Hazardous Locations Design Consulting


Projects and Experience

Our consultants have over 20 years of practical experience in the design and certification of intrinsically safe equipment. We have done a wide variety of hazardous locations equipment spanning multiple industries. We have the experience and perspective necessary to make your hazardous locations project a success.

The following is a small selection of the intrinsically safe design and hazardous locations consulting projects we have participated in. Most projects were certified to Class I, Division 1, Group A-D and Zone 0, Group IIC certifications for Canada, the United States, ATEX and IEC. These comprise the most stringent requirements in the world.
