Recently we were tasked by one of our clients to supply and install Air Conditioning which is ATEX rated Zone II. These units are specially adapted to be installed in an explosion-safe environment. This is another example of the specialist Air Conditioning installations we carry out for a number of our clients. Installations like these are specialist to ensure compliance therefore all of these rated systems are issued with certification from our supplier in Europe.
What is ATEX?
The ATEX consists of two EU directives which describes both equipment and the workspace allowed in an explosive atmosphere. Our element is to do with the equipment installed that has a specialist adaption and certification to become ATEX rated. Therefore the mechanical & electrical equipment we supply will be ‘spark free’ complying with the explosion-safe environment. You can find out more information on ATEX and explosive atmospheres on the HSE website https://www.hse.gov.uk/fireandexplosion/atex.htm
