NSF-Rated Lighting for Food Service
NSF International and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) develop and test products that are designed to be used around food – from processing, preparation, service to storage. Lighting is no exception to these regulations.
NSF certified fixtures have been tested by a third party and meet or exceed the following requirements:
- Hose down resistant
- Corrosion resistant
- Tightly sealed that permit bacteria, or dust to permeate
- Free from toxic material
- Shatter resistant lens
NSF certified solutions should be the lighting source for areas that are the most at risk for food contamination.
