The ATEX Directives have been around for many years but do buyers understand what “ATEX compliant” means in the real world and should they look deeper when asked to supply or purchase an ATEX compliant forklift truck?

Pyroban has released a new white paper which explains the requirements for an ATEX forklift truck, as well as the certification requirements for Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22. The white paper also details how a forklift truck’s normal function is maintained, whilst achieving ATEX compliance and which factors should be considered when deciding on a forklift supplier to select for purchases.

The white paper is now available for free download here.
