Intrinsically safe exhaust fans are used by responders during rescue operations to ventilate confined spaces or enclosed areas with contaminated atmospheres. Intrinsic safety is achieved by making certain that only low voltages and current enter hazardous areas, ensuring there is no ignition hazard.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Intrinsically Safe Exhaust Fans are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
