Petrel is an established UK manufacturer of high-performance LED lighting, Zone Lighting, Traditional Technology and Custom Build Products for use in hazardous areas. We provide a wide range of fixed, portable and transportable lighting for sale.

We're a trusted brand with over 40 years of experience, providing lighting across sectors which are known for having highly regulated installation requirements and harsh environments

These range from onshore and offshore oil, gas and petrochemical sites, automotive manufacturing plants, potentially explosive dusty environments, MoD to industrial plants, showcasing just how flexible and adaptable our lighting solutions are.

Proudly manufactured in the UK to the benefit of customers across the world

We design and manufacture high-quality products from our production facility in Birmingham UK. We work with, and ship to customers all around the world daily, and it gives the whole team here an immense sense of pride when we supply products to global customers from our UK base in the Midlands, whilst supporting other local businesses in our supply chain. Even better news is that our in-house end-to-end production brings a host of benefits for our customers - such as speedy results and a considerable amount of flexibility on schedules for highly competitive lead times. This flexibility can also extend to the supply of bespoke or customised solutions for customers to provide added value beyond the standard catalogue offer.

All our hazardous area lighting is tested in the UK and certified to UKCA and ATEX standards, which are recognised throughout the world. Petrel work closely with industry bodies when developing and testing new products – resulting in thoroughly tested, world class products that we are proud to supply. We offer our flagship products with ATEXUKEX and IECEx certification on the full 7 Series product line, the 9 Series LED range and the full suite of Area Light

High performance LEDs are becoming the standard in lighting

LEDs are now the norm in hazardous area lighting, as the UK government has started phasing out the sale of fluorescent tubes and lamps in September 2023. Here at Petrel, we are committed to providing maximum value for our clients and support the UK's pledge to drive down energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions. 

As such we offer a complete range of LED products for use in Zone 1/21 & 2/22 as well as Industrial applications, including an Area light, suited to range of environments where traditionally a floodlight, high bay or low bay luminaire would have been used.  

Using energy-efficient LED equivalents to fluorescent lighting will not only save you up to 50% per year* in energy costs, but also contribute towards your net-zero journey as a business.
