Rail Yards & Intermodal Shipping Facilities

Upgrading high-mast, area, and maintenance shop lights for Rail Yards and Intermodal Shipping Facilities require adherence to industry-specific guidelines to ensure safe and efficient operation during difficult weather and environmental conditions. Over the last decade, Nemalux has delivered many successful projects throughout Canada, replacing existing high-mast towers complete with lights, high-bay lights for maintenance shops, illuminating walkways, localized lighting for switches, train inspection areas as well as supporting the design and implementation of the entire lighting package for train loading terminals to transport Alberta crude to international markets.

Problem to Solve

  • Poor Light Quality for Operations, Safety, and Security
  • Complexity of Facility Upgrades

How we solve the problem(s) uniquely:

  1. Nemalux-Specific Fixture Design
    • High-pressure die-cast aluminum housing with marine grade alloy, designed to safeguard power supply and diodes from overheating.
    • Triple-layer, best-available, powder coat finish.
    • Polycarbonate lenses seal the enclosure to withstand direct impact, extreme vibration, and corrosive materials.
    • Nemalux Equalization Valve prevents internal condensation accumulation while maintaining an IP66/67 seal and hazardous location ratings.
  1. Higher Performing Optics
  • 10+ Optic options that deliver results on-site
  • Lumens are delivered in distribution patterns that save cost
  1. Mounting Options
    • Nemalux mounting brackets are over-designed to prevent stress fractures and subsequent failures.
    • Stainless steel fasteners are secured in place with thread locker to prevent loosening while allowing access for future upgrades.
    • Mounts are designed so that fixtures can be mounted on wooden or metal structures.
    • Customized solutions can be created for your site’s requirements.
  1. Permanent Install and Portable Lighting Options
    • MR, XR, AR, ZLM etc. (permanent) or LS, BL (portable)
  1. Dark Sky Compliance
    • Nemalux products have been verified as Dark Sky Compliant which ensures that light trespass to neighboring properties and sensitive environments is mitigated.
