Fenix Headlamps - Our Recommendations for Industrial Environments and Professional Tradesmen.
Depend on your headlamp for work ? Need total durability and reliability year in / year out ? Look to Fenix for your ultimate solution. All our Fenix headlamps in this category have proven durable in the toughest work environments. (You may see a theme developing here, if your headlamp is going to see the very toughest abuse we recommend mainly our aluminium unibody products with the battery built into the head). How tough are our selection for industry, will they stand up to punishment ? Check out the story below !
Tim Kidner of T&V Kidner based in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire told us all we need to know. Tim used to regularly buy headlamps of another brand to replace the many breakages and occasional lost product in his business (high pressure washing large industrial tanks) Since moving to Fenix we only hear from him occasionally, simply to replace lost products. As Tim says, the Fenix headlamps we supply him simply don't break!
Earlier this year one of Tim's workers dropped a Fenix HL60R approximately 4 metres into a large steel tank he was high pressure washing. The headlamp was submerged in oil and duly pumped out under pressure into a transfer tank (through the pump / steel pipes and tank) The oil and HL60R headlamp were then transferred by pump (ouch!) once again into an oill seperator upon which the Fenix HL60R became stuck in the separator filter. 2 days after initially being dropped in the tank an operator was cleaning the filter and noticed a glow! Yep, after all that the HL60R was still running. The light was cleaned and is still in use.
