Atex Compliance

LEDFlex now offers a range of linear lighting solutions that are Atex compliant, making them an ideal solution for hazardous, explosive environments. Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, vapours or combustible dusts which can cause serious injuries as well as significant damage to surroundings areas. The EU directives distinguish between two different types of explosive atmospheres: gas and dust in high pressure environments. Atex certified products undergo rigorous testing as outlined by the EU directives to ensure that they are intrinsically safe and that the products can be used safely in specific environments without causing a spark or reaching a high temperature which could easily ignite an explosive atmosphere.

EXPLOSIVE GAS ATMOSPHERE

ZONE 0 - An explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air and dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is present continuously.
ZONE 1 - An explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air and dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is occasionally present during normal working practices.
ZONE 2 - An explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air and dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation or is present only for short periods of time.

EXPLOSIVE DUST ATMOSPHERE

ZONE 20 - An explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in the air is present continuously.
ZONE 21 - An explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in the air is likely to occur during normal working practices.
ZONE 22 - An explosive atmosphere in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in the air is not likely to occur in normal operation or is present only for short periods of time.

LEDFlex, with our new explosive proof lighting solutions, is committed to assuring safety whilst offering a premium finish for any lighting design concept. Our flexible linear lighting easily copes with a range of complex environments when combined with purpose-built accessories. The explosion proof luminaires distribute consistent and continuous light, ensuring safe and well-lit spaces built for indoor and outdoor hazardous environments across various industries.

Mining Icon

MINING

Mines and factories are commonly known to have hazardous environments due to the volume of high pressure labour and use of heavy duty equipment.

Oil And Gas Icon

OIL & GAS

Oil and gas industries face the risk of fire and explosion due to ignition of flammable gases such as hydrogen sulphide which can be released from wells, trucks, production equipment.

Transport Icon

TRANSPORT

Underground tubes, railway trains, airplanes all pose potential risks on account of how they are designed as compact spaces with a confined amount of airflow.

Marinee Icon

MARINE

From cruise ships to yachts, watercrafts retain a large amount of flammable gases and fuel emissions that have the potential to create temperamental conditions onboard.
