ATEX 95 Compliant, C/S Explovent® wall panels are a field testable explosion and pressure relief panel system, for integration into the external facade of a building. Panels hinge open during damaging over-pressures, helping to prevent catastrophic damage to the building structure.
The only field testable system
If you're involved with a facility where potentially explosive atmospheres, materials or processes exist, you know that it's critical for your pressure venting system to function according to its design parameters.
C/S Explovent® wall panels are precisely calibrated at the factory to open at predetermined pressures, thereby avoiding catastrophic damage. The panels can be field tested for an initial non-destructive verification, or at any time as part of an ongoing safety programme.
- Compliant with ATEX 95 (Directive 94/9/EC of the European Parliament and the Council Concerning Equipment and Protective Systems Intended for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres)
- Explovent® meets the guidelines of N.F.P.A. 68 'Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting'
- Explovent meets the guidelines of FM 1-44 and includes FM tested and approved models, which are listed on the online FM APPROVAL GUIDE www.approvalguide.com
Reduce Costly Downtime
C/S Explovent® wall panels were designed for frequent cycling, occurrences such as minor wind driven actuations will not compromise the panels or the system. That's because Explovent's unique hinged design combined with its patented latch mechanism and tested hold open device permit a building's weather integrity to be restored within minutes.
