WHY ADDED SAFETY?

When you handle potentially hazardous materials, a risk assessment will define the high risk areas as either Zone 1 or Zone 2.

Anything outside of these areas can be classed as a safe area, but Pyroban believe that when you are handling potentially hazardous materials, there are no safe areas.

Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas have the potential, in varying degrees, to contain gas, and any unprotected equipment operating in these areas could become an ignition source if they came into contact. The boundaries to these areas are not fixed, however, and gases can easily cross from a Zone 2 area into what is essentially a ‘safe’ area.

Pyroban believe that when you are handling potentially hazardous materials, all areas, including ones which are not classified as potentially hazardous, should be protected against the risk of explosion.

It is very easy for materials handling equipment to cross from a safe area into a Zone 2 area without realising it, for example a forklift moving pallets from a storage area into a loading bay ready for dispatch.

If a gas is accidentally released, it only takes one spark to cause an explosion, and all materials handling equipment needs to be protected regardless of where they operate on a site.

Pyroban have the knowledge and the products to protect all mobile equipment for use throughout your site for Zone 1, Zone 2 and Added Safety areas.
