Area Zoning

A hazardous area is a location where flammable gases, liquids, dusts, or fibres are present, and there is a risk of fire or explosion. Hazardous areas are commonly found in industries such as petrochemical, oil and gas, mining, chemical processing, and others where flammable gases, liquids, dusts, or fibres are present. Specific examples of hazardous areas include oil and gas production facilities, refineries, chemical plants, gas processing plants, loading docks, pump rooms, grain storage facilities, flour mills, woodworking plants, and more. Hazardous areas can also be found in certain types of manufacturing facilities, laboratories, and other settings where hazardous materials are present.

NOTE-Hazardous area classification and zoning are complex and technical subjects, and it is advisable to seek the assistance of a hazardous area specialist to ensure compliance with the relevant standards and regulations.

Nordland has a team of accredited Zoning specialists ready to assist you with your area zoning requirements.

Our team of specialists are not only accredited zoning specialists but also have extensive experience in the development and manufacture of Ex products and solutions for numerous applications and environments. Hence, they will also be able to assist you in assessing any specialized characteristics of the operating environment which may require unique product features to be incorporated into the luminaire design.

When doing an area zoning exercise, particularly in older application areas, we recommend that the team should also carry out a lighting survey and review the existing lighting infrastructure. Frequently we find that over a period of time the older installed lighting has become a mixture of different technologies and products and hence standardizing the lighting in a retrofit program can add significant benefits.
