What kind of work tools and gear are suitable for potentially explosive areas and atmospheres?
Gear and tools must be sparkless, have no hot surfaces and must not charge with static electricity.
Gear and tools must be durable for hazardous substances, such as flammable liquids, flammable gases and flammable dusts. This means that gear and tools for potentially explosive areas must have the highest temperature class or T classification (T1, T2, T3, T4, T5, T6) and explosion group (IIA, IIB, IIC).
Gear and tools must be suitable for potentially explosive atmospheres and areas. (0, 1, 2, 20, 21, 22)
