BIRNS Lights Receive UL Listing


OXNARD, CA – BIRNS, Inc. has received its Underwriter’s Laboratories listing for its line of BIRNS Emergency Lighting Fixtures™.  The new certification is applicable to both LED and incandescent configurations of the acclaimed lighting systems, which are widely used inside primary nuclear containment across the world. BIRNS emergency lights are seismically qualified per IEEE-344, are capable of withstanding a major earthquake and provide extended illumination in case of nuclear station power failure.

The new UL listing covers BIRNS’ emergency light models 4710, 4702 and 4726. The BIRNS Emergency Light Fixture-LED™, Model 4710, provides 24-40 hours of automatic SSE lighting, with a 35,000 hour lamp life and a low overall system power draw. It delivers up to five times more standby illumination than required by 10CFR50, App. R Sect. III.J., in case of SBO or loss of AC power, and helps nuclear stations achieve B.5.b (EA-02-026) Post-Fire Safe-Shutdown. The BIRNS Emergency Light Fixture, Model 4702, is a 450 lumen incandescent system, which provides eight hours of automatic lighting. The BIRNS Emergency Power Unit™, Model 4726, allows configurations of remotely mounted LED or incandescent headlights for the fixture.

All BIRNS emergency lighting systems are available with multiple voltage and mounting options, and feature integral sealed, rechargeable batteries and solid state charging circuitry for superior performance. The slim-profiled units have a mirror-finish, stainless steel construction that’s highly resistant to humidity, acids, and other corrosives, and is easy to clean.
