Hazardous areas are those in which a potential for explosion or fire exists, due to the presence of certain gases, liquid vapors,
combustible dusts or fiber particles suspended in the air.
The National Electrical Code®, NEMA, OSHA, UL, NFPA Life Safety
Standards, as well as State and Local codes, prescribe the use of emergency lighting equipment.
This equipment itself must
not contribute to the ignition of flammable or explosive substances, present in the location. Emergi-lite offers a complete line of
emergency lighting equipment for use in hazardous locations.
