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 oil & gas, chemical, petrochemical, energy and heavy industry sectors.
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 up to 175 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 explosion proof luminaires provide 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.
Our luminaires comply with ATEX – IECEX standards, as well as CE, ROHS and REACH 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.
ZALUX luminaires are available for ATEX Zone 1 and ATEX Zone 2 and are resistant 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.
Why ZALUX is your reliable partner for safe luminaires suitable for Ex-zones?
40 years experience
Specialized in the development and manufacturing in Europe of luminaires with high protection ratings. Our solutions have been installed in heavy industries, cold storages, chemical plants or outdoor car parks in more than 70 countries.
We are a registered vendor in some major EPC companies and promote our products to oil and gas end users globally. Our processes and products comply with the strict requirements of the most demanding industries and ATEX installations.
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.
Our experienced team cares for the continuos improvement of our luminaires and is at your disposal to help you find the appropriate lighting solution for each project.
What can you expect from our explosionproof LED luminaires?
It is our top priority, especially for ATEX luminaires.
Compliance with electrical, temperature or resistance tests, some of which are carried out in our state-of-the-art laboratories, together with fully sealed IP69K products, guarantee that Ex-certified luminaires are the right solution for hazardous areas where strict ATEX specifications must be met.
We choose the appropriate high quality materials for each application, from impact resistant PMMA, borosilicate glass or 316L stainless steel, among others, to offer maximum robustness.
ATEX luminaires are used during long times in challenging locations, so they offer a great resistance to acids, sulphur or salty environments.
Our luminaires offer a good thermal management, allowing a long lifetime up to 100,000 hours. Together with the low failure rate of electrical components and the high energy efficiency, it implies nearly zero maintenance while keeping lighting quality, which represents huge savings.
Our commitment to quality is ensured by the 5 years guarantee on our ATEX luminaires.
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 (constant presence), ATEX Zone 1 (likely presence) and ATEX Zone 2 (seldom presence).
What is an explosive atmosphere?
An explosive atmosphere (ATEX) is defined as the mixture of air, under normal atmospheric conditions, with flammable substances in the form of gases, vapors, mists or dusts, in which, after an ignition, the combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture.
Where can it be formed?
An explosive atmosphere can be formed in environments where processes involve handling, processing or storing flammable liquids or combustible dusts, as well as in areas where gases are formed or accumulated which, because of their temperature or condition, can cause explosions.
|Zones||Description||Duration of hazardous atmosphere|
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.
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.
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.
