    Division 1 and Division 2 are Hazardous Location classifications. If you go to http://www.ul.com/hazloc/div.htm it gives you a bit more of an explanation. The proper terminology for this is Class 1 Division 1 or 2. There is also Class 2 Divisions 1 or 2. It is a system for classifying the hazards of an area and specifying the ratings for electrical equipment.
