Appleton™ FV Series Nonmetallic Fluorescent Luminaires

FV Series Nonmetallic Fluorescent Luminaires offer unprecedented safety and durability. The lens is rugged enough to endure hose downs, offers single handed lamp and internal control access and automatically engages a unit cut off switch when opened. The internal reflector is hinged for easy access to the control gear. The FV Series stays cool with a T6 rating while operating with a remarkable 94% light producing efficiency. It is ideal for indoor or outdoor use where protection against dirt, water and moisture is necessary and in locations where a high degree of corrosion resistance is required.
