New Safe Area LED Floodlights Offer Instant, Bright Light Over Longer Distances

Lighting solutions specialist Glamox has launched a range of LED floodlights specifically designed for installation and use in safe areas on ships and other marine vessels, as well as general industrial environments.
The floodlights provide instantaneous, high intensity light, as well as offering excellent heat management and low energy consumption.
By using the latest LED technology, the new FL60 Spot beam range of floodlights from Glamox offers a virtually maintenance-free solution for all high intensity lighting requirements. The FL60 Spot beam is the latest addition to the company’s family of safe area floodlights. The FL60 is available as a four-module version and is an excellent choice of luminaire for demanding applications where illumination over longer distances is required. The FL60 operates in ambient temperatures ranging from -30ºC to +45ºC.
Excellent heat management and low energy consumption
Heat management is a decisive factor when developing new LED lighting solutions. The FL60 Spot beam’s LED light source and new integrated driver technology are designed to meet this challenge, providing a long operating life of at least 100,00 hours at 45ºC with 70% light output (L70). The virtually maintenance-free luminaire therefore provides savings in terms of product lifecycle costs. There are also substantial savings in terms of energy consumption. An FL60 floodlight consumes around 75% less energy compared to high-pressure sodium lamps.
The FL60 Spot beam is housed in a seawater-resistant, anodised aluminium housing and is mounted using a 316 stainless steel frame and adjustable mounting bracket. The combination of these materials offers a robust, reliable four-module floodlight that weighs less than 20kg.
Alan Mellows, UK Sales Director at Glamox International comments: “The FL60 Spot beam has the ability to illuminate safe areas over longer distances, providing 200lux at 20 metres. The LED lamp is extremely bright and provides instantaneous lighting, making it the ideal solution for illumination of deck areas on ships and other marine vessels. The LED lamp is instantaneous and faster than an incandescent luminaire.”
The FL60 is manufactured according to the latest marine classification societies and additional VDE and IEC/EN standards.
