Hawke Hazardous Area Enclosures and Junction Boxes

T&D UK distribute from stock Hazardous Area (ATEX Zones 1, 2, 21, 22 Certified) EExd Flameproof & Explosion Proof and EExe Increased Safety electrical enclosures and junction boxes.

Hazardous Area Zones Classification

  • Zone 1 - where flammable atmosphere is likely to occur during normal operation.
  • Zone 2 - where flammable atmosphere is not likely to occur during normal operation and if it does will only exist for short period of time, typically less than 10 hours per year.
  • Zone 21 - a place in which an explosive atmosphere, in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air, is likely to occur occasionally in normal operation.
  • Zone 22 - a place in which an explosive atmosphere, in the form of a cloud of combustible dust in air, is likely to occur in normal operation but, if it does occur, will persist only for a short period.

Flameproof Ex "d" Electrical Enclosures & Junction Boxes - electrical equipment may include arcing and sparking (incendive) devices and flammable mixtures which may enter the enclosure or junction box. The electrical enclosure construction is designed to contain an internal explosion and prevent transmission of sufficient energy to ignite a potentially flammable atmosphere outside the enclosure or junction box.

Increased Safety Ex "e" Electrical Enclosures & Junction Boxes - explosive mixtures may enter the electrical enclosure but the likelihood of a fault condition, which could result in ignition of the mixture, is significantly reduced. The components within the electrical enclosure or junction box shall not produce arcs, sparks or temperatures above that of ignition temperature of the surrounding atmosphere in normal working conditions. Minimum ingress protection IP54 for increased safety electrical equipment.

ATEX Hazardous Area Electrical Enclosures Junction Boxes - Zone 1 Zone 2 Certified

ATEX Certified Junction Boxes & Enclosures for Hazardous Areas
ATEX is the name given to a set of European Directives relating to Hazardous Area Electrical Equipment Installations (Flammable Atmospheres) to avoid industrial accident or incident. ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95), is a directive adopted by the EU under the “New Approach” strategy.

The “New Approach” ATEX directive supersedes the “Old Approach” ATEX Directive, the Potentially Explosive Atmospheres Directive, 76/117/EEC – ATEX 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) facilitates free trade in the EC for hazardous area electrical equipment intended to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) covers “Electrical Equipment” used in hazardous areas with potentially explosive atmospheres created by presence of gases, vapours, mists or dusts.

T&D UK stock and distribute an extensive range of ATEX Certified Low Voltage and High Voltage Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas including cable glands, electrical enclosures, junction boxes, plugs and sockets, cable joints, control stations, cable transits, cable cleats, mobile phones, laptops, digital cameras, conduit systems, portable lighting (torches, handlamps, headlamps).
