In an explosive (EX) environment, the atmosphere is loaded with flammable material. Whether it’s because of gas, vapor, mist, or dust, these environments come with a significant fire risk

Only a small spark can ignite the air, leading to a flare-up or explosion. At Barclay Brand Ferdon, we serve businesses in North and Central New Jersey, including Middlesex and Ocean counties, and select counties in New York with explosion-proof Excalibur Miretti forklifts. With a fleet of these forklifts, you can improve productivity and keep employees safe in EX environments.
