Two Way Radios for Hazardous Areas

Two Way Radios for Hazardous Sites - Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radios

Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radios are designed and guaranteed to not create a spark when dropped nor to emit an electrical charge when in operation. In layman's terms, Intrinsically Safe walkie talkies are often called explosion proof. Intrinsically safe two way radios are required on Oil Rigs, at Refineries, and in Confined Space workplaces where Gases or flammable dust might be present. Intrinsically safe two way radios may be a requirement of your Insurance Company, OSHA, or a standard industry practice.

Twowayradiocenter.com offers Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radios manufactured by Motorola. These intrinsically safe 2 way radios have been certified Intrinsically Safe by SGS Group, the World's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. All Intrinsically safe two way radios offered on Twowayradiocenter.com are certified by SGS to meet the requirements of ANSI/UL913 5th Edition for Class I, II, III Division 1; Groups C, D, E, F, & G Temp T3C hazardous locations.

Additionally, we offer Motorola branded accessories which are certified Intrinsically Safe when used with the corresponding Intrinsically Safe 2 way radio model. Please note, using aftermarket batteries or accessories branded as Intrinsically Safe voids the Motorola Intrinsically Safe Certifications they provide. This policy is strictly adhered too and there are no exceptions.

We Educate .... You Decide if Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radios are Right For You

Our Insurance Company has advised us to use explosion proof two way radios. Will these work? Yes, the 2 way radios in this category are all explosion proof or Intrinsically Safe as defined by OSHA.

Our Insurance Company has told us to purchase Factory Mutual Certified Intrinsically Safe two way radios. How are these different? SGS is an International Firm whereas Factory Mutual is a US Based company. In our experience, when Insurance Companies are shown the certification criteria used by SGS they typically approve these units for use. Get the forms and save some money as FM Certified two way radios are at least 25% more expensive than our comparable models.  Twowayradiocenter.com is happy to assist you with getting the appropriate documentation for your Insurance provider.  

We have no obligation to use Intrinsically Safe two way radios but think they are a good idea. Your thoughts? An Insurance Investigator told us if you're using an Intrinsically Safe two way radio you are inferring your knowledge of an inherent safety risk which can create a liability. Don't create liabilities for yourself you if you don't have too.

Can we mix Intrinsically Safe and non-Intrinsically Safe two way radios? You should never mix non-intrinsically safe two way radios with intrinsically safe two way radios as it voids the certification.  

How can we easily identify an Intrinsically Safe two way radio and an Intrinsically Safe Accessory? Motorola Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radios are identified by a blue sticker on the accessory connection point of the radio and by blue stickers on corresponding batteries or other accessories. Do not use an Intrinsically Safe Two Way Radio with a Non-Intrinsically Safe Accessory.
