Marine Lighting

Industrial Lighting Applications for Wet & Marine Environments 

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.
