Just been to quote for an odd job. Fella wants to do a car spraying business from home, in his double garage at the end of the garden. Wants ceiling and wall mounted lighting, provision for a 32A compressor, no mechanical air extraction, random sockets dotted about.

Am I right in thinking all this gear should be atex/ex ? I have zero qualification, knowledge, or experience in this area so bear with me. Is it my lookout as designer or his lookout as the customer as to what he finally uses the garage for as to what equipment is installed ?

He doesn't seem to have much of a clue about any requirements electrically or safety wise. He originally wanted me to use a 13A spur from the downstairs sockets for this lot, and was happy to use his existing lighting, vapour proof fittings minus lids on extension leads, for the finished job. I asked if his business insurance required EX rated equipment but he shrugged and looked confused like there wasn't going to be any insurance.

Not comfortable about even quoting for this at the minute.
