Explosion-proof lighting [Ex / ATEX – Zone 21, 22, 2] is a type of specialized lighting system designed for safe use in environments where there is a risk of explosion caused by the presence of flammable gases, vapors, dusts, or mists. These lighting systems must meet the strict requirements set by the ATEX directive in the European Union and other international standards such as IECEx to ensure protection in workplaces characterized by potentially explosive atmospheres.

This lighting is designed with the aim of eliminating the possibility of spark generation, overheating, or any other sources of heat that could initiate an explosion. Materials that do not cause sparking and constructions that ensure optimal heat dissipation are used in their production. The innovation and advanced technology of these lighting systems allow them to operate efficiently even in the most extreme industrial conditions.

ATEX lighting engineered for hazardous, explosion-prone environments. For internal and external use as general lighting in Zone 21, 22 and 2. Well-thought-out fixture design helps reduce the costs of installation materials and labor. These EX light fixtures and fittings, embedded with advanced LED technology, ensure robust and reliable illumination while adhering to stringent ATEX and IECEx certifications.

Explosion-proof lighting [Ex / ATEX – Zone 21, 22, 2] are specialized solutions designed for use in places where there is a risk of explosion. The use of such fixtures is essential in spaces threatened by the presence of flammable gases, vapors, mists, or dusts. Based on the analysis of available information, these fixtures are characterized by high-quality construction, compliance with safety standards, and advanced functionalities.

Types of fixtures

We mainly distinguish two types of fixtures:

  1. Ex lighting fixtures: provide constant illumination of work areas. They are equipped with high-performance LED modules, which guarantee excellent lighting while maintaining energy efficiency.
  2. Ex emergency fixtures: provide lighting in emergency situations, e.g., during a power outage. They are available in versions with a built-in battery or designed to work with a central battery, allowing for adaptation to the specific needs of the facility.

Features of OptiLine explosion-proof fixtures

Explosion-proof fixtures are characterized by a series of features that enhance their functionality and safety of use:

  1. Through-wiring: facilitates installation and reduces installation costs by eliminating junction boxes.
  2. Additional lenses: the possibility of choosing from 22 types of lenses allows for precise light direction, providing optimal illumination of key work areas.
  3. Installation without loose parts: the design of the fixtures minimizes the risk of losing elements during installation, which translates into safety and speed of installation.

Advantages of lighting based on OptiLine Ex ATEX fixtures

Explosion-proof Ex / ATEX lighting offers numerous advantages:

  1. Compliance with ATEX and IECEx standards: guarantees safe use in Zones at risk of explosion.
  2. High resistance: to chemicals, mechanical damage, and atmospheric conditions, making them ideal for use in challenging industrial conditions.
  3. Energy efficiency: thanks to the use of LED technology, the fixtures provide high luminous efficiency while reducing energy consumption.

Application of Ex lighting

Explosion-proof lighting is used in a wide range of industrial sectors, including the chemical, petrochemical, energy industries, as well as anywhere safe lighting is required in Zones at risk of explosion. They are indispensable solutions for both outdoor and indoor use, providing reliability and safety at the workplace.

In summary, explosion-proof lighting [Ex / ATEX – Zone 21, 22, 2] is a key element of safety infrastructure in Zones at risk of explosion, offering not only high efficiency and durability but also compliance with international safety standards.

Explosion Hazard Zones

Zones 21, 22, and 2, indicated by ATEX regulations, define different levels of explosion hazard based on the frequency of occurrence and duration of the presence of flammable substances. In Zone 21, the risk of an explosive atmosphere is constant or long-lasting, in Zone 22 it occurs occasionally, while Zone 2 is characterized by a sporadic risk of such an atmosphere. Explosion-proof lighting must therefore be appropriately adapted to the specific conditions of each of these Zones to ensure the safety of users and infrastructure protection. Each lighting system is carefully designed and tested to meet these requirements, which includes a detailed analysis of potential hazards and appropriate preventive measures. Additionally, the high quality of lighting contributes to improving working conditions, increasing visibility and safety for employees.

Certification of fixtures for Ex lighting

The certification process for explosion-proof lighting is complex and multi-stage, ensuring that each device introduced to the market is fully safe and meets all applicable
