You Cannot Afford Cheap Lights.”


Certified hazardous area-safe portable lights are essential tools for workers in explosive hazardous environments. Hence, it is crucial to ensure they are fully certified to the latest ATEX and IECEx standards by reputable certification bodies such as UL or Intertek. Nightstick designs and engineers’ products that eliminate potential sparks or heat that could ignite flammable gases, dust, or fibers present in the atmosphere.  

Usually, suppliers promote inexpensive, uncertified lights, falling short of the required standards for working in explosive atmospheres. Selecting correctly certified products should always come before costs. Certified lights may be more expensive, but they are worth the investment to ensure the safety of workers and the facilities where they work.

The Nightstick XPR-5584GMX dual-light lantern is an excellent example of a quality, ATEX/IECEx Zone 0 certified light that helps prevent slips, trips, and falls. Dual-light torches typically have two beams of light, one for close-up work and one for distance. This eliminates the need to switch between different types of lights and reduces the risk of tripping or slipping, as workers can see obstacles in their path.

In conclusion, investing in a correctly certified, intrinsically safe portable light is crucial to ensure the safety of workers in explosive environments. Quality and certification should always be prioritized over cost.

By prioritizing safety, workers can perform their duties knowing they are truly protected. When Life Depends on LightTM, choose Nightstick! Visit for more information or call us at 1-469-326-9400.
