Marine Lighting

Marine applications require lighting equipment that can withstand harsh aqueous and atmospheric saltwater corrosion. Nemalux marine-grade luminaires have the same rugged industrial design as other units, but carry additional corrosion protection specifically for the marine environment.  Nemalux luminaires are compliant with the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) standard and are approved for use in the most demanding exterior lighting marine environments including docks, marine vessels, offshore drilling rigs, platforms and other marine applications. Triple coated powder coating, along with stainless steel mounting hardware help it to resist marine corrosion while advanced optics provide the highest quality illumination.

One of the most outstanding ABS approved luminaires is the GS linear model. The GS’s unique design makes it one of the only linear models able to qualify for the ABS standard. Linear luminaires are notoriously difficult to achieve ABS rating because the different materials used in their construction have different coefficients of thermal expansion. This mismatch in a long body creates gaps which compromise ingress protection. The GS’s unique design prevents these gaps from forming, even with different materials. This has allowed the GS linear to be IP68, 69 and ABS compliant, and be spec’ed into unique marine and underwater locations such as along docks, offshore platforms and walkway/ground lighting. The GS opens up whole new worlds of application. For instance, with the GS, suddenly, underwater fountain illumination is no longer restricted to just spotlights.

Marine Applications Include:

  • Coastal Oil & Gas production facilities, oil rigs, production platforms, crude oil facilities
    • Includes both hazardous location and American Bureau of Shipping approvals
  • Port terminal facilities
    • crane, catwalk, conveyor, walkway and building lighting.

Custom OEM capabilities:
Nemalux is capable of providing special potting services to customers who have extreme encapsulation applications such as submersible lighting applications.


Rigorous design, testing, and refinement produced a fixture that can deliver over 33,000 lumens in a streamlined luminaire.  The AR is 100% field serviceable parts, has a high CRI, and has an energy efficient design.

The AR has five different mounting styles, over 20 optics options, multiple colour temperatures, ability to dim and two input voltage options for maximize flexibility. This provides the opportunity to tailor each fixture to fit a range of applications.

Nemalux AR Series industrial, high lumens, high bay LED luminaire for area lighting - hazardous location class I division 2 (c1d2), marine (UL 1598), Foodsafe (NSF), Dark Sky (IDA) and DLC approved
Nemalux GS Series of Low Profile AC or DC Linear Industrial LED Luminaires is available in 4 Optional Lengths, marine, IP66/67 and hazardous location certified (class I div 2, c1d2)


A unique watertight linear LED luminaire which has the unusual rating of IP68, IP69 and ABS. Extremely durable and water-tight, the GS Series of fixtures are able to withstand the most demanding environments. The GS was designed as a hazardous location, lightweight linear strip luminaire with a projected lifespan of 100,000 hours. It can be mounted in marine and underwater applications that competitors cannot match. It is uniquely suited for providing uniform lighting for offshore platforms and walkways, docks and shipping vessels, as well as underwater submerged applications.


The MR is a unique multi-functional, feature rich light fixture based on our rigorous design, prototyping, testing and refinement process. Using industry leading manufacturing practices, our engineers and industrial designers were able to produce a fixture that not only exceeds the expectations of an HID replacement, but establishes a new benchmark in versatility for industrial LED lighting.
