GCC Facilities Management provides a wide range of commercial cleaning services to suit any industry or sector, including ATEX compliant cleaning services.
What is ATEX Compliant Cleaning?
Industries that have been classified as having potentially explosive atmospheres present require specialist cleaning to ensure the safety of these environments, their workers and their equipment. These regulations are covered under DSEAR and were introduced in 2002. Such environments can be classified into one of three classes: present continuously, present intermittently, present abnormally.
These industries are required to be compliant under DSEAR by assessing potential risks and hazards and putting control measures in place to minimise the risk. A common hazard found in these environments is the risk of explosive particles (typically originating from dust, particles and/or vapours) which at high concentrations, can create potentially explosive atmospheres. Therefore, this dust needs to be removed from the atmosphere as safely as possible.
GCC Facilities Management uses specialist equipment operated by highly trained teams to safely remove the dust and particles that can cause these hazards. All the equipment used is manufactured specially for these environments, ensuring dust is removed slowly to avoid disturbing the particles and creating concentrated clouds that could easily be ignited. These systems are fully conductive to ensure spark-free operation.
