Iconic Low & High Bay LED Lighting Solutions
Food processing facilities require lighting fixtures that can withstand rigorous cleaning protocols, contain no toxic materials, and are highly resistant to corrosion. NSF2 Food Zone and Splash Zone are the most appropriate listings for this application – they’re your assurance that there will not be gaps or holes in the fixture that could allow contaminants to enter the processing area from the plenum.
Fixtures in these areas must also resist leakage from the room into the luminaire to prevent bacteria or other contaminants from compromising the area’s environmental integrity – performance assured by the UL/CUL IP65 classification within IEC 60598.
Kenall offers a variety of lighting fixtures for food processing facilities with a choice of LED, linear fluorescent, compact fluorescent, HID, and Quartz Induction sources in housing styles including troffers, wraps, and HID/Induction housings with both surface and recessed mounting options.
While luminance recommendations are highly influenced by the packing methodology and space layout, light levels for industrial packing areas can range from as few as 10 up to 30 and even 50 footcandles. Please refer to the IES Lighting Handbook to identify the recommended luminance levels for the specific visual tasks being performed.
