We work across a wide range of industries, from oil and gas to petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food & drink production.

Certification & Classification

We can build hazardous area control systems to meet a variety of recognised certifications. Through our approved partnership with BARTEC, we can create hazardous area enclosures that comply with ATEX, IECEx, NEC500, NEC505 and INMETRO. We can even create low-temperature explosion-proof systems suitable for environments as low as -50°C.


We’re QAN-certified to manufacture ATEX electrical control systems. ATEX-certified equipment is suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in production facilities within the EU.


We’re QAR-certified to manufacture IECEx electrical control systems. This global safety standard is widely recognised across Europe, Australia, Russia, China and South Africa.


Our systems are suitable for use in Zones 1 and 2 on oil rigs, in mining areas and on cranes. They suit atmosphere groups IIA, IIB, IIC, IIIA, IIIB and IIIC and temperature classes T1 to T6.

Fast and Reliable Service

We’ve built our service on industry-leading engineering expertise combined with top-quality solutions and fast turnaround to help you get your hazardous area control systems in place quickly and efficiently.
We hold a wide range of BARTEC enclosures in stock, helping you benefit from reduced lead-in times.
And our own in-house developed software means we can produce detailed calculations to ensure your enclosure meets your exact requirements, including size, heat rise and dissipation, volumetric capacity and pressure piling, for ultimate peace of mind.
