Ex-protected LED UV systems and medium pressure lamps

“Transform Hazardous Environments into Safe Spaces with IST METZ's Cutting-Edge Solutions for Explosive Atmospheres in the Printing Industry!"

In the dynamic realm where potentially explosive atmospheres are prevalent, IST METZ stands tall as a pioneer in crafting bespoke solutions for the printing and industrial sectors. We specialize in designing systems for hazardous areas, ensuring optimal safety while incorporating UV technology, revolutionizing formerly solvent-laden environments.

Our expertise lies in engineering solutions compliant with ATEX guidelines, safeguarding against the constant or intermittent presence of combustible gases, vapors, or mists in explosive atmospheres. Within these zones, specifically the ex-protected LED lights and medium pressure lamps, play a pivotal role. These luminaires, tailored to withstand and cure in these challenging settings, not only offer exceptional curing but also guarantee optimal workplace safety.

At IST METZ, we adhere when chosen as an option rigorously to the ATEX directives, focusing on protecting individuals, machinery, and the environment from potential explosions. In packaging and flexographic printing, where solvent-based inks and cleaning agents are prevalent, the formation of explosive atmospheres is a distinct risk. However, our solutions ensure a seamless transition by integrating UV drying technologies that adhere strictly to prevailing standards.

Drawing from legislative frameworks like the EU's ATEX directives, EU chemical regulations, and national standards like the National Electrical Code (NEC) in the United States, IST METZ operates at the forefront of compliance. In Germany, our solutions align with the Hazardous Substances Act (Gefahrstoffverordnung), Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances (TRGS), and Operational Safety Ordinance (Betriebssicherheitsverordnung), ensuring comprehensive adherence to legal and technical requisites.
