Shat-R-Shield offers next-gen IP68 safety-coated LED lamps
By Anthony Capkun
July 8, 2014 – Shat-R-Shield—a manufacturer of shatterproof lamps—introduced its latest generation of IP68 waterproof, safety-coated LED lamps, promising a “sleeker style” of lamp while boasting energy and cost savings of up to 30% in comparison to the previous generation.
The new lamps have a thin layer of silicone coating that seals the lamp to protect fragile electronic components against moisture, corrosion and premature failure. They are suitable for landscape and dock lighting, washdown areas and other harsh environments. For a fully protected unit, the company also offers watertight sockets sold as accessories to Shat-R-Shield waterproof LED lamps. Each socket comes with silicone sleeves that fit over the neck of the lamp and base of the socket to ensure a watertight seal in IP66 conditions.
