Yale ATEX YLLHP/G Low Headroom Chain Block
The Yale YLLHP/G is ATEX rated and provides protection against sparks which may cause explosions in hazardous areas.

In addition to the specialised elements of its design, it offers all of the same benefits as standard chain blocks from Yale, such as a high level of durability, straightforward maintenance and cost-effective operation.

Safety Benefits of Yale ATEX Chain Blocks
There are lots of commercial atmospheres in which a standard chain block will not be able to operate safety because of the likelihood that sparks will be created during use. For that reason, an ATEX rated hoist is an essential investment if you want to steer clear of danger. From flammable gasses and vapours to powders and dusts which are combustible by nature, the YLLHP/G hoists will provide the ability to work alongside them without threatening injury, death or property damage.
It is not just the block itself that is coated with a material that limits the likelihood of sparks being generated. The safety features also extend to the brakes, which are cooled to prevent them interacting with the environment in a hazardous way. Even the trolley on which the hoist is mounted is coated, so the block can be manoeuvred smoothly and safely.
Practicality of YLLHP/G Low Headroom Chain Block
Aside from its ATEX-compliant features, the obvious selling point of this Yale chain block is its compact design which makes it possible to use in places where headroom is limited. It will sit comfortably on a beam and move freely, with safe working loads up of to 10 tonnes available.
