Ultra-bright LED for food and drink industry

07 March 2012

The Patlite CLA series of eco-friendly slim LED bar lights not only uses 52% less energy and creates fewer than half the CO2 emissions of traditional lighting, but it is also so robust it can withstand water, severely high temperatures and is even explosion-proof, making it ideal for use in the food and drink industry

Now available from, the ultra bright LED technology is available in seven different sizes, to suit all applications. Waterproof (tested with pressurised water at 80°C) and dustproof, the CLA series is specifically designed to save energy without having to compromise on brightness or durability.

The polycarbonate resin housing ensures the lights are resistant to the most severe of external conditions such as chemicals and high temperatures (withstands extreme temperatures from -40°C to +60°C). This tough protective casing reduces the risk of glass breaking and mixing with goods on the production line. Its water-proof quality means that it can be washed down again and again without causing any damage to the lighting or posing a risk to staff.

An added benefit of the CLA series is that it has passed ECOLAB material resistance tests performed against cleaning substances P3-topactive OKTO, P3-topactive 200 and P3-topax 56, proving its super durable resistance.

A major advantage of LED technology is its straight beam which eradicates uneven bright/dark patches, simulating natural light. PATLITE have used translucent material and a seamless design in their LED bar light, which creates uniform light and a wide-spanning illumination range of 120°.

Summary of characteristics of the PATLITE LED bar light (in comparison to a traditional fluorescent tube):
Highly reliable mercury-free LED chip which offers 10x the lifespan (40,000 additional hours of light).
Cost-saving: uses 52% less energy.*
Creates less than half the CO2 emissions .**
Does not generate as much heat (during testing reached 39.5° at room temperature after an hour as opposed to the fluorescent tube which reached 60°).
