English translation:carrying-over
Explanation:
It's not easy to translate this term directly, especially as I think it's not quite accurate to begin with. The described effect refers to carrying-over an explosive atmosphere from one area to another. Probably from a zone 0 (where the ex.atm. is permanently or very frequently present) to the mentioned zone 1 (ex.atm. possibly present). The zones themselves, however, are determined by a risk assessment and are in a sense iso-probability curves. If, then, the ex.atm. is carried over into a lower-risk zone (thus making it a higher-risk zone and imposing higher demands on the equipment in that area) e.g. by an imposed air flow, the initial risk assessment was apparently incorrect. So, in the end, it's not the zone that is 'verschleppt' but the explosive atmosphere.
