Future Lighting Solutions and Rig-A-Lite collaborate to design explosion-proof LED fixtures

April 2, 2013
Date Announced: 02 Apr 2013 MONTREAL, CANADA (April 2, 2013) – Future Lighting Solutions is pleased to announce the successful completion of a project together with Rig-A-Lite, in designing the new explosion proof XP LED fixture series for hazardous and explosive environments.Available in 2’ and 4’ lengths, each with multiple lumen packages, the XP LED series is ideal for onshore and offshore drilling rigs, refineries, chemical plants, wastewater treatment facilities, paint booths, and other areas requiring illumination and protection from explosive gases and compounds, extreme temperatures, corrosive elements, and other severe and hazardous location challenges. These versatile lighting fixtures are also approved for use in areas where salt water spray and corrosive chemicals are present.By collaborating with Future Lighting Solutions, Rig-A-Lite was able to leverage technical expertise, local support, world class supply chain solutions and reputable brand name quality for their design. The XP LED fixtures use Philips Fortimo LED line one row boards and Philips Advance drivers, which provides significant energy savings by delivering 78% more lumens per watt, and three times the system life (60,000 hours) when compared to a linear fluorescent T5HO fixture.Each XP series fixture is individually tested for functional and dielectrical strength at the factory to assure quality and reliability, and arrives assembled including reflectors, thus reducing installation time and cost.For more information on the XP LED series, as well as a complete listing of LED products and more information about Future Lighting Solutions, visit booth 2525 or Rig-A-Lite booth 661 at this year’s LightFair International, April 23 to 25 in Philadelphia.About AZZ | R-A-L Rig-A-Lite is a wholly owned subsidiary of AZZ Incorporated.
