If you've filled out a Shelter Works Request for Quote form you may have noticed that one of the questions under our electrical options asks if your project is "Explosion Proof".  Explosion Proof is a term used when describing protection techniques applied when designing products used in locations that have been classified as hazardous. These protections are put in place to prevent an internal spark or explosion from causing a much larger blast.

Not all hazardous environments are the same. For this reason, the National Electrical Code (NECŪ) has set up a classification system to help you understand the differences between hazardous environments.  In this classification system there are three Classes.  The Classes indicate what type of ignition source may be present.

Class I:  Gas & Vapor

Class II:  Dust

Class III:  Fibers & Filings
