GP ATEX

The GP ATEX (or Atmospheric Explosible) Explosion Proof chain hoists are a specialised execution of the GP chain hoists, capable of being used in sensitive areas where there is a high risk of explosion from dust particles or gaseous substances. 

the GP hoists have 2 categories to assist in this. The Dust Atex hoists provides protection through IP65 protection, temperature surveillance and specialised sealed cable glands. 

The GAS Atex hoists provide additional protection by using an airline and valve system to maintain a constant pressure inside the hoist area. Should the pressure drop the hoist will stop working and not activate until pressure is restored. 

Trolleys are also available for both executions of hoist,
