Explosion proof lighting

ZALUX is your partner for explosion proof LED luminaires certified for use in Ex-Zones according to ATEX and IECEX directives.

We specialise in the development and manufacturing of durable luminaires with high protection ratings for extreme conditions in hazardous areas in chemical, oil & gas or heavy industries.

Oil & Gas ATEX lighting

Our ATEX lighting solutions are reliable, safe and sustainable. For offshore oil & gas platforms or onshore refineries, we offer you our 40 years of experience in producing protected luminaires. Our ranges are ideal for both upstream and downstream applications.

Petrochemical ATEX lighting

Our luminaires incorporate the latest LED lighting technology and are one of the most efficient solutions for petrochemical plants. With efficiency of around 160 lm/W and combined with intelligent controls, you can save up to 80% in operational costs compared with traditional lighting technology, creating a more sustainable solution.

Upstream and downstream lighting solutions​

As well as a practical, our ATEX lighting provides a sustainable solution for hazardous areas in Upstream and Downstream market.

Our knowledge of lighting means you will get superior lighting quality to improve working environments in addition to meeting HSE requirements.

ATEX guidelines

Our luminaires comply with ATEX – IECEX standards, as well as CE and ROHS marks.

Their quality is the result of reliable processes and consistent testing in our factories in Zaragoza, Spain.

ATEX lighting for Zone 1 & Zone 2

Our lighting solutions are designed for installation in some of the harshest environments on the planet.

Our luminaires are available for ATEX Zone 1 and ATEX Zone 2 and resistance to corrosion, so they are also suitable for marine applications in offshore areas.

Take a look at our latest STRONGEX 2 range for the ultimate robustness and resistance against impacts, chemical agents and extreme environmental conditions.

ATEX zone classification

Luminaires used in potentially explosive atmospheres must meet the strict requirements of the ATEX and IECEX Directives. Depending on the explosion risk, areas are divided into ATEX zone 0 (permanent presence), ATEX Zone 1 (probable presence) and ATEX Zone 2 (unlikely presence).

Group Zones Description Duration of hazardous atmosphere
II
0 / 20
Area in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of flammable substances in the shape of gas, vapor or mist, is continuously present, or it is foreseen to be present during long periods.
Constant
IIB
1 / 21
Area in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is likely to occur in normal operation.
Likely
IIC
2 / 22
Area in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapor or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.
