What are ATEX Phones?

ATEX mobile phones are intrinsically safe mobile devices used by professionals working in hazardous areas, such as the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, petrochemical industry, home heating industry, oil, and gas industry, and other related fields, offering strong resistance to explosions and other hazardous occurrences.

They combine the best features of walkie talkies smartphones but designed to be used in the most hazardous of environments. Particularly with the way that insurance companies scrutinise a working environment, you want to make sure that the communication systems you and your staff use are of the highest safety standards.

We particularly recommend ATEX phones for drivers of hazardous materials like home heating oil, chemicals, and raw materials. This role is sometimes overlooked, but is very much a weak link in the safety chain that is your business supply lines. Don’t put your drivers, or the public, at risk from using a phone that isn’t fit for purpose.

ATEX mobile phones are built to specific requirements, offering a complete solution for mobile workers and other individual customers. They are built to resist water and dust ingress, with robust battery life, ensuring their durability while under usage. Such mobile devices are purposely built for dangerous work areas, particularly areas vulnerable to explosions.

All our ATEX phones come with a safety certificate for extra peace of mind.
