LED Sightglass light fittings for hazardous areas, Zone 1 and 21

The sightglass light fittings have been redesigned and foreseen with LED lighting. The advantage of LED displays compared to conventional lighting, are also applicable for hazardous areas. The high light output, the extreme long life span (20,000-40,000 hours), the low power consumption allowing continuous operation and especially the low maintenance costs are the well known advantages of the LED. Of course, this is also important for sightglass light fittings.

Simple and effective mounting frame system of R.STAHL

During installation straight mounting surfaces are not always available. Often only tubular structures and concrete mesh is present, which makes it difficult to mount the Exe enclosures directly.

For these applications R.STAHL has a simple mounting frame system in its product range. The stainless steel mounting plates can be directly mounted on a concrete mesh with a 30mm grid with special clamps (1 1/4", 1 1/2"of 2").

In case there are no walls or other mounting options, special consoles are available for floor mounting. The special consoles can be placed near the installation which is a huge advantage.
