1000 mm Vintage glass explosion proof cast aluminium light is a restored and polished ship light previously employed in ships’ engine rooms, cargo decks and similar areas. This 1000 mm Vintage glass explosion proof cast aluminium light was designed to allow efficient lighting on LNG or LPG carriers and chemical container ships where explosion proof lighting is essential. Built in the 1970’s, these light fittings are extremely heavy duty weighing around 14kg each.
They are ridiculously over engineered for the purpose we now see them being used for, but they are an industrial style that we think would work well in an industrial themed cafe or hotel. Incorporating a very thick 130mm wide glass containment tube, they may also provide lighting for food preparation areas i.e., shatterproof.
These lights have been stripped of their original paint and then polished to a degree, but not to a “perfect surface”. We ensure all components are serviceable, but they will show signs of wear consistent with their age. The original vapour containment system and ballast for the fluorescent tubes are removed and the light fitting is then retro-fitted with high quality (CRI90), low voltage LED strip inside an aluminium profile. The LED can be dimmed via the driver.
Wiring and driver
The driver location can be concealed in the ceiling space or surface mounted. All new wiring is completed ready to be installed by your electrician. We supply chain suspension when installed as a pendant. However, you may prefer to hard mount it to a ceiling or to a wall vertically.
Choose between 240V and 120V to suit your Country voltage. For US and Canada, UL listed components are used but the light fitting itself is not UL listed.
TRIAC Dimming is compatible with most mains-connected trailing or leading edge dimmers. 1-10V dimming can be used with any 1-10V dimmer or other systems such as DALI.
Please note these light fittings are refurbished and no longer qualify as vapour or explosion proof. Therefore they are not suitable for hazardous applications.
