A CRI greater than 70 delivers exceptional visibility for improved safety in harsh environments, and the certified Area Light is available in both cool white and neutral white CCT options. Backed by Dialight’s five-year, full performance warranty, the new SafeSite Class I Div 2 Area Light offers up to 10 years of worry-free , maintenance-free performance, even at operating temperatures from -40°F to +149°F.
