Industries that manufacture, store, or distribute flammable materials should be aware of the risk of an explosive environment developing during normal operations. In such an environment, unprotected forklift trucks could create an explosion. We work with a handful of companies that provide suitable protection for diesel and electric trucks operating in such locations, ensuring the safety of both the people and the environment.
Explosion proofing eliminates ignition sources while maintaining the vehicle’s original ergonomics and performance, and it conforms with European Directive ATEX 94/9/EC. We offer explosion-proof versions of several of our electric or diesel-powered forklifts, pallet trucks, and other warehouse equipment. Components which could trigger sparking, such as drive components, wheels, or even lifting forks, are encapsulated, sealed, or made of highly safe materials.
