Default HOT Standard Atmospheres

Considering that the Life Zone of a planet is generally thought to be where liquid water is present on the surface, so 0C to 100C or so.

This means one could conceive of a world that's too hot for humans to live unassisted, but would have a completely acceptable atmosphere were it cooled down.

I was thinking of a planet whose surface temperature might approach 60C or so, which is too hot for most life on Earth to live, but the planet might have a full and vibrant ecosystem.

I don't know how to characterize a world like that using Traveller rules? WOuld it be a "B" atmosphere, it's not corrosive, but it would require a cooling suit to walk around in, and would need ot have a partially sealed environment whith powerful air conditioning in order ot survive, unless one was in the arctic regions or on top of a tall mountain?
