The traditional solution to provide lighting in milking parlors is overhead vapor-tight or metal-halide fixtures. Due to the significant amount of equipment in the parlors as well as the positioning of the animals there is typically very low light levels at the point of the milking process where lighting is required most. There is simply nowhere to effectively mount traditional lighting in the minimal space available close to the milking process.
Conventional lighting can rarely meet the rigorous demands of this harsh agricultural application. Any lighting near the parlors are subject to impact from cows, exposure to urine and manure and rigorous daily cleaning with high pressure wash down and cleaning chemicals.
G&G’s low-profile, harsh environment, WPX series linear luminaires are ideal solutions at the milking stations, just inches from the udders. The compact 1” round tubular design of the fixtures provides a simple installation in the tight available space. The IP68/IP69K waterproof rating and IK07 impact rating ensures long-term durability through daily contact and high-pressure wash downs in the incredibly demanding environment.
