Larson Electronics' Magnalight line of industrial grade explosion proof lights and heavy duty spotlights continue to be a popular equipment choice in cinematic productions with their latest appearance in the new Green Lantern movie set to be released June 17th. Magnalight lighting equipment has to date been used in several Hollywood features and television series including "True Blood", "I Am Legend" and "GI Joe." Versatile, durable and backed by excellent service, Magnalight products are proven performers both on and off the screen.
The HAL-48-2L Hazardous Area Fluorescent Light Fixture makes its cinema appearance in the new Green Lantern movie due in theatres June 17th 2011. This explosion proof light fixture is designed to provide reliable and safe illumination in hazardous locations where dangerous flammable chemicals and vapors may be present. Built to withstand corrosive and damaging environments, this two lamp fluorescent light fixture is extremely durable, which makes it an excellent choice for applications where reliability is critical. This safe operation, reliability and durability is a Larson Electronics hallmark and designed into all of Magnalight's Hazardous Location Lighting Equipment which explains the popularity of Magnalight products in Hollywood productions.
Considering Hollywood's propensity for creating spectacular fires and explosion effects in many of its big budget action flicks, it only makes sense that movie sets would utilize high quality lighting equipment designed for safe operation around flammable materials. The power and versatility of Magnalight lighting equipment played a part in the HML-6M Military Spotlights appearing in the Will Smith movie "I am Legend" as well as the HL-85-HID's appearance in season 2 of the True Blood television series. The GI Joe movie utilized several remote controlled spotlights including the Magnalight GL-3049H, and with the appearance of the hal-48-2l explosion proof fluorescent fixture in the new Green lantern movie, Magnalight continues to prove rugged and reliable enough to be chosen for use in the expensive and high profile environment of movie production. It probably doesn't hurt that Magalights's equipment, particularly their military spotlights and LED lights, just plain look good as well.
Although Magnalight products have proven popular with movie makers, with a Class 1 Division 2, Groups A, B, C, D approval, non sparking aluminum construction and multi-voltage capability, the hal-48-2l explosion proof fixture's real home is in the industrial workplace where the safety of the worker is the highest priority.
Larson Electronics produces a comprehensive line of explosion proof lights, intrinsically safe lights, explosion proof work lights and hazardous location lighting equipment and accessories.
