Made of plastic coated sheet steel and resistant to degrada- tion, the stores off er 75mm insulation supported by a fully welded base acting as a leak proof sump over the entire fl oor. There is high and low fl ame arrested ventila- tion and grid fl ooring plus a secure Yale lock with internal override; the overall design complies with BS476 for fi re rating. www.safetyunlimited.co.uk Empteezy SE-VTS-1 Tank Shower Spill containment and spill control industry expert Empteezy has had its SE-VTS-1 emergency tank shower approved by both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the three European Standardisation Organisa- tions (CEN, CENELEC, ETSI). With a 2,000 litre capacity, the tank shower distributes 75.7 litres of temperature regulated water per minute for 15 minutes, providing a comprehensive safety clean for workers when where a constant water supply or adequate water pressure is unavailable. www.empteezy.co.uk Honeywell BW Clip4 The BW Clip4 from Honey- well is a new portable gas monitor that once turned on can operate continu- ously for two years without the need to change sensors or charge batteries. Ideal for wastewater and confi ned space applications, it pro- vides simultaneous moni- toring of four gases – H2S, CO, O2 and combustibles (LEL). Using non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology, previously available only in fi xed-gas detectors, the BW Clip4 consumes 1,000 times less battery power than a catalytic bead (pellis- tor) sensor, the traditional technology used to detect fl ammable gases in a port- able device. honeywellanalytics.com OTHER TOP PICKS FOR SAFETY Next month: communications and control THE DETAILS Honeywell DuraHoist 3Pod ● Tripod for confi ned space underground workers ● EN795 class B compliant ● Adapts to manholes of 1m, 1m50 or 2m50 in diameter ● Leg width of 1m45 ● Folds up for easy transport in small vehicles ● Li s workers up to 140kg in weight What it is: The DuraHoist 3Pod from Honeywell is a single tripod solution which can be adjusted to meet the needs of workers operating in sewers and other confi ned space situations.
