Appleton™ FD Hazardous Locations Luminaires

FD Series enclosed and gasketed luminaires are designed for use in hazardous locations defined by the National Electrical Code as Class I, Division 2 and Class I, Zone 2. These nonmetallic fluorescent fixtures are manufactured of high-impact fiberglass reinforced polyester making them ideal for areas where high humidity or water vapor is present.


  • Typical applications include oil refineries, petrochemical facilities, pulp and paper mills, food-processing plants, warehouses, underground tunnels and general manufacturing facilities
  • Fixtures are available with ballasts to support T12 and T8 lamps for nearly all U.S. and foreign voltage and frequency combinations
  • Low operating costs provide more lumens per Watt than incandescent fixtures
  • Housing is smooth, seamless, one-piece injection molded. A compressible, one-piece, non-thixotropic polyol gasket is bonded to the housing around the entire perimeter. It forms a continuous tight seal with the lens to keep out dirt, vapor and moisture
  • Lens comes in high-impact polycarbonate plastic or impact-resistant acrylic
  • Enclosure is rated at IP65 (using polycarbonate lens), dust-proof and protected against water spray
  • Fixtures are washable, non-conductive and corrosion-resistant
  • Lens is securely clamped to fixture using six captive corrosion-proof molded celcon tension latches. Lens is impact-resistant acrylic to protect lamps against breakage, and protect work area from broken lamp glass
  • Electrical components are mounted on a metallic wireway. Reflector is supported by internal safety springs to simplify installation and servicing
  • Optional fusing protects circuitry against occasional line voltage spikes
  • FD fixtures are available with 1/2″ NPT entries
