Potentially explosive atmospheres include areas where a spark could ignite gasses, vapour or mist and trigger an explosion; sparks may be of a mechanical, electric or electrostatic nature.
We have added a selection of Atex rated height safety equipment to the height safety category to cover this scenario; our selection is in accordance with the Necessary ATEX directive 2014/34/EU; standards EN 13463-1:2001 & EN 13463-5:2003 with webbing tested to EN 1149-1:2006 standards.
We have included an Atex safety harness, Atex fall arrest block, Atex Karabiner connector and a couple of Atex lanyards to cover the majority of simple working at height tasks. All incorporate components which minimise the potential spark risk by using special materials and coatings.
The ATEX Safety Harness features anti-static properties and has 3 connection points and fully adjustable straps.
The ATEX fall arrester has 10 metres of retractable 4.5mm wire rope, a karabiner for anchoring and a swivel snap hook with a load indicator for a lower attachment point.
The ATEX Carabiner has a screw locking gate with a 22.5mm opening; made from aluminium with a breaking strength of 23kN.
The ATEX lanyards come in 2 types; a 44mm energy absorbing webbing lanyard with an aluminium scaffold hook and carabiner connectors and a forked lanyard which is also energy-absorbing with 2 scaffold hooks and a screw lock carabiner all in aluminium.
