At SA Equip we have one goal: helping hard-working customers have their site up and running, and then job completed, as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible.
A tip we often pass on to clients? Full-certified equipment in your work area reduces the need for hot-work permits or standby men.
Let us examine how this works using power equipment as an example…
Power Distribution and Hot-Work Permits
Taking time to choose purpose-made, certified equipment with advanced safety features is a great step towards creating a safe working area more easily.
We recommend the SA POWERNET EX Mains Distribution Unit, an ultra-robust piece of portable equipment offering welding sockets with 10 metres of input cable, simply because it is packed with safety specification:
• Zones 1 and 2 (gas)
• Tough and durable
• Full MCB protection
• Easy to transport
• Waterproof and dustproof
• Internal safety shield
In short: the unit offers power where it is needed with no hot-work permit or standby man, meaning it can pay for itself in days.

Safer Sites and Your Equipment: Also Recommended
Our options to help avoid the need for hot-work permits also extends to a range of purpose-made equipment.
Four power supply essentials to consider for quicker, easier work area set-up:
ATEX approved (Zones 1 and 2, 21 and 22) transportable transformer with a capacity of no less than 3.8KVA. Continuously rated, the PNLT will deliver 110v or 230v power supply wherever you need it.
A composite box mounted via shock absorbers onto a marine-grade steel frame, with a special internal chassis securing the internal components. The result is a phenomenally rugged electrical transformer, but with no compromise on portability.
ATEX compliant, tough and durable, compatible and supplied ready to use. Built to last and both waterproof & dustproof. This means that it can be used in hazardous environments including Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 21 & Zone 22 classified areas.
Access four 16A socket outlets in any environment. The rugged, waterproof and dustproof design makes our box practically indestructible, and it's supplied ready for use in full 'plug-and-play' state.
