New LED Luminaire for harsh and corrosive Industrial Applications



Africa’s leading manufacturer of energy efficient luminaires, BEKA Schréder, is set to launch its new Roughguard LED industrial luminaire into the local market at the upcoming Electra Mining Africa 2016 exhibition taking place in Johannesburg in September.

The Roughguard LED has been designed to be used in industrial corrosive and harsh environments. It will be manufactured using a high-pressure die-cast marine grade aluminum with a robust clear polycarbonate diffuser. The vandal proof polycarbonate diffuser is secured to the body by six stainless steel Allen head tamper proof screws.

With applications like police and prison cells, railway stations, underground parking areas, mining workshops and others, where vandalism and corrosive elements are prevalent, the Roughguard LED will be able to not only withstand these environments but to also efficiently provide light exactly where it is needed.
