Hazardous Area Classifications
A Hazardous Area Classification (HAC) is intended to identify hazards areas as defined under the electrical code.
General Definition of Hazardous Locations:
Hazardous locations can be defined as areas where flammable liquid, gases or vapours or combustible dusts exist in sufficient quantities to produce an explosion or fire. In hazardous locations, specifically designed equipment and special installation techniques must be used to protect against the explosive and flammable potential of these substances.
