The spotlight is not explosion proof.

- crown point, in
'Explosionproof', as defined by the NEC: "enclosure containing arcing or sparking contacts that are hermetically sealed against gas or vapor entry". Based on what I can see, by unscrewing the lamp assembly, there is nothing sealing the internal parts from the open air; therefore, I would assume that this is NOT a class 1, division 2-certified piece of equipment. An internal spark could easily ignite a combustible/flammable atmosphere. Also, I saw nothing on the packaging that would refute this opinion.

Interesting question. I have worked in environments that requires such a question. It does not claim to be explosive proof. Reviewing the case, I can tell you it would not likely qualify for certification.
