Have you ever wondered how to make the light from your hazardous area temporary safety lights more effective?
By safely and securely positioning them in the right place, you can get the light exactly where you need it, thus allowing you to complete the job easily and quickly when lighting explosive atmospheres.
Wolf offer a full range of fixing and positioning accessories for use with their hazardous area temporary lighting products, allowing you to safely and effectively illuminate any hazardous work area.
Wolf Safety offers the widest range of ATEX and IECEx certified temporary lighting for safe use in potentially explosive atmospheres worldwide.
The range includes explosion protected mains and low voltage temporary LED luminaires and floodlites, tank lighting kits, handheld leadlamps, battery operated LED worklights and compressed air operated pneumatic lamps.
The range of accessories includes magnet kits, scaffold kits, tripods and hanging straps. In addition, we offer a unique ATEX certified anti-static protection accessory range for applications such as painting and shot blasting.
Once erected, a tripod stand gives a stable platform to allow the LinkEx™ LED Temporary Luminaires, Portable Fluorescent Leadlamps, LED Floodlites and XT Flood Bank Stands to be used at a variety of heights and positions.
The tripod allows the positioning of a temporary light to deliver vertical or horizontal forward facing light or in the horizontal position the light can be directed upwards illuminating the work area from the underside.
There are two models available:
A mounting bracket is required for the LinkEx™ LED Temporary Luminaire and Portable Fluorescent Leadlamp to attach to the tripod and position the lamp either horizontally or vertically.
An optional mounting bracket (LL-669 Z bracket) is available for the LinkEx™ LED Floodlites and XT Flood Bank Stands (for the Medium and Heavy Duty Tripods only) to attach to the lamp to the tripod and facilitate an easy removal of the lamp for frequent positioning at ground level.
The range of positioning, mounting and protection accessories for the WF-300XL includes fixing kits and Wolf Safety Lamp Company’s unique hazardous area certified, anti-static protection kits, as well as cable management fixtures.
Wolf’s fixing kits give flexible and sturdy mounting and positioning options for temporary applications – putting the floodlite exactly where it is needed to illuminate the work area and facilitate the work task.
WF-545: Magnet Kit – the WF-545 Magnet Kit has a stainless steel grille and 4 magnetic pads to grip tightly to flat ferrous metal surfaces.
WF-699: Scaffold Kit – the WF-699 Scaffold Kit allows the Floodlite to be fitted safely and securely to standard scaffold poles.
For standalone floodlite positioning, Wolf’s tripods give a stable platform allowing the floodlite to be attached and used at a variety of heights, enabling light to be directed at the work area from a wide variety of angles.
The Tripods are lightweight, easily transportable and ideal to help maximise the work area illuminated. Tripods are particularly useful for larger areas where increasing the height allows a greater area to be illuminated, and for trench work, where light can be directed into the trench below. See above for more information.
WF-480: Stainless Steel Mesh Cover – ideal for use in harsher environments where the lamp could be subjected to rough use, the WF-480 Stainless Steel Mesh Cover is easily and quickly mounted and removed from the floodlight frame with the supplied fixings.
WF-421/3: Anti-Static Lens Guard (Hazardous Area Certified) – the Hazardous Area certified, anti-static WF-421/3 Lens Guard can be attached to the front of the floodlite with the provided screws to protect the toughened glass lens and increase the life of the product, whilst still allowing excellent light output.
WF-462: Anti-Static Protection Cover Kit (Hazardous Area Certified) – The Hazardous Area certified, anti-static WF-462 Protection Kit protects the light from dirt, paint and other contaminates. Covering the whole product, the protection cover seals around the power cable with the cable ties provided, minimalising damage to the light and helping to extend its useful life.
LX-692: Magnet Cable Tidy – to keep the working area free from potential trip hazards, cable can be managed using the LX-692 Magnet Cable Tidy to elevate it from the ground along a ferrous metal surface.
