Explosion Proof


STS Pneumatic Stacker


When the risk of explosion is particularly great, there’s only one solution: Explosion-Proof Forklift Trucks from Sichelschmidt GmbH.

All Sichelschmidt EX-protected trucks have been designed from the outset for operation in potentially explosive zones and not simply “converted” from a non-ex truck. As Sichelschmidt does not adapt existing machines, users can be assured of the utmost performance and safety levels. Each individual component – from the motor to the brakes and the forks – is specifically constructed to rule out any risk of explosion.

Sichelschmidt electric forklifts from the ex-protected range are all tested and certified by the stated relevant authority (e.g. by the Physical Technical Federal Establishment in Braunschweig/ the PTB or the TÜV North CERT), and for the USA and Canada come with a Factory Mutual (FM) stamp of approval.
