Hazardous Environment Lifts

Hazardous Environment Lifts

Typcially most standard Aerial Work Platforms manufactured in North American meet basic UL ratings and provide minimal protections agains Spark and Shock. In areas where increased protection is needed, NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) has type designations for the various equipment as identified in the table below:

Fuel Type and Special Design (if any) Type Designation
Electrical (Battery) E
Electrically powered unit that, in addition to meeting all the requirements for Type E units, is provided with additional safe-guards to the electric system to prevent the emission of hazardous sparks and to limit surface temperatures ES
Electrically powered unit that, in addition to meeting all the requirenenu for Type E and ES units, has it's electric motors and all other electric equipmmt completely enclosed EE
Gasoline G
Gasoline powered unit that, in addition to meeting all the requirements for Type G units, is provided with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel, and electric systems GS
Diesel D
Diesel with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel and electric systems DS
Diesel-powered unit in which the diesel engine and the electric fittings and equipment are so designed, coll!cructed, and assembled that the unit can be used in attmospheres that contain specifically named flammable vapors dusts, and, under cenrtain conditions, fibers DX
Diesel-powered unit and any electric equipment is completely enclosed and equipped with temperature-limitation fearures DY
LPG LP
LPG powered unit that is provided with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel, and electric systems LPS
CNG CN
CNG powered unit that is provided with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel, and electric systems CNS
Dual Fuel - Gasoline LPG G LP
A unit that operates on either gasoline or liquefied petroleum gasoline and is provided with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel and electric systems GS LPS
Dual Fuel - Gasoline CNG G CN
Unit that operates on either gasoline or compressed natural gas and, in addition to meeting all the requirements for Type G CN units, is provided with additional safeguards to the exhaust, fuel, and std electric systems GS CNS
Compressed Gaseous Hydrogen H2

Our team includes members that were on the NFP A (505) and UL (583) standards committees providing design input in the development of these standards. We have designed hundreds of lifts for hazardous locations and can design to most of these type designations.
