What are triproof lights meaning?

Waterproof, dustproof, and corrosion proof is the most symbol of the led tri proof light( also called vapor tight/proof light or waterproof light). In order to reached the protection requirements of the fixtures, special anti-oxidation and anti-corrosion materials and silicone sealing ring are used. The maximum sealing of the luminaire without affecting the lighting.

What are the advantages of using tri proof light?

  • Low hazard, no UV or infrared rays, creating a healthy working environment
  • Long lifespan, through a series of aging tests, the life expectancy can reach >54,000hrs.
  • Energy-saving, led tri proof light can save 85% energy compared to traditional lamps.
  • Less maintenance, the fixtures are highly resistant to heavy impact, specially designed to withstand harsh conditions and require little maintenance
  • No flicker, high-quality power supply stabilizes current and prevents the stroboscopic phenomenon
  • Protect the environment, LEDs light source, that is, energy-saving and environmental protection, will not produce harmful gases of mercury lamps
  • Easy to install, just a few simple steps, open the lid, wiring, and then close the lid.
  • Multi-mounted, suspended or ceiling mounted installation can adapt to different application scenarios.

How many kinds of tri-proof lights are there in the lighting market?
