EAGLEVILLE, PA, August 28, 2015 – Streamlight® Inc., a leading provider of high-performance lighting, introduced a new intrinsically safe torch, the 3AA ProPolymer® HAZ-LO® 7 LED. The new light, which offers a seven-LED cluster for close-up task lighting, features ATEX and IECEx safety ratings for use in Zone 0 environments faced by many first responders.
“Firefighters and other safety personnel deserve to have the security of knowing that their torches will perform under the most hazardous conditions,” said Streamlight Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Michael F. Dineen. “The 3AA ProPolymer HAZ-LO7 LED gives them that assurance when they are operating in environments where there is high potential for explosive hazards.”
The lightweight new torch provides seven 5mm ultra-bright white LEDs, which deliver 57 lumens and a 500 candela peak beam intensity over a beam distance of 45 meters. Ideal for detail work or for working at arm’s length, the light offers 24 hours of run time to 10% of its initial lumen output. It is powered by three, easily sourced AA size alkaline batteries, and features mechanical battery polarity protection.
The new torch is constructed from an engineering polymer resin that is virtually indestructible, shock resistant and anti-static, and which features superior resistance to chemicals and solvents used in many industries. The light includes a push-button tail switch for momentary or constant on operation; an integrated and retained face cap lock, and an unbreakable polycarbonate lens with scratch-resistant coating.
The 3AA ProPolymer® HAZ-LO® 7 LED weighs only 6.6 ounces, and measures seven inches in length. It is IP67 rated for dust-tight construction and waterproof operation to 1 meter for 30 minutes, and is also impact resistance-tested to 3 meters. Available in High Visibility Orange, it comes with Streamlight’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The MSRP for the 3AA ProPolymer HAZ-LO7 LED is $60.00.
