ATEX Pedestrian Stacker Truck
Our pneumatic-hydraulic forked stacker truck fills a gap in the market. Traditionally ATEX stacker trucks are either manual-hydraulic or electric-hydraulic powered, these can be impracticable and expensive. Our air-powered zoned stacker trucks use an airline connection to power the hydraulics, the forked stacker unit is fully certified for both gas (G) and dust (D) hazardous areas, zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.
Fully compliant lift system
Our qualified engineers install pneumatic circuits and mandatory safety features such as emergency stops and blocking valves. Operators simply plug-in an airline to enable the functions, they then press the operate button and actuate the main lever to lift and lower loads. Should the airline be disconnected for any reason, the forks will remain in place and the load will remain safe.
ATEX-certified for gas and dust zones 1, 2, 21 and 22
It is vital that only certified equipment is used when explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres exist. Our pneumatic-hydraulic pedestrian stacker is ATEX certified for use in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 environments. Each of our ATEX stacker trucks are designed to ensure electrical continuity, a path to ground is always present. With each ATEX model we supply a manufacturer’s EU Declaration of Conformity which states compliance with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU.
Stainless steel clad forks
To reduce the risk of spark generation we fit our ATEX stacker trucks with stainless steel clad forks; should the forks contact the ground the chance of a spark is drastically reduced.
