Explosion proof aerial work platforms are specifically designed for use in hazardous locations where any type of spark could cause an explosion. Typical work environments include munitions preparation, refueling, painting and blasting. Lift equipment requirements are governed by NFPA 505, Fire Safety Standard for Powered Industrial Trucks, NFPA 70, National Electrical Code and UL583-EX, Safety Standard for Electric-Battery Powered Industrial Trucks. All models have been recently redesigned and certified to the latest standards. Significant changes in the area of Intrinsically Safe Controls have allowed the reduction of hydraulic hoses and fittings reducing the potential of leak points and required maintenance.
