1.What Is Meant by Security Flashlight?
A security flashlight is a battery-operated hand lamp that is specifically designed to be “intrinsically safe”. This means that even if broken can cause a sufficiently large electric spark to trigger an explosion in a flammable atmosphere.
For that not to happen, the safety flashlights often encased in plastic, with no exposed metal parts. They are fitted with plastic glass that is virtually unbreakable and designed so that the electrical circuit is broken before the flashlight head dismantled (eg to change the batteries). Remember: Most rubber or past enclosed flashlights that you can buy in stores not safety flashlights. They may not be used in potentially flammable or explosive atmospheres. All flashlights that can be used in flammable or explosive atmospheres “safety flashlights” and either follows national standards for intrinsically safe electrical equipment or the current European standard.
2. How Do I Use It?
Safety Flashlights from Garyflashlights.com distributed to all staff working in places where there is a risk of fire or explosion.
Before you bring a flashlight into a potentially dangerous area, ensure that
- it functions properly,
- no parts are loose or missing,
- batteries do not need to be replaced,
- only the type of batteries specified in the approval certificate accompanying the torch is used,
- device is properly sealed.
Never attempt to disassemble the torch to replace the batteries or bulb when you are in a dangerous area. If you find an error, you should leave the area before trying to repair it, or obtain a new flashlight that works.
3. How Do I Care about the Safety of the Flashlight?
Keep all safety flashlights clean and store them in a cool, dry place when not in use. Remove batteries from the flashlight as soon as possible to prevent leakage and potential damage to the unit.
Remove the batteries from the flashlight when not in use and store them in a cool, dry place. No more than two months’ stock of spare batteries should be stored at the same time to keep them “fresh”.
