The Company



The ExZone logoThe Ex Zone manufactures and distributes a wide range of explosion proof hazardous area equipment to the oil, petrochemical, gas and chemical industries around the world.

We design, manufacture and supply innovative, quality built hazardous area equipment and control systems built to EEx-d (explosion proof), EEx-e (increased safety) and EEx-p (purged) protection concepts.


With over twenty years’ experience in meeting the needs of leading operators of both onshore and offshore sites, we are able to offer the highest levels of technical competence and expertise.This is complemented by a real in-depth understanding of product installations, standards and working practices.

We operate to ISO 9001 quality standards, and all our equipment and systems are accredited to worldwide ATEX and IECEx directives. These comply with the latest standards, are supplied with full documentation, declaration of conformity and backed up by a comprehensive technical support team.

We also provide a full consultancy service to help our customers achieve the most appropriate electrical and engineering designs to meet their budget and timescale.

Established in 2003 The Ex Zone specialise in the design and manufacture of Atex certified hazardous area control systems to companies all over the world. By having our own in house design team means we can offer a totally bespoke service to exacting standards.

Not only do we build new systems, but we can also re-manufacture/re-commission existing equipment, and at the same time make any alterations or modifications. Based just 2 minutes from a mainline station, 10 minutes from the M25 and only 20 minutes from Heathrow airport means we benefit from excellent transportation links.

Our close relationships with key manufacturers, and with extensive stocks of parts mean we can generally turn around your projects much quicker than any of our competitors.
