See Chapter 8.1 of the above link which has both German and English text. It uses:

Spaltbegrenzungsfläche = gap limiting surfache
zünddurchschlasgsicherer Spalt = spark protection gap

Must of course read "zünddurchschlagsicherer Spalt", apologies for the typo.

Gap on its own might be quite sufficient. Leuze uses "safe gap".

The maximum experimental safe gap is the gap of the test apparatus with a width of flameproof joint of 25 mm at which an internal ignition of an explosive mixture is not propagated to the exterior (IEC 60079-1-1).
