Like our popular wet location and NEMA 4X all-weather units, CW-ELs are built to withstand the elements while providing the upmost insulation for the battery backup. All of these units come optional with a battery heater to protect the cell from temperatures as low as -5° F.
However some locations can drop far below this point; temperatures that can actually rupture acid-based batteries, causing damage to the entire unit. If your outdoor location reaches these arctic temps, consider our cold weather emergency lights, which can survive environments as low as -40° F.
Cold weather luminaries can be wall, strut or beam mounted in:
Cold weather emergency lighting fixtures have a cast aluminum rear housing with a clear, UV resistant polycarbonate faceplate. Housing and faceplate are sealed with waterproof gaskets and fastened with tamper-proof screws that require a special bit to loosen.
Housing is available in white, black or gray.
Tool-less MR16 swivel lamps allow for precise lighting cone control. They come in the following options:
6-volt 18-watt Lead Calcium battery is standard. Also available in 12-volt cells in 24, 36, or 54 watts.
Nickel Cadmium batteries are nearly identical to lead calcium, except with an extended shelf life of 5-7 years.
Nickel Metal Hydride (NIMH) batteries are extremely efficient, allowing a large capacity from a small cell. 12-volt, 60-watt NIMH are the largest battery that can fit in a cold weather emergency light.
Self-testing - this option is factory installed into every cold weather unit, though they must be disabled or enabled before installation. This feature monitors the battery, lamps and circuitry for errors along with monthly and yearly lighting tests that greatly reduce your maintenance costs.
