When working with hazardous materials, it is crucial to have durable, efficient lighting in each part of your chemical storage building. Every U.S. Chemical Storage lighting fixture is manufactured to guarantee visibility and safety.
We offer a wide variety of explosion proof and non-explosion proof lighting options for storage buildings. Light fixture placement is based on chemical storage building size, mounting height of light fixture and photometrics measured in lumens per fixture.
UL Listed and factory sealed fixtures meet requirements as follows:
- Class I, Div. 1 & 2, Groups C and D Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups llB, llA
- Class II, Div. 1 & 2, Groups E,F,G
- Class III, Div. 1 & 2
- Suitable for wet locations
- NEMA 3, 4, 4X
Types of Lighting
Standard Pendant Type Fixtures
Standard pendant style light fixtures extend down from the ceiling. Chemical storage building height can be raised to accommodate these fixtures, or the light fixture can be relocated to corners or walls to avoid walking into it.
Linear Type Fixtures
Optional linear type light fixtures are available in both LED and fluorescent styles. Fixtures are mounted near the center of the ceiling and positioned to give fire suppression components center-ceiling priority. Rated for 20⁰ F and for cold weather starts, the ballast is thermally protected for temperatures down to 0⁰ F.
Battery backup emergency lighting is available for lighting an egress path when required by local regulations. Class 1&2, Division 1&2, options available.

Explosion Proof Lighting
U.S. Chemical Storage explosion proof interior lighting is made with sealed heavy-duty housing, a glass globe, and a protective metal guard. Corrosion-proof, water-resistant construction prevents sparks within the housing, dramatically reducing the risk of igniting dust, gases, vapors, or fibers in the air surrounding the fixture.
Non-Explosion Proof Lighting
Our non-explosion proof interior lights are encased in die-cast aluminum, silicone gaskets, and thermal shock resistant soda lime glass to prevent shattering and resist degrading in the presence of high temperatures. Built to strictly adhere to all regulations, these indoor incandescent fixtures set industry standards in compliance where explosion proof interior lighting is not required.
