To sustain high levels of safety and efficiency in areas of darkness and or poor artificial lighting, sourcing reliable portable EX lighting is crucial for operators’ effectiveness. (Read More)

Sourcing safe and reliable ATEX lighting whilst working in hazardous environments must be addressed at the project planning stage as this type of equipment can radically improve safety whilst potentially saving lives. Efficient, high visibility levels can enable potential hazards to be spotted before they can become dangerous and reduce the likelihood of project delays. All lighting equipment used in hazardous and confined spaces needs to be suitable for use in extreme temperatures and capable of withstanding adverse conditions, while maintaining efficiency.
SA Equip offer a comprehensive range of ATEX & IECEx certified lighting designed for years of constant use in the most demanding environments. Utilising advanced LED technology, SA Equip EX lighting products provide enhanced illumination levels, widespread light output and cost-savings. Available with a variety of mounting options enables increased control of lighting angles and positioning for use in a variety of hazardous work environments including tank cleaning, confined space entry and maintenance activities.

In many confined space projects workers only, light source will be a head torch. If this is the case, ensuring the equipment it is fit for purpose is essential to maintain safe working conditions. The ability to work hands-free is extremely important and can help workers cope better in already restricted space. The Zone 0 EX600 LED headtorch from SA Equip is designed to be tough, compact and comfortable. The use of high impact resistant materials provide reliability for demanding conditions. Also, the lightweight and ergonomic design delivers high quality light output for maintenance and inspection jobs, rope access and confined space entry. With two light output settings and simple push button operation, users can easily select the required lumen output based on their applications. It operates at a high level of brightness with a 200-lumen light output combined with a long run-time.

Head torches need to provide a high level of brightness, long-run time and clear output for challenging tasks in confined and hazardous environments. However, in certain scenarios a stronger spread of light is required, this is where portable task lighting can play an integral role. SA Equip offers a powerful, rechargeable task light which provides a light output of 600 lux at 1m and can be securely fastened to technicians using a body holster enabling hands free operation.
