Pro-ATEX 11

ATEXSemi-static rope type A, verified for usage in explosive atmospheres.
Verified for its usage in ATEX environments by Applus, satisfies the point 2.6 of the annex II of the regulation EU2016/425.

The rope allows a normal usage including the utilization of ascenders, descenders, fall arresters and even to make knots.

It has an inner structure of tinned copper, providing a great longitudinal electric conductivity. The special design of thisĀ copper structure achieves a good elasticity although being metallic, guaranteeing excellent performance as semi-static rope. Furthermore, it remains structurally integral, maintaining its conductivity even after having suffered impact loads.

The braided sheath incorporates numerous micro-capillaries of silver, which turns it in a capacitive material. The silver allows transporting any charge of static electricity from the exterior to the conductor material inside the rope. Through this, the electricity is driven out to ground thanks to the grounding included in the sawn terminals of the rope edges.

The charge transport is made inside theĀ rope, so keeping it away from the explosive environment. This eliminates the creation of static loads in the operator or around the rope. So, it is avoided any possible spark which could originate an ignition and a possible explosion.

By means of a multimeter, the operator can check the correct status of the rope for its usage in ATEX environments.
