Light Fixture Certification

If you manufacture light fixtures intended for controlled environments where low air pollutant levels, cleanability, durability and structural integrity are critical, third-party certification is imperative.

Controlled environment light fixtures in a laboratory

The protocol NSF P442 is a single certification that demonstrates that light fixtures are constructed for use in controlled environments such as pharmaceutical processing, biotech research, biosafety laboratories, surgical suites, clean room manufacturing, food processing and horticulture.

NSF P442: Controlled Environment Light Fixtures combines various test elements into one certification, demonstrating to customers and consulting engineers that P442 certified light fixtures meet the highest level of quality in the industry. The test elements include:

  • Testing required by the standard NSF/ANSI 2: Food Equipment, which establishes minimum sanitation requirements for materials, design and construction
  • Testing to demonstrate an International Protection (IP) rating of 65 or higher, showing that the light fixture provides a high level of protection against the intrusion of dust and water
  • Unique pressure tests developed especially for NSF P442
