Active Gas Detection

ATEX Explosion Proof Reach Trucks

Pyroban can convert all makes and models of reach trucks so that they are safe for use in Zone 2 certified hazardous areas (ATEX). Our gas detection product system6000 offers active explosion protection in Zone 2 areas and can be adapted for use on nearly all electrically powered reach trucks.

Pyroban system6000 is a comprehensive safety system which our engineers will adapt to ensure your forklift truck retains all of its original features and ergonomics. This is undertaken at one of our Pyroban conversion centres - Pyroban BV for Europe and Pyroban Suzhou for Asia. A number of OEM options can be integrated with system6000 such as cameras, fleet management systems, pin access and Speedshield.

Gas Detection

Your reach truck will be fitted with a state of the art gas sensing head to allow it to detect gas when your explosion proof reach truck is in operation. There are two different gas sensing heads, Pellistor and Infrared, and the correct head will be fitted depending on your application and potential gas risks. In the event that a gas is detected, system6000 will safely shut your truck down and bring it to a controlled stop, protecting it from the risk of explosion.

Control Module

The system6000 control module is fitted within the forklift truck cab and is used to start the system. It provides a continual interface between the truck and the operator and is used to inform them when any gas is detected.


An important part of the system6000 conversion is ensuring that all truck components are protected and temperature monitored. Pyroban Zone 2 ATEX certified components will be used where necessary in place of any OEM components. If any temperature monitored component reaches a predetermined level, system6000 will automatically shut down the forklift truck so that it is protected from the risk of explosion.
