    What books do you need specifically? Can you list them?

    I doubt I will have them but I have a look around when I have a few minutes.

    Hazardous Locations - Inverter installations

    Hi Guys

    Please can you clear a question for me, in the SANS 10142 code book, Page 266/267 on hazardous locations, My question is, Does a garage or a room the houses batteries for an Inverter make it a Hazardous location even with good ventilation?
