Particularly noteworthy are industrial applications in areas such as loading and unloading warehouses, urban waste treatment depots, vehicle repair shops or inspection pits.
In addition, it can be installed in agricultural areas as large warehouses of machinery or areas of unloading of cereals, an area with large amounts of dust.
ATEX for Zone 2 and 22
A Zone 2 area is classified as an atmosphere where a mixture of air and flammable substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation, but if it does occur, will persist for a short period only.
A Zone 22 area is an area in which combustible dust clouds may occur infrequently and persist for only short periods of time or in which accumulations or layers may be present under abnormal conditions.
The Airfal R & D & Department is already working on the development of a new ATEX model, which is expected to be released by the end of the year. With this new luminaire the Secure family will be extended by the models Pyros, Vitra, Taurus, Minex, Lumex, Flame, Secure and LED Secure.
