ATEX Rated Equipment

Lift Safe Ltd has the UK largest range of pedestrian controlled hydraulic, semi-electric and fully powered lifting equipment. Over 90% of all our lifting equipment can be manufactured to ATEX zones 1,2,21 and 22.

The term ATEX stands for Atmosphere Exposable or explosive atmosphere. This is an environment in which a flammable substance, such as gas, vapour, or dust, comes into contact with oxygen. If electrical and mechanical equipment or heat or static electricity is used in this environment, there is a risk of explosion if sparks are released.

Counterbalance Drum Lifter Lifter

Drum Lifters / Depalletiser
Our most popular drum lifter model is the Side-Shift Drum Lifter (LSDTP04-Ex) as this is the most versatile unit. The other two options are our Corner Drum Lifter (LSDTP05-Ex) and our Counterbalance Drum Lifter (LSDTP08-Ex) which is particularly popular because it is narrow and useful for aisle work or placing drums onto scales.

ATEX Certification:
All ATEX units are suitable for use in a Zone 1 area and comply with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU for equipment intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres – CE Ex II 2 G D – Ex h IIB T4 Gb / Ex h IIIB T135°C Db.

ATEX Zone 1 LSDTP04-Ex Side-Shift Drum Lifter
The LSDTP04 is specially designed for moving drums and barrels from any position on a pallet. It uses a sliding side-shift arrangement allowing it to even remove containers placed in the centre of a pallet. The unit straddles the pallet and only requires access to one side, thus allowing pallets in confined areas to be kept against the wall even when unloading.

When moving the drum onto another pallet, scales, or the floor, the drum can also be moved to either side using the side-shift arrangement.
