Only Four Weeks Left Until HazardEx 2018 – Are luminaires causing higher risks on Ex Areas because of LED?

Posted on: 1.2.2018

HazardEx – one of the most highly acclaimed events of the year – is fast approaching. Held on February 28th and March 1st at the Holiday Inn in Runcorn, Cheshire, this International Conference and Exhibition is dedicated to process industry specialists and companies operating in hazardous areas.

We are delighted to not only be exhibiting, but also delivering a white paper at the conference, enabling our focused thoughts and findings to be discussed with like-minded industry experts.

Make sure to visit Atexor at stand 15 where we will be sharing with attendees our sector expertise and experience as a leading designer and manufacturer of SLAM® portable EX-lighting and power distributions systems, whilst demonstrating our core service offering and capabilities.

Our Senior Technology Manager, Tarmo Rintala will be presenting the whitepaper at the conference focusing on the technical issues and safety standards required when designing luminaires containing LEDs. We are looking forward to sharing our facts – developed from extensive research – on the current safety standards surrounding luminaires containing LEDs which -to date – have seen many found non-compliant to required industry standards.

This event offers an abundance of opportunities for networking with attendees ranging from government agencies, regulators and certification bodies through to safety managers and senior engineers from the high hazard and process industries.

If you would like to arrange to meet up with one of our representatives at the event, please contact our Head of UK Sales, Derek Scott at or Our Senior Technology Manager, Tarmo Rintala at
