Ex-PERT Launch Hazardous Area Product Portal

On the 1st of January a new website Ex-PERT was launched, allowing End-Users to more quickly and easily find Hazardous Area Equipment that meets their specific needs.

Ex-PERT enables users of the site to filter products based on the Certification, Hazardous Atmosphere, and the Zone, right down to the Temperatures that the equipment must be suitable for.

Kerry Norcross, MD, explains the concept: "Having worked for a Notified Body for a number of years I have been asked regularly where can I find this product or that product which has suitable certification, and as part of Accreditation I have never been able to advise.

I realised that there was nowhere in the market that people could go to and quickly and easily find products based upon their suitability and certification requirements.

That’s where Ex-PERT comes in. Ex-PERT is designed to capture a wide range of products on the market and allows site users to easily filter them based upon their specific demands.

We work with the supplier’s to produce quality listings that are informative, accurate and unbiased. The site gathers together key technical information and presents it in a uniform, easy to understand format."

Ex-PERT is also producing a monthly Newsletter - Ex-PERT Eye - which is aimed at being a really useful and interesting resource. As well as keeping readers informed of the latest standards, exhibitions and news headlines, the Newsletter features a panel of ‘Ex-PERT Experts’ who will be providing topical articles on everything from certifying your product to marketing it, designing through to installation.

"I feel particularly proud and privileged of the panel we have on board – it consists of some real leaders within the Industry, all very talented and knowledgeable in their specific fields."

The Ex-PERT website is the focus of the management team’s efforts, with other avenues being explored that will in future bolster the website and the business further. "The Ex-PERT ethos is to evolve, to improve. In the Hazardous Area Industry we do not stand still with our technology, and neither should we stand still with the way we promote it."

The site has so far focussed predominantly on Lighting, Enclosures, Detection and Technology but aims to span the whole sphere of Hazloc products within the next six months.

As such Ex-PERT is calling out to manufacturers and suppliers to list on the site, and currently has a number of launch promotions to be taken advantage of.
