Mines are notorious for their extreme harsh environments – from around-the-clock operation in order to light the depths of the Earth to the presence of constant moisture and dust, vibration and even hazardous locations, the quality of a lighting system used in a mine leaves no room for failure as the worker’s lives literally depend on it. Providing adequate, glare-free illumination underground is paramount not only to productivity but to safety as well.
G&G’s LED luminaires are an excellent solution for mining facilities as they are highly engineered for durability in challenging environments, meaning less blackouts and less maintenance due to longer life.
