November 2020 Industrial Update

Welcome to October and as my mother used to say White Rabbits three times before midday would bring you luck! If you missed it do not worry as I gather it does not matter which month it is.

With 15 million unemployed across Europe due the Covid-19 and its effects, industries are under pressure to try and get their staff safely back to work and with the furlough scheme due to finish this month along with Brexit it’s going to be a feature packed 32 days.

On a less important note Merlin have added the 10-year guaranteed handles to the Online shop. Click on the picture to see the prices.

New for the shop and also Covid-19 related are the touchpads, an ingenious method of dispelling virus killing gel only when you touch the door.

These do need recharging once depleted though prices are affordable, and they should also be available from the shop soon or call 01752 690622 and ask for Georgina who has trialled the pads and knows everything.

Have you “Bin” outside?

Bubble bin at work in Europe 800

Popular in Europe, especially Germany the Bubble Bin is now available within the UK with 360 and 600 litres capacity.

Two notable additions for October are the Oil Windows and Machine mounts.

Machine Feet and Anti-vibration mounts

These anti-vibration machine mounts have been used by our sister company Meddings, for nearly 50 years to prevent vibration and also offer a levelling method for a wide range of machine tools. We can now offer this direct to companies and manufacturers in the UK and some popular mounts are shown below.

That wraps up the news for the beginning of October 2020, and we hope that everyone stays safe and finds some solace in the days to come.

‘Cloakrooms should not form part of or be open to circulation spaces… Lockers made from materials of limited combustibility should be provided’ 

(Building Bulleting 100: Design for fire safety in schools)

School Lockers

This advice from The Department of Education applies to all new school builds.
Older buildings and those with growing pressure on space can’t always accommodate separate cloakrooms.

So what can schools do to minimise their risk?

If cloakrooms can’t be moved from corridors a school will need to install
lockers to store clothing and personal items, to prevent this fire risk.

Lockers help protect combustible materials which slow the progress of a fire.

They have added the benefit of discouraging vandalism and arson, which are responsible for around half of all school-time fires.

Express Steel Lockers

You can now get our most popular lockers delivered in 5 working days

which ties in perfectly for the fast-approaching end of the school year.
