HEALTH & SAFETY UPDATE

Tough Portable Fume & Dust Extractors and Confined Space Ventilators VAF Air Ltd, together with their sister company, Miniveyor Products Ltd, are specialist suppliers of confined space equipment to a diverse industry base globally. The VAF Air team has been involved in the supply of vane axial fans to the European market since the mid 1990’s and now the Miniveyor Air range of blowers, fans and ventilators has been established as a leading brand worldwide. VAF Air are the specialist ventilator division of Miniveyor Products and global distributors of the Miniveyor Air product range.

Tough Fans for tough jobs The vane axial fans and ventilators from VAF Air Ltd combine dependable power with practical design. Originally designed for the rental industry, every part is replaceable to keep the fans in service for longer. Available in 200mm, 300mm and 400mm diameters, their stackable design saves valuable floor or storage space, the large handles enable effortless manoeuvrability, and anti-skid rubber feet for steady operation. The VAF series fans work on both positive and negative airflow making them equally at home extracting fumes and dust or blowing fresh clean air into a confined workspace. The rugged design is durable and weather resistant.

Dual Wall Plastic Shell Maintenance is virtually eliminated with a dual-wall, high density plastic shell. Traditional metal bodied fans will get dinged and banged around. So will the VAF series fans but with one major difference. The metal fans do not absorb the dings and dents. The single layered, thin metal gauge walls will indent. This indent may, and usually does, obstruct the rotation of the fan blade. The fan blade will either stop or break. Either option becomes quite costly. If the unit can be repaired, the fan will be taken out of service while being maintained. Maintenance includes ripping out fan guts (i.e., grill, motor


HEALTH & SAFETY UPDATE

assembly, electrical wiring), pounding out the indents, replacing all necessary components and reassembling. Depending on the amount of damage, purchasing a new ventilator may be less expensive when considering labour repair hours. The double wall body construction of the VAF series fans is moulded from high density polythene that absorbs the ordinary ding or bang experienced in the field, eliminating the above-mentioned costly maintenance procedure. The plastic shell also makes the VAF-Series corrosion free. Once the paint on a metal gauge fan chips or scratches, rust becomes inevitable. If appearance is a concern, then rust is a problem. Rust reduces metal life and is not attractive. The VAF-Series maintains its high-quality exterior finish regardless of use in humid, moist climates. The plastic shell also contains an ultraviolet stabiliser, or U.V. inhibitor which means exposure to continuous sunlight rays will not discolour the unit.

Lightweight: The VAF-Series plastic ventilators are lighter than the traditional metal bodied fans. With a built-in, centrally located handle design, the ventilator is quite portable on any job site. Compared to metal gauge ventilators, our high powered, low weight plastic ventilator is easily carried reducing chances of back injury.

Intrinsically Safe Option The air driven VAF-300P-FRL & VAF-400P-FRL portable ventilators are built to provide maximum power where it is needed and are the ideal confined space exhaust fan for applications where you need an intrinsically safe blower. They come pre-fitted with a filter regulator and lubricator to minimise the need to purge and lubricate the air motor after use. Like the rest of the VAF series, they both work on both positive and negative airflow and is at home either extracting dust and fumes or blowing clean air into a workspace. Combine these air driven blowers with VAF’s anti-static ducting for a complete solution.

DispenserONE®:

The ‘Fit and Forget’ sanitizer system

After 18 months during which hand hygiene was thrust into the spotlight like never before, SEKO’s groundbreaking DispenserONE® sanitizer system – purpose-designed in response to coronavirus – has transformed the way building managers deliver hand hygiene. But disposable and conventional light-duty sanitizer systems have been on the market for decades, so why the need to replace them? Such systems were adequate in the pre-COVID world, with their basic pump mechanism and low capacity capable of meeting low demand which was limited to hospitals, doctors’ surgeries and other healthcare sites. However, when COVID arrived and the need for hand sanitizer systems increased, these light-duty devices were expected to deal with constant, widespread use despite their limitations. The sight of a pelican pump, usually placed on a countertop or small table at a building entrance, has become common during the pandemic as managers attempt to deliver COVID-secure arrangements. As well as being unhygienic due to their manual operation, pump-action devices are messy, unsightly and unsafe as they leak and leave sanitizer dripping onto the surface and floor where they may create a slip hazard. An alternative to disposable dispensers are lightduty refillable systems mounted to walls and stands, which also splash and leak due to their primitive pump design. These units require regular repair and, ultimately, replacement after around six months on average. For building operators, this results in constant cleaning, refilling, repairing and replacement of dispensers – increasing staff workload and incurring hidden costs. From these limitations, the DispenserONE® range was born, as the SEKO R&D team worked to create a series of “fit and forget” systems to provide hassle-free, yet highly-effective infection control in any building. Built around an ultra-reliable motor-driven pump, DispenserONE® provides a consistently smooth, soft flow of sanitizer and because residual product remains within the mechanism once dosing is completed, the system is completely leak-free. The high-capacity DispenserONE® is an operator’s dream in that it requires zero maintenance during opening hours, with the only requirements an occasional out-of-hours refill and, in the case of the battery-powered models, recharge.

