Explosion Proof Extension Cord

Looking for a kick-ass extension cord? Check out this beauty made by Larson Electronics of Kemp, Texas.

But before you rush down to Target to buy one you might take note- the plug on your Christmas lights probably won’t fit. This heavy duty 30 amp extension cord is approved for Class 1 Division 1 & 2 and Class 2 Division 1 environments where flammable gases and vapors are present.

“We offer a wide range of explosion proof extension cords with different lengths and connectors in stock; we also build custom configurations for customers on demand,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ Magnalight.com. “We commonly build these cords for our customers to accompany our explosion proof lights and/or our power distribution systems.”

Good for 30 amps of continuous electron flow the EPEXC-50-30A-P can be used in hazardous environments and is explosion-proof. Awesome.
