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

U.S. Chemical provides several electrical accessories to help safely manage and maintain a reliable power supply to your chemical storage building. Providing electricity to the devices and units you need to operate keeps the integrity of your hazardous compounds high and increases production capacity.
Factory Electrical Installation
During manufacturing, our experienced team installs electrical items and runs conduit. We ensure junction boxes, conduits and circuit breakers are properly sized by engineering, and wiring and breakers are per electrical schematic drawings based on NEC and manufacturers recommendations. All equipment boxes, electrical accessories, and electronic devices mounted on exterior of building are rated for outdoor use. Distribution panels are always labeled and any metal parts which may become energized are bonded.
Electrical Quality Assurance
The U.S. Chemical Storage quality assurance team performs visual inspections, dielectric strength, continuity, operational tests and polarity checks at the factory. The fault is repaired and retested if a test fails. After all tests are passed, information is documented, dated, and signed off. Images and inspection reports are kept on file. Any third-party inspections, when required, are performed by state approved agencies.
