ATEX hazardous areas (potentially explosive atmospheres)
In ATEX hazardous areas (Potentially Explosive Atmospheres), a spark from mechanical, electric, electrostatic origin etc., may ignite an inflammable gas or vapor or mist mixture and an explosion may occur.
Hence the importance of risk assessment.
If this assessment reveals that wearing protective equipment against falls from heights is necessary in ATEX area, they must be suitable for use in ATEX atmospheres.
Our entire range can be used in ATEX atmosphere (zone 1), it conforms to standards EN 13463-1:2009 and ISO 80079-36:2016 + ISO 80079-37:2016.
The webbing is also tested in accordance with EN 1149-1:2006.
