Frequently asked questions about high-speed roll-up doors for ATEX areas

What is an ‘ATEX area’?

ATEX is an abbreviation that means ‘Explosive Atmosphere”; therefore, an ATEX area is one where there is a concentration of gases or dust in the atmosphere, which may trigger an explosion. In many production processes, the materials used day to day are considered dangerous because their concentration may cause explosions. In these cases, the high-speed doors must have antistatic fabrics, motors, control cabinet, buttons, etc. that completely eliminate electrical contact sparks.

What safety mechanisms does the door for ATEX areas feature?

Safety mechanisms include a safety photocell integrated into the side guide, and a sensor strip on the lower part of the fabric which, should an obstacle be detected, it will raise the door and not allow it to descend until the area is clear.

What is an explosive atmosphere?

This is where, in atmospheric conditions, gas, vapour, mist or dust flammable substances mix with air and, following ignition, the combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. The ATEX door can section off explosive atmospheres up to type II 2.G
