Pyroban adds Red Ex Line
Pyroban's Red Ex
Pyroban has launched Red Ex Line explosion-proof perimeter lights for ATEX trucks operating in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 hazardous areas. The compact, ready-to-fit lights are suitable for use with forklifts of any age or make.
"For production or storage applications where pedestrians work in close proximity to trucks handling flammable materials, there are clear safety implications," says Darren Boiling, materials handling sales manager for Pyroban. "Red Ex Line helps minimise risks for all of those working in Zoned hazardous areas by providing a perimeter marking warning system around a truck."
"It is particularly effective in increasing safety where visibility is poor, such as in warehouse aisles or crossings where IBCs or drums containing flammable material are being handled," he adds.
The new lights can be easily fitted in the field to forklifts from any EX manufacturer.
