Within its product range, Leroy-Somer also has the equipment that may be used in areas requiring higher safety level of the installed equipment. These areas are called “hazardous areas”. By definition, the “hazardous area” is the area where explosive gas atmosphere is or may be expected, and in a quantity which requires special measures for construction, installation, and use of electric devices. It is very important to select the equipment properly depending on defined hazardous areas in some facility (and which has to be described in the Study of hazardous areas). All equipment manufactured by Leroy-Somer, and designed for work in hazardous areas, has all necessary certificates and attests that are valid in the European Union countries.
