Cooper Lighting Recalls Chain Sets Sold with Commercial Light Fixtures Due to Injury Hazard

January 4, 2011

S Hook On April 30, 2010 Cooper Lighting LLC, of Peachtree City, Ga. recalled approximately 5,000 chain sets sold with Metalux light fixtures because an “S” hook on the chain connecting the fixture to the ceiling can straighten when subjected to high impact forces, resulting in the light fixture falling. This poses an injury hazard to consumers. Cooper Lighting has received three reports of light fixtures having one chain detached or the fixture falling. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the AYC or HBAYC model chain set for use in a gymnasium or similar recreational facility with one of the following Metalux commercial light fixtures: F-Bay HB/2HB; F-Bay 2HBHD; F-Bay HBE; F-Bay HBHT; F-Bay HBI; F-Bay HBL; F-Bay 2HE Series 2HE; Arctic Bay AB; or Arctic Bay ABI.

These lighting fixtures were sold at authorized distributors nationwide from May 2006 through March 2010 for between $1.50 and $3. They were manufactured in the United States.

You should contact Cooper Lighting immediately for free replacement “S” hooks for all fixtures located within gymnasiums and similar recreational facilities. Maintenance personnel in these facilities should inspect the fixtures immediately and take down any units with straightened “S” hooks.

For additional information, contact Cooper Lighting at (800) 954-7228 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at
