ATEX Zones


ATEX Directive

ATEX certified:

SCHILLING gantry cranes and other lifting gear are also certified for ATEX Zone-1 environments. Wherever flammable substances such as gases, mists, vapours or combustible dusts are present in ignitable concentrations, there is a danger of explosions. Any talk of explosion protection usually also mentions the term ATEX. ATEX stands for ATmosphères EXplosibles. The ATEX Directive, which is sub-divided into the ATEX Product Directive 2016/34/EU and the ATEX Workplace Directive 1992/92/EC, regulates this explosion protection.

In response to increasing demand, we can supply both variants of our aluminium gantry cranes, i.e. the stationary stationary gantry crane and the mobile gantry crane under load, with certification according to European Directive 2014/34/EU for Zone 1 environments. We can also put together a custom special lifting solution for you that complies with ATEX Product Directive 2016/34/EU. Interested? Simply contact us (our contact data is on the right next to the ATEX symbol).
