs are prohibited in flammable and explosive warehouses and workshops.

4. Peace of Mind:

Many users of energy-saving light sources report failures within two months of use. A commonality among them is using an explosion-proof light casing with energy-saving or metal halide light sources – both considered third-generation sources. In contrast, LEDs represent the fourth generation, designed to overcome the drawbacks of the third, such as high heat, high electricity consumption, and short lifespan. The well-sealed casing of explosion-proof lights causes heat to accumulate, leading to failures. In comparison, LED, known as a cold light source, emits 40% less heat than energy-saving lights.

If replacement in high workshops is a monthly task, it becomes a tedious and disruptive affair, affecting productivity and daily operations despite the low cost of replacements.
