Atex Category 1 areas are those where flammable material is present for long periods of more than 1,000 hours per year. This is considered a high-risk environment and, under the 1996 Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals), you must warn your staff and visitors of this potential risk to their safety. These danger explosive atmosphere signs are ideal for placing in certain areas of workplaces such as construction sites, laboratories and factories where there may often be explosives present. These essential signs enable your staff and visitors to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves.

These important signs conform to all current legislation so that you can rest assured you are taking the necessary legal precautions to protect the people that use your facility. The signs are supplied bearing a clear message in black text on a yellow background and contain a black pictogram within a yellow warning circle for added clarity, so that the sign becomes instantly associated with the presence of danger. Because of the severity of the warning, there is also red text clarifying the definition of Atex 1 environments.

These danger signs can be used in a variety of environments and are built to withstand areas where chemicals are present without eroding, melting or fading.

We also stock our danger explosive atmosphere signs for other types of explosive environments, such as Atex Category 2 and Atex Category 3, which are both for areas of lower risk. All of our signs are made from a choice of tough materials – choose from a hard-wearing vinyl with a self-adhesive backing, or a water-resistant plastic. Both are suitable for use either indoors or outdoors.
