Our new specification guide features all 16 different cable protection solutions for use in Hazardous Areas. The guide makes it easy to correctly specify a system of both conduit and gland or fitting to match the nature and magnitude of the hazards faced. It is important to realise that different applications can be exposed to different hazards, so there is no one size fits all solution.

The 46-page guide highlights many of the potential hazards faced by cabling, using simple icons. It is focussed on product solutions for hazardous areas and features Flexicon’s range of Flameproof Barrier Glands with the latest IECEx, ATEX and CU-TR certification. It also features conduits for Hygienic applications and Flexicon’s new Stainless Steel annular corrugated conduit systems, FSS and FSSBRD for applications requiring inherent low fire hazard properties.
