HACCP Australia is a leading food science organisation that certifies products as food safe and appropriate for use in food production and food handling areas. Their slogan is ‘eliminate the hazard – reduce the risk’ and certification is based on a thorough assessment and physical examination of the product. Generally a lighting product that meets their standards has to be non toxic, easy to clean and likely to reduce the risk of contamination.
There are no problems using these lights in food preparation areas in cafes and restaurants, but we do understand that industrial food handling facilities are often disinfected with heavily chlorinated products that are sprayed far and wide. Our fixings have acrylic lenses and are not affected by such exposure, but the polycarbonate body of some other products will deteriorate if continually exposed to high levels of chlorine.
Designed specifically for food processing plants, the Highbay Luminaire delivers in both form and function.
With no glass or exposed screws, and featuring smooth, clean lines, the seamless construction, coupled with a high-quality gasket sealing to IP66, make it the perfect solution for food applications where regular hosing and cleaning is required.
