32 inch glass explosion proof cast aluminum light is a reproduction cast and polished ship light. This design is typical of the explosion proof lights employed in ships’ engine rooms, cargo decks and similar areas. These explosion proof cast aluminum lights were originally designed to allow efficient lighting on LNG or LPG carriers and chemical container ships where explosion proof lighting was essential. Reproduction shown here is smaller scale to suit domestic use as retro style industrial fitting.
They are an industrial style that we think would work well in an industrial themed kitchen, cafe or hotel. Incorporating a 4 inch diameter glass containment tube, they may also provide lighting for food preparation areas i.e., for shatterproof requirement over coffee machines and food prep.
These lights have been polished to a degree, but to a near “perfect surface”. We install high quality (CRI90), (24 volt) low voltage LED strip inside an aluminum profile. The LED can be dimmed via the driver.
These tube lights are made to order largely in our main workshop. When available to back-order is indicated this means they will ship internationally to our US warehouse as required. This will delay shipping by around 10 days.
There are a number of ways to suspend this light fitting. You can choose from chain or cable suspension. Virtually and chain weight will work given that there are two chains and the total weight is just 22 lbs. Cable should be stainless steel with loops made with appropriate ferrules. We can supply both chain or stainless cable. For stainless wire we would recommend 1.6mm 7X7 strand. Photographs show hung with stainless steel and long link zinc plated chain. Select from the addon dropdown which suspension solution you would prefer. If you have a required precise length please select the length closest to required and advise in “order notes” section on the checkout when ordering.
Wiring and globes
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. 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.
An 8 foot length of flex cable in black braid is also supplied as standard but this can be ordered longer if required.
We can include special chain hook ceiling plates, s-Hooks, Carabiners or shackles. We can also supply chain, stainless cable, Thimbles and Ferrules.
Please note these light fittings are repro for decorative use and do not qualify as vapor or explosion proof. Therefore they are not suitable for hazardous applications.
