Our line of non-sparking safety tools consists of hammers, flange wedges, striking wrenches, impact sockets, screwdrivers, shovels and other hand tools. They comply with ATEX Directives for Ex Zones 0, 1 and 2 (Flammable Gas, Mists or Vapors); Zones 20, 21 and 22 (Combustible Dusts); and M1 and M2 for mining. Each tool is laser engraved with the proper Ex Zone classifications, indicating the zones for which it can be used.

Aluminum Bronze and Copper Beryllium Non-sparking Safety Tools from CS Unitec are specifically designed to eliminate the risk of sparks at sites where explosive atmospheres may be present.

Appropriate applications include oil drilling platforms, petrochemical plants,
oil refineries, natural gas installations, ammunition plants, varnish factories, sugar refineries, grain silos, mining and other industries where non-sparking safety tools are required. The non-magnetic feature of these alloys also makes them ideal for working on special machinery with powerful magnets such as MRI machines, military de-mining and explosives.

CS Unitec's safety tools are drop forged for the highest quality in hand tools. These corrosion-resistant tools are suitable for use in shipyards, laboratories, and paper and pulp mills, as well as in the pharmaceutical, food product manufacturing and wine industries.

We also offer ATEX-approved air and hydraulic power tools for use in Ex zones.
