Specialists in EX hazardous area motor repairs

As specialists in EX hazardous area electric motor repairs, we have experience in the repair and overhaul of hazardous area equipment.


When electronic or electrical equipment of any type is intended for use in a hazardous area, it must be ATEX certified as required by two EU directives – ATEX being derived from the French 'ATmospheres EXplosives'.

​The directives are:

  • The ATEX 95 equipment directive 94/9/EC, Equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres;

  • The ATEX 137 workplace directive 99/92/EC, Minimum requirements for improving the safety and health protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
