Application Focus: Lighting for Distilleries

Distilleries are one of the more interesting and unique applications where the use of hazardous area lighting is required. Often doubling up as a tourist attraction, they present a unique challenge where lighting must be functional, aesthetically pleasing, and in-keeping with the existing architecture of the building. Raytec have been involved in a number of distillery projects over the years, and in our latest Application Focus, we share some of our experiences and identify some of the key things to consider when specifying luminaires for these types of environments.
