How do you ensure the safety of a platform in an EX / ATEX environment?

mai 01, 2024

When there is a risk in an ATEX Zone, it is essential to implement very specific measures to prevent an explosion.

These preventive measures must be employed in all technical and organisational aspects of the zone concerned. This applies equally to the mobile tools used, the work clothing and the fixed installations on site.

However, the presence of an ATEX Zone must not hinder the implementation of appropriate protective measures for operators working in the area.  Therefore, to ensure the safe transfer of loads between different levels and on a platform, it is always necessary to install a safety pallet gate. So how do you go about it?

It is essential to check first that the equipment is never separated from the specified earth point. In order to comply with standards and prevent any risk of electrostatic ignition, it is essential to earth the conductive metal parts. It is therefore necessary to equip the barrier with electrical continuity.
To meet these requirements, AC2M offers safety gates adapted to the ATEX environment and fitted with welded studs through which the earth braids pass, thus ensuring earthing and electrical continuity.  In this way, equipotentiality of the installations is guaranteed.

In any case, it is impossible to ensure adequate protection against the risks of ATEX explosions without prior training of all personnel. The key terms in prevention are information, understanding and apprehension of the risks.

AC2M, boiler works specialising in making loading areas safe: be safe!

mars 12, 2024

Equipment for work at height
What does AC2M do?
AC2M is a metalworking and boiler-making company specialising in the safety of pallet loading areas on platforms and access to tanks.

What does AC2M offer to make industrial sites safe?
We have designed our own range of equipment for securing areas at height. The purpose of afety pallet gates is to secure areas where pallets pass from the groundfloor to platforms. They recreate the continuity of the guardrail around the unloading area, with different movements depending on their design: tilting, sliding, lifting, etc. They are produced as standard or made-to-measure versions to suit the environment in which they are installed. For access to tanks and/or containers, we offer both fixed and mobile solutions.
Folding stairways are installed on the building or an island in a "fixed version". They are designed to ensure the safety of operators when accessing the dome of tanks or road or rail containers. They recreate a guardrail around the dome and adapt to the configuration of the tank. We also produce access stairs and access platforms.
Mobile safety ladders provide mobile access to tank and container domes. These are simple solutions for safe working at height.

Who is AC2M equipment designed for?
The products are designed for industrial companies, local authorities and any structure that faces a risk related to safety at height.

What's new for AC2M?
AC2M is committed to good environmental practice (selective sorting - reuse of packaging, etc.). This way, the company has been awarded the "ECO-DEFIS" label. AC2M is also committed to training and helping young people, people undergoing professional retraining and people facing social challenges.
The company has just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

AC2M celebrates its 25th anniversary

février 19, 2024

A quarter of a century already, and yet the spirit of the company has remained young!

Since it was founded in 1998 in Jargeau, AC2M has come a long way, with two co-managers, Aurélien COUDRAT and Damien NAUDIN, taking over the business in 2011, followed by a move to Dry in 2013.

Today, AC2M is a small, dynamic team of around ten employees. The company specialises in making work on tanks and lorries safer (folding walkway and mobile ladder) and in handling loads between different levels (safety lock gate). It also has other areas of expertise, such as metalwork and boiler making, enabling it to manufacture customised parts and carry out repairs on site.

The latest addition to the services offered by AC2M is water jet cutting, which has been available since 2021. This is an environmentally-friendly process for cutting different materials, up to 200 mm thick, with unrivalled precision and quality.

Concerned about environmental and humanitarian issues, AC2M has implemented a policy to reduce its carbon footprint and supports various local and national associations.

The objective for the next 25 years? "To maintain the caring spirit of the small business," say the two co-managers. "To continue to evolve and improve our efficiency so that we can find innovative solutions for our customers.

AC2M focuses on reducing its carbon footprint

février 01, 2024

Since 2013, the Éco-défis label ("eco challenges") has been rolled out in several regions and awarded by the French Chamber of Crafts (CMA), in partnership with local authorities, to highlight the concrete actions taken by craftspeople to protect the environment.

The Eco-Challenges bring together a large number of businesses to take simple, eco-responsible action.

Concerned about its carbon footprint, AC2M has joined the Eco-Challenge initiative in 2019 by respecting short production and supply circuits. AC2M uses local suppliers, not only to support the regional economy, but above all to reduce the long-distance transport of goods and make responsible purchases. In terms of waste management, AC2M has opted for a policy of selective sorting and recycling of materials.

As we say at AC2M, because we only have one planet!

The entire range of products designed to ensure operator safety on platforms (safety loading gates, pallet gates) or tanks (folding stairways, safety mobile ladders) is manufactured in a short circuit in its workshops at Dry (Centre region in France).

AC2M is also part of the French Fab community, the network of French industrial excellence, launched in 2017 by Bruno Lemaire, Minister for the Economy, and designed to showcase French craftsmanship.
