Hazardous Ex/ATEX Zone lighting is a key element in ensuring safety in workplaces where there is a risk of explosion due to the presence of flammable gases, vapors, or dusts. The specification of Zones, such as 21, 22, and 2, refers to the classification of areas where there is an explosion hazard, with each of these Zones having specific requirements for the lighting used. Zone 21 is an area where flammable dust may be present in the air during normal operations for extended periods, Zone 22 is a place where flammable dust may occur occasionally, and Zone 2 refers to gases and vapors that are present sporadically. For each of these Zones, the use of specially designed explosion-proof lighting is required, which minimizes the risk of initiating an explosion.

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.

Designing Ex Lighting

Designing lighting for Ex/ATEX Zones requires the application of advanced technologies and materials that can withstand extreme conditions and not lead to the ignition of present factors. Lighting must not only be efficient and energy-saving but above all safe, meaning resistance to high temperatures, pressure, and the presence of aggressive substances. The production of such lighting is regulated by strict international and European standards, including the ATEX directive, which ensures that each device has been properly tested and certified for use in specific explosion hazard Zones.

Implementing Ex Lighting

Implementing lighting that meets the requirements of Ex/ATEX Zones is fundamental to ensuring safe working conditions in industries such as mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, or biomass processing areas, where the risk of explosion is particularly high. The correct selection and installation of lighting in these Zones not only contribute to the protection of workers' lives but also to securing property from potential damage resulting from explosions. Companies providing such lighting solutions aim for their products to not only meet all legal and regulatory requirements but also to be efficient and durable, which translates into reduced operating and maintenance costs. Investing in high-quality explosion-proof lighting is therefore not just a matter of complying with regulations but also a conscious effort to ensure safety and operational efficiency in high-risk environments.

Lighting and EX Zones

Explosion-proof lighting Ex / ATEX – Zone 21, 22, 2 are advanced technological solutions designed to ensure safety and lighting efficiency in places where the risk of explosion poses a real threat. Available products include both Ex lighting fixtures for continuous illumination and Ex emergency fixtures essential for lighting in emergency situations. We distinguish fixtures with their own battery and those designed to work with a central battery.

OptiLine Ex Series Lighting Fixture

A distinctive feature of these fixtures is the possibility of through-wiring, eliminating the need for junction boxes, which simplifies installation and reduces installation costs. Additionally, the fixtures are equipped with high-efficiency LED modules and offer the possibility of easy lens replacement, allowing for the adjustment of light direction and intensity to individual needs. A key advantage is the lack of loose parts, ensuring quick and safe installation.

These fixtures provide high resistance to chemicals, mechanical damage, and harsh atmospheric conditions, making them an ideal solution for the chemical, petrochemical, energy, wood, and food industries. Their application is not limited to these sectors, as they are suitable anywhere long durability and a high level of safety confirmed by ATEX, IECEx, and CNBOP certificates are required.

In summary, explosion-proof lighting Ex / ATEX is indispensable in ensuring safety and lighting efficiency in Zones at risk of explosion, offering advanced technological solutions that meet the highest standards.
