ATEX 94/9/EC, BS EN 14986:2007 is the directive on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Commonly referred to as the ATEX Directive, it became British law in 1996, manufacturers had an option in complying with the regulations from 23 March 1994 up until final transition period end date of 1 July 2003.
The directive is now EU law and any equipment, electrical or mechanical for installation within the EU member states must now comply.
Fans were identified as a major source of potential ignition and a CEN committee was set up to produce a standard specifically for the manufacture of fans for use in hazardous areas.
As part of the ATEX Directive we have a duty to liaise with our customers and obtain particular information to enable us to select fans of the correct catagory and certification to satisfy application requirements. To assist you with your enquiries and to assist us to provide the appropriate proposals we offer our “ATEX Fan Enquiry Form” for completion and submission. Although this form is not mandatory, it is offered for advice and as a basis to discuss and agree your requirements.
