For over 35 years experience in Explosion Safety

About us

Artidor Explosion Safety B.V. was founded in 1986 and is specialized in the development and production of explosion-safe products. Thanks to our extensive knowledge of explosion safety and many years’ experience in engineering and R&D, Artidor is one of the most innovative companies in the market. Flexibility and quality are paramount in this.

In our well-equipped workshop, Artidor’s specialists design customized explosion-safe solutions, usually based on existing products. They ensure that all the original characteristics, such as the well thought-out design and the product’s ease of use and installation, are retained as much as possible. If necessary, also the ATEX and IECEx certification for the product is arranged through a Notified Body. A number of these unique explosion-safe products are introduced to the market as Artidor products and are available from stock.

As well as the custom solutions, Artidor develops and manufactures products for clients who put them on to the market under their private label. Thanks to our experience and systematic approach, these projects are well-managed and offer our clients new opportunities on the market.
