The NexLED bulkhead luminaire utilises high output 1 Watt light emitting diodes (LEDs), delivering a white, instant and highly visible light. Compact and versatile, the NexLED is suited to low profile applications, such as walkways or restricted height areas and can be mounted on walls, handrails and ceilings.

Especially suited to exposed conditions with high levels of dust and moisture, the enclosure is corrosion-resistant marine grade aluminium with a toughened glass cover, silicone rubber sealing gasket and stainless steel fixings. The product can be fitted with either two or eight low-power LEDs, making the NexLED an efficient luminaire for both mains and emergency mode operation from the backup battery.

Also available as an emergency option, the use of LED technology means that light output in emergency mode is identical to mains operation – lamps will switch off for one second when the mains fail, then restart to indicate battery operation.
