  • Hazardous lighting for indoor/outdoor, open areas, offshore, fuel farms, and battery rooms and enclosures Suitable for Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 
  • We can supply from all major electrical hazardous area brands

We can assist in replacing out-of-date and discontinued hazardous area lighting products with the latest technology. We can also design and create custom or bespoke hazardous area lighting solutions.

We stock a variety of IECEx-rated lighting equipment, including:

  • Linear fluorescent and LED lighting
  • Bulkhead & path lighting – LED
  • Paint room/clean room lighting – fluorescent and LED
  • Tubular LED lighting
  • Emergency exit lighting
  • Ex floodlights – LED, HPS and halogen
  • Hazardous area rated torches and headlamps
  • Signal lighting – Zenon and LED
  • Helideck/obstruction lighting & aircraft beacons
  • Intrinsically safe work lights


Hazardous area lighting is a critical component of ensuring safety in high-risk environments throughout Australia. These specialised lighting solutions are designed for use in harsh industrial environments. 

Emergency lights for hazardous areas like all hazardous lighting products, need to be built to stringent standards. They should be engineered to minimise the risk of ignition, while also providing reliable illumination in classified zones. This is what we offer at EX Engineering. 

With advanced technologies, these lighting products offer durable protection against harsh conditions. They are suitable for a wide range of industries, including hydrogen, agriculture, oil and gas, chemical plants, mining, and refineries. Hazardous area lighting plays a vital role in maintaining safety, visibility, and compliance in these demanding environments.

Hazardous LED Lighting - Linear Luminaire with LED EXLUX Series


LED lights allow for compact designs, energy efficiency, reliability, and a long service life – integral aspects of prioritising health, safety, and environmental responsibility in the workplace.

Save energy, reduce maintenance costs and benefit from a long-life lighting solution with maintenance-free, hazardous area LED lighting. LEDs are particularly well-suited for Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas due to their enhanced safety features, reducing the risk of ignition in potentially explosive atmospheres.

In addition, LEDs are a safer, environmentally friendly hazardous area lighting option as they are free from mercury.

An LED light is nearly ten times more efficient than a normal light. Also, LED luminaires save energy while providing instant light. This makes LED a popular technology for hazardous area floodlights and explosion proof lighting solutions. 

LED is the preferred lighting option for hazardous areas with extreme temperatures as it copes with high vibration resistance and is well suited to use in harsh industrial environments.


In the realm of hazardous area lighting, the distinction between Zone 1 and Zone 2 is paramount. At EX Engineering, we provide safety and efficiency with our Zone 1 and Zone 2 lighting solutions. Our IECEx-certified LED lights and fixtures are engineered to shine brightly, ensuring steadfast reliability in the most demanding conditions. LEDs are particularly well-suited for Zone 1 and Zone 2 hazardous areas due to their enhanced safety features, reducing the risk of ignition in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Trust in EX Engineering to light up your hazardous areas, where safety,sustainability and visibility are essential. Explore our range to find the perfect lighting solution that meets the high standards required for your specific Zone 1 and Zone 2 needs.

IECEx Certified

Our purpose-built workshop in Perth has been certified to repair the following types of protection: Ex t, Ex d, Ex e, Ex n and Ex i. This means that all of our customised, designed, repaired and assembled Ex rated equipment is guaranteed to be compliant.

Engineering Capability

EX Engineerings point of difference is we have the capability and competency to select and review products through our engineering team. We have electrical engineers with the competency to: 

• Review and classify hazardous areas
• Select equipment suitable for use in a hazardous area
• Complete the required engineering calculations to demonstrate compliance (MDP, IS Parameters, etc.)
• Have an in-depth understanding of protection techniques
• Review and give an opinion on equipment suitability
• Create and issue Conformity Assessment Documents (CAD)
• Create bespoke EX solutions
• Approve the repair of certified equipment

Hazardous areas are all we do, and we don’t just sell hazardous area certified products; we manufacture, repair and certify hazardous area equipment. Our depth of experience and collaborative style of working ensure the right selection of equipment for your application.

Quality Assurance

We have a structured Quality Assurance (QA) system, which allows us to pay more attention than is required.

Depending on how critical the shipment is, we assign a QA level that determines whether the product is checked by one person, two people, or the engineering team – so the QA is always tailored to suit.

Our process involves two different check levels that ensure:

  • Overall compliance
  • The product is fit for purpose
