Date Announced: 11 Feb 2011

Farmingdale, NJ– Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), an innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, announced today that its SafeSite™ Series LED Wallpack Luminaire has achieved Class I, Division 2 certification for use in hazardous locations, including oil platforms, chemical facilities and other potentially explosive environments.

Offering superior energy savings and long-life performance with dramatically less maintenance than traditional solutions for hazardous locations, the SafeSite Wallpack fixture is designed to replace conventional HID, incandescent and fluorescent fixtures.

Available in a variety of color temperatures, including cool, neutral or warm white, the new Wallpack fixture also offers optional wide or oval optical distribution. Specifically designed for easy retrofit to existing wiring, the fixture is ideal for use in stairwells, platforms, exits, walkways, building exteriors, tunnels and other confined or hard-to-access spaces and is available in light grey, black or white finish to match the application.

With its lightweight, low-profile, compact design, the 9.5 lb. Wallpack offers flexible installation options for flush-mount or 30-degree wall mounting brackets or no bracket at all for direct mounting. Additional mounting accessories are available, including stainless steel adjustable brackets and stanchion mounting brackets

“Even under the most extreme conditions, this unit will last up to three times as long as traditional HID fixtures and fluorescent technology,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “Aside from virtually eliminating costly and sometimes dangerous bulb changes, at 73 lumens per watt, it’s also extremely energy efficient for even lower total cost of ownership over the life of the fixture.”

Delivering up to 10 years of operation, the SafeSite’s rugged, solid-state design makes it highly resistant to shock and vibration for greater reliability and reduced maintenance costs over the life of the fixture. Rated for input voltage of 100-277 VAC, the SafeSite LED Wallpack offers high luminous efficacy with 70% lumen maintenance over 60,000 hours. The fixture is available in both 11-watt and 22-watt versions and is completely free of hazardous materials, including mercury, and creates almost no light spill.

In addition to Class I, Div 2, the powder-coated aluminum Wallpack luminaire is certified for ATEX Zone 1, 21 and Zone 2, 22, and carries IP66, IP67, IK04 ratings.

Backed by Dialight’s exclusive five year warranty for continuous operation, the SafeSite LED Wallpack also features instant on/off operation, enabling greater efficiency and an extended lifespan, even in the most demanding applications.
