SDC’s Explosion Proof Collection Eliminates Sparks in Hazardous Plant Locations

SDC’s Explosion Proof Collection is a series of door access & egress components all specially designed and explosion proof rated to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards. They provide safety, security and risk management in potentially hazardous locations typically found in Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Mining, Energy & Utilities, and Food & Beverage plants and facilities.

To meet the criteria for the explosion proof rating, each component enclosure must be able to contain any explosion originating within its housing and prevent sparks from within its housing from igniting vapors, gases, dust, or fibers in the air surrounding it. Additionally, these Explosion Proof Collection products also meet the temperature requirements of the specific application in which they are to be installed, per National Electric Code (NEC®) standards. Each component is labeled on its nameplate with the distinct classification in which it has been tested and approved for installation.

For other applications not susceptible to explosion from sparks, but requiring a fire-rated electric
strike/door release, check out SDC's UniFLEX™ 45 Fire Rated Electric Strike - the best
3-hour Fire Rated Strike on the market.
