GRP Safety and Isolation Switches Atex & IECEx

The GRP Ex safety and isolation switch, allows work with a machine to safely maintain, clean and overhaul it as long as the switch is in the OFF position.
The GRP Ex safety and isolation switch are made of glass fibre reinforced polyester “Ex e”. All the metal elements are anti-corrosive rust proof. Concave-convex joints between the covers and bodies are designed to mount an air-foam silicone bar, which secure an IP66 degree of protection. Terminal boxes are used for dividing and connecting wires for various electrical apparatus and instruments in the circuits. Installation is certified for zones 1, 2, 21 and 22; with features of high corrosion protection, water -proof and dustproof, they can meet the requirements in chemical, petrochemical and marine industries.
