Larson Electronics has announced the release of an Explosion Proof LED Aluminum Drop Light. Constructed to be completely impact and weather resistant, this LED drop light sacrifices no light output or quality to obtain these features.

The FTL-5-LED-50 LED drop light from Larson Electronics is ideal in practically any environment, the company says. The LED lamp in these drop lights offer much longer lamp life, cooler operation, higher durability, and better light quality than incandescent drop lights. This LED task light is shock resistant and is durable enough to withstand drops, falls, and rough handling, the company says.

The FTL-5-LED-50 is equipped with an LEDT8-28W-V1 T8 bulb that produces 2750 lumens of light and requires no ballast to operate. Larson Electronics says the lightly frosted lens diffuses the light and makes this bulb ideal for food safe environments as there is no glass. The aluminum housing serves as a heat sink and provides rigidity and strength for this LED bulb. The handle and the end of this task light are finished with a polyoxymethylene plastic, the company says.

“Generally, when you lean a trouble light on its base, you pinch the cord, which ultimately becomes the failure point for the light,” says Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “We machine a metal insert for our base at the cord handle connection so when the light is leaned up against a wall, there is no damage to the cord.”
