Appleton™ ATX™ FE Series Nonmetallic Fluorescent Luminaires

The FE Series increased safety fluorescent fixtures provide added protection for everyday locations, as well as robust environments where corrosive atmospheres, severe weather and detergents prevail. They are protected against the elements via an elastomer gasket that ensures a consistent, durable seal that is hosedown ready. The corrosion-resistant lens, body and hardware mean the FE Series will endure the years. They are available as standard duty or with emergency battery back-up and offer a host of exclusive safety features that make servicing safe and easy.
