Product Description


Like our popular wet location and NEMA 4X all-weather units, CW-ELs are built to withstand the elements while providing the upmost insulation for the battery backup. All of these units come optional with a battery heater to protect the cell from temperatures as low as -5° F.

However some locations can drop far below this point; temperatures that can actually rupture acid-based batteries, causing damage to the entire unit. If your outdoor location reaches these arctic temps, consider our cold weather emergency lights, which can survive environments as low as -40° F.


  • NEMA 4X rated for all-weather climates
  • Polycarbonate shield is corrosion proof
  • Backup battery heater can operate in temps as low as -40° F
  • 90-minute emergency run time
  • UL 924 Listed for use in the USA and Canada


Cold weather luminaries can be wall, strut or beam mounted in:

  • Food processing centers
  • Marine locations
  • Chemical plants
  • Parking garages
  • Transit platforms
  • Cold Storage units


Cold weather emergency lighting fixtures have a cast aluminum rear housing with a clear, UV resistant polycarbonate faceplate. Housing and faceplate are sealed with waterproof gaskets and fastened with tamper-proof screws that require a special bit to loosen.

Housing is available in white, black or gray.

  • Silent advanced diagnostic charging board

Lamp Specifications

Tool-less MR16 swivel lamps allow for precise lighting cone control. They come in the following options:

  1. MR16 Halogen lamps - available in 6, 12 and even 20 watt versions.
  2. 20W MR16 IR lamps are given a special infrared reflective coating for extra brilliance.
  3. 4W white LED lamps produce 200 lumens of total illumination. When paired with a 12V NIMH battery, LED lamps will last more than 7.5 hours!


6-volt 18-watt Lead Calcium battery is standard. Also available in 12-volt cells in 24, 36, or 54 watts.

Nickel Cadmium batteries are nearly identical to lead calcium, except with an extended shelf life of 5-7 years.

Nickel Metal Hydride (NIMH) batteries are extremely efficient, allowing a large capacity from a small cell. 12-volt, 60-watt NIMH  are the largest battery that can fit in a cold weather emergency light.


Self-testing - this option is factory installed into every cold weather unit, though they must be disabled or enabled before installation. This feature monitors the battery, lamps and circuitry for errors along with monthly and yearly lighting tests that greatly reduce your maintenance costs.
