Explosion Protection

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.

Explosion Protection

The drives themselves burn flammable fuel in many applications, resulting in high temperatures in engine parts and exhausts. The entire engine in these trucks are fitted with explosion-proof encapsulation. The engine and control elements’ central electrics, as well as the starter battery, starter, and alternator, are all pressure-resistant. Like conventional vehicles, all forklift variants are available with optional special equipment. Wiper motors, functioning lights, and flashing indicator warning lights are all electrically driven and therefore explosion-proof.
