Explosion protection ATEX

When working with high explosive materials, such as natural gas, special precautions are needed. Langer & Laumann developed the ATEX explosion-protected housing for use in areas at risk of explosions. The term ATEX is derived from ATmosphère EXplosibles.

HandwerkATEX is a common synonym for the ATEX directives on explosion protection in the European Union. 2014/34/EU regulates explosion protection for all kinds of equipment for the European market.

Door drives for machinery doors and lifts from Langer & Laumann meet the requirements for this directive and as a result can be used for areas at risk of explosion (class: II 2G Ex de IIB+H2 T5 Gb IP66).
