ATEX Certified Radios

ATEX certified radios are designed to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres. They are built to strict safety standards that ensure they will not create a spark or heat source that could ignite flammable gases or dust. This makes them essential for use in industries such as oil and gas, mining, and manufacturing, where there is a risk of explosions.

ATEX stands for “Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles.” It is a European safety standard that applies to equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX radios must meet all of the requirements of this standard, which includes rigorous testing to ensure they are safe to use.

There are two main types of ATEX certified radios: intrinsically safe, and explosion-proof. Intrinsically safe radios are designed to operate at a safe energy level that cannot ignite flammable gases or dust. Explosion-proof radios are enclosed in a protective housing that prevents sparks or heat from escaping and igniting flammable materials.

When choosing a radio for your staff, it is important to consider the specific hazards of the environment in which it will be used. For example, radios used in oil and gas refineries will need to be explosion-proof, while radios used in mining operations may only need to be intrinsically safe.

ATEX certified radios offer a number of advantages over non-certified radios. They are safer to use in potentially explosive atmospheres and can help to improve communication and productivity in hazardous environments.


  • Increased safety: Designed to prevent explosions, which can protect workers from injury or death.
  • Improved communication: Provide clear and reliable communication in hazardous environments, which can help to improve safety and productivity.
  • Reduced risk of fines: Using non-certified radios in hazardous environments can result in fines from government agencies. ATEX certified radios help to ensure that you are in compliance with safety regulations.
