Hazardous Area Lighting

Hazardous area lighting installation and maintenance are essential services provided by F.E.S.

Lighting is a critical aspect of any organisational setup, as it provides essential visibility and illuminates the surroundings. Hazardous areas, in particular, require specialised lighting systems that adhere with The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations, 2002 (DSEAR) to ensure the protection of workers against risks from fire, explosion or similar events that may arise from dangerous substances used or present within the workplace.. Therefore, suitable lighting is a critical and often understated aspect of any organisational setup to ensure that personnel can safely undertake their tasks with clear visibility of their surroundings.

Greater attention is required when designing and installing your lighting should it be within Hazardous Areas, where the risks are increased due to the potential presence of flammable or combustible atmospheres.
