The distinguishing feature of our ex-protected trucks is that they have been designed from the outset for operation in potentially explosive zones, not simply “converted” from a non-ex truck. As Sichelschmidt does not adapt existing machines, users can be assured of the utmost performance and safety levels. Each individual component – from the motor to the brakes and the forks – is specifically constructed to rule out any risk of explosion. Sichelschmidt electric forklifts from the ex-protected range are all tested and certified by the stated relevant authority (e.g. by the Physical Technical Federal Establishment in Braunschweig/ the PTB or the TÜV North CERT), and for the USA and Canada come with a Factory Mutual (FM) stamp of approval.
The ATEX risk analysis will determine whether you need a truck for Zone 1 or Zone 2. We offer certified electric trucks compliant for both risk categories –specifically designed for these demanding working environments!
