ATEX zones (Explosive Atmospheres) are spaces in which one or more flammable substances (particles, vapor and/or gas) are found. If an electrostatic spark or electric shock is created, the mixture may ignite and cause an explosion.

Work in ATEX areas is regulated by directives and standards which help to avoid accidents.
The ISO 80079-36 standard aims to prevent the material used in ATEX zones from triggering sparks.

The use of antistatic fabric in ATEX areas is highly recommended as it does not allow the creation of static charges that can create a spark.

Using robot covers enables:
  • Protect your robot against projections and aggressions.
  • Reduce maintenance costs.
  • Operate in critical environments.
  • Increase of robot life-time
  • Work with clean tools (required in the food transformation industry)
