Hart’s first order of ATEX shutters for Oman
Hart Door Systems has recently begun work on its first order from Oman for four highly specialist ‘ATEX’ shutters for compliance with regulations relating to environments with a risk of explosion.
John Loftus, Manager of International Estimations at Hart, commented: “ATEX doors are designed to eliminate all sources of ignition when in operation, allowing safe use in hazardous environments. These hazards can include dust, waste products such as wood shavings, gas and vapour.”
Hart’s success came from its relationship with G4S – Oman, which is working on a high security government project in Oman.
Mr Sumit Arora, Managing Director at G4S commented: “These are exciting times and I am looking forward to developing this relationship which will be mutually beneficial for both organisations.”
