R-50, R-55
ZONES: 0, 1, 2, 21 AND 22

This high strength right-angle torch is extremely robust and reliable, with proven shock protection, even at sub zero temperatures, rubber armoured lens ring and end cap, scratch and chemical attack resistance lens, with a certified IP67 enclosure.  The compact, lightweight and ergonomic torch body gives enhanced grip and comfort for the user with easy single-handed switching, even with gloved hands, plus the replaceable high strength clip allows for hands free use.

Unique optics deliver a piercing beam of outstanding light from a high power LED, and using the latest rechargeable battery technology provides a light duration of up to 6.5hrs on low power and 3.5hrs on high power. The low battery power indicator allows a user to monitor the state of battery charge as it diminishes, a bar of high intensity red LEDs go out and finally the beam flashes repeatedly, warning recharging is required. Plus its emergency function illuminates the torch if power to the charger is cut to provide standby escape lighting. 

The torch is low maintenance with quick and easy parts replacement, a full spares service is offered for all internal/external fittings, and the LED light source is expected to last the product's lifetime. Vehicle and mains voltage charger options offer a rapid recharge time of only 1.5hrs for 90% capacity, plus the mountable ‘quick’ charger is configured as a torch holder, with ‘snap in/snatch out’ function, for quick release but secure retention.
