Controlling explosive atmospheres

ATEX is the name given to the legal requirements for controlling explosive atmospheres and the suitability of equipment and protective systems used in them. Essentially, ATEX is an acronym for ‘Atmospheres Explosible’. ATEX is part of DSEAR, or the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations which were imposed in 2002. Since the introduction of the ATEX safety standards in 2003, Industrial Fan Services Ltd have designed and manufactured our specialist ATEX ventilation fans to these standards.


A range of fans to suit all eventualities

The actual features on the fan will vary according to zone, gas/dust type, ignition temperature, and whether zone is inside and/or out, open inlet or fully ducted. At Industrial Fan Services Ltd, we have a range of ATEX fan grades to cover all eventualities which will be carefully selected for you by our experienced technical sales team.