This means that, once installed, DispenserONE® can be left in service without the need to constantly refill or clean around the unit, its presence offering reassurance not only to the user, but to the building manager who can have complete faith in their hand hygiene arrangements. SEKO’s range covers every building requirement for hand hygiene, ensuring devices are properly sized with a capacity suited to footfall, starting with DispenserONE® Mini which offers a super-slim profile and minimal footprint that make it ideal for convenience stores, beauty salons and other sites where space is at a premium. For the largest sites including international airports, conference centre and sports stadia there’s the original DispenserONE®, a high-capacity, mainspowered unit delivering up to 25,000 doses between refills and an optional 17” multimedia screen. Recognizing the ever-changing coronavirus restrictions around the world, SEKO has also developed DispenserONE® Thermoscan, which allows building managers to control entry depending on combinations of criteria such as sanitizer use, body temperature and face covering. As well as providing peace of mind to the operator over infection control, this model gives residents, staff and visitors confidence at a time when many are anxious over the lifting of restrictions. Adding to this the system’s IoT-enabled remote connectivity, customizability and optional multimedia screen, DispenserONE® earns its place as the ultimate hand-hygiene product for 2021 and beyond.

Strategic Partnerships: Precast & Preformed Troughs & Fibrelite’s ‘Made to Measure’ GRP Covers

Custom Fibrelite covers installed in precast concrete manufacturer Trenwa’s troughs at major US sub-station

Concrete slab covers can weigh as much as five times the weight of an equivalent size Fibrelite GRP composite trough cover

Composite access cover manufacturer Fibrelite has formed strategic partnerships with a number of major manufacturers of precast and preformed troughs (also known as trenches, channels and ducts) in Europe and the USA (including Fibex and Trenwa) to create new collaborative product offerings integrating Fibrelite covers and precast and preformed troughs, combining the strength and longevity of precast and preformed troughs with the easy, safe manual removal and durability of Fibrelite’s lightweight composite covers Health and safety issues surrounding manual handling are of paramount importance to site managers. Without the necessary provision of dedicated lifting apparatus and training for operatives, traditional concrete and steel trough access covers can be a concern due to their sheer weight. Concrete slab covers can weigh as much as five times the weight of an equivalent size Fibrelite GRP composite trough cover. Fibrelite covers have an industry leading strength-toweight ratio and are designed to be safely and easily removed by two people, using the Fibrelite FL7 ergonomically designed lifting handles. Driven by focusses on health and safety, weight, durability (no corrosion) and reduced installation time, GRP composite access covers have moved from being a niche product used on petrol station forecourts to being specified at the outset of new build and retrofit projects for some of the world’s most prestigious brands in technology, data centres, ports, airports, high-tech manufacturing facilities, utilities, infrastructure and many more.

Fibrelite trough covers are designed to be safely and easily removed by two people

we’ve continually innovated, focussing on creating solutions to industry and customer challenges.” Commented Jo Stott, Fibrelite’s Marketing Director “Partnering with precast and preformed trough/trench manufacturers was a logical next step, and I’m proud to say that, since we created our first partnership offering with Trenwa in 2014 we now have over 50 kilometres of our covers installed in precast and preformed troughs across the globe” David Holmes, Fibrelite’s Technical Director added “We work closely with architects, contractors, and end users from tender stage right the way through to delivery and even installation where required. This collaborative process ensures that the supplied product fulfils both product quality demands and strict project completion deadlines. Fibrelite covers can be custom designed and manufactured with dimensions matched precisely to specified trough opening/rebate dimensions (Fibrelite’s adjustable tooling allows covers to be manufactured within millimetres of a clients requirement)”

Recent Installation: New Build Data Centre, Northern Europe Some clients favour a complete GRP solution for both troughs and covers. Where appropriate, this can further reduce installation costs and time due to their reduced weight for transit and installation. Earlier this year, Fibrelite engineered and manufactured 550 metres of custom trough covers for a new build data centre in Northern Europe. These GRP preformed troughs were supplied with custom fit Fibrelite bolt-down covers, for added security.

Recent Installation: Cruise Ship Terminal, UK

Fibrelite custom engineered and manufactured 500 metres of F900 (90-tonne) load rated GRP trough covers to fit precast concrete troughs at a UK cruise ship Custom Fibrelite covers designed and engineered to fit manufacturer Fibex’s terminal. The stepped covers were supplied in a number of preformed GRP troughs customised sizes to fit the trough configuration. The F900 load rated covers were stepped to reduce the unit weight “In recent years, the demand for highly customisable, high- in compliance with the customer’s specified manual tech access covering solutions has grown exponentially, and handling limit. we’re proud of the part we’ve played in their adoption over the 40 years since we invented the world’s first.
