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.
