POWER-LITE LED Battens - Industrial Lighting

IP rated LED battens are becoming increasingly popular in commercial and industrial applications. But what are they and where can they be used? In this blog post, we’ll answer those questions and more.

IP Rates Battens: An Introduction

An IP rated LED batten is a linear lighting fixture that is encased in a housing that has been tested to protect against ingress of dust and water. The “IP” in IP rated refers to the International Protection Rating, which is a standard used to classify the degrees of protection provided by an enclosure.

The most common IP rating for LED battens is IP65, which means the fixture is protected against low pressure water jets from any direction and dust ingress. This makes IP65 rated LED battens perfect for use in wet or dusty environments such as parking garages, car washes, and factory floors.

IP Rated LED Batten Advantages

There are several advantages to using IP rated LED battens over traditional fluorescent fixtures. First, LEDs are much more energy efficient than fluorescent tubes, so you’ll save money on your energy bills. Second, LEDs produce very little heat, so they won’t add to the ambient temperature in your workspace. Finally, LEDs have a much longer lifespan than fluorescent tubes, so you won’t have to replace them as often.

How to Install IP Rated LED Battens

Installing IP rated LED battens is similar to installing any other type of linear lighting fixture. First, you’ll need to mount the fixture using the appropriate hardware. Next, you’ll need to wire the fixture according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Finally, you’ll need to connect the fixture to a power source.