If you should require something special to suit a particular Hazardous Area need, whether a variation to our existing range or a totally new accessory for a unique application or environment, please contact T&D to discuss a practical and safe solution.
A range of accessories to accommodate and enhance the usage of the Wolf Air powered ATEX and Ex Approved hazardous area Wolf Airlamps. The range includes:
Folding Tripod Stand (A-300)
This very strong and convenient tripod stand is available for mounting airlamps in such a way that illumination can be angled in most directions. The lamp can be clamped to the tripod head without the need of any tools. When not in use the tripod can be folded away for easy storage.
Anti-Static Compressed Air Hose (A-179 and A-180)
This special 12mm bore single braid hose is manufactured from an anti-static compound and is available in 18.3 metre (A-179) or 36.6 metre (A-180) lengths. Stainless Steel Hose Clips are provided but air line couplings are not for reasons of possible incompatibility.
Air Line Filters (A-184 and A-186)
A simple automatic drain airline filter (A-184) can be supplied, but where there are major difficulties in achieving the air quality required then an ultra high efficiency filter system (A-186) is recommended.
Due to the extra filtration the A-186 filter provides, there is an increased restriction on the air supplied through the air supply system, typical figures of the number of lights that can be used with the two types of filters are shown below:-
A-184 standard filter, having an air flow rate of 4.48m³/min can supply:-
Note: These figures assume that the compressor is adequate to deliver clean dry air of a suitable flowrate and pressure to the specific Wolf products that it will be powering and that the air system in general is well designed and has minimal losses.
WOLF LX-400 ACCESSORIES
Wolf’s extensive range of positioning, mounting and protection accessories, encompassing fixing kits, films and cable management, for the LinkEx™ LED Temporary Luminaire (LX-400 & LX-400E) give workers more secure temporary installation solutions for temporary lighting in hazardous area working environments.
Wolf’s LinkEx™ LED Temporary Luminaire plastic brackets, with snap shut mechanism and screw to lock securely closed around a luminaire, form a key component of all
Wolf’s fixing kits giving flexible and sturdy mounting and positioning options for temporary applications.
Securely mount or hang a luminaire almost anywhere and in any orientation – putting the luminaire exactly where it is needed.
For standalone luminaire positioning, Wolf’s tripods give a stable platform allowing the luminaire to be attached with the Tripod Bracket Kit and used at a variety of heights and positions to deliver vertical or horizontal forward facing light, in the horizontal position the light can be directed upwards, illuminating the work area from the underside.
The range of Tripod Stands available are lightweight, easily transportable, made from steel and will extend a lamp to a height of up to 3.2 metres and are ideal for both ‘180°’ (unidirectional illumination) and ‘360°’ (omni-directional ‘all round’ illumination) luminaires to maximise light area coverage for workers.
Not only is the positioning and mounting of luminaires key to worker efficiency but also the protection of the outer tube from damage to ensure its longevity, in optimal condition, for repeat usage. Wolf luminaires are used regularly in blasting, jetting, coating and painting applications and are protected from residue build-up by the use of a Protective Film or Protective Cover Kit, easily replaced between uses to ensure the product is delivering maximum light output without obstructions. Each film is supplied with an easy peel foam back adhesive for ease of application.
LX-545/3 Anti-Static Protective Film (Hazardous Area Certified) – the Hazardous Area certified, anti-static LX-545/3 Protective Film can be attached to luminaire protect it from dirt, paint and other contaminants to increase the life of the product, whilst still allowing excellent light output. Each pack contains 3 films.

Covering the whole product, the protective cover seals around the power cable with the cable ties provided, minimising potential damage to the light and helping to extend its useful life. Each kit contains 5 bags.
If the luminaire is deemed too bright, when being used in a confined space at head height by a worker, an LX-374 Internal Diffuser Film can be installed to minimise glare. Finally, to keep the working area free from potential trip hazards, cable can be managed using a LX-692 Magnet Cable Tidy to elevate it from the ground along a ferrous metal surface.
