Spring 2018; Spill containment specialist Empteezy is launching an array of new products which are tailored to meet the requirements of working environments from industrial and commercial to military, marine and educational.
Among the new additions are galvanised steel pallets, secure economy walk-in stores and three sizes of secure storage boxes to the Chemstor® range.
The incorrect storage and/or poor management of liquids can have far reaching consequences for the environment, health, safety and a business’ bottom line and, although the four sets of UK Oil Storage Regulations are among the most highly publicised regulations currently in force, it’s all too easy to forget that all liquids pose a potential threat to health, safety and the environment if not properly handled and stored.
As an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 accredited manufacturer of spill containment and spill response products, Empteezy is always innovating to enable its clients to be compliant and responsible.
New product range
1. For drum and IBC storage applications where polyethylene spill pallets might not be suitable, Empteezy now offers four sizes of spill pallet manufactured from 2mm structural grade galvanised steel which are fully compliant with all current UK regulations in relation to sump capacities (not less than 110% of the largest container’s storage capacity or 25% of their aggregate storage capacity, whichever is the greater) and are fitted with galvanised legs to make positioning by pallet truck or fork lift easy and to ensure the underside of the sump doesn’t come into contact the ground.
2. For applications where it is necessary to store smaller containers of liquid in a fully contained store with easy access for staff, Empteezy has launched three sizes of fully bunded economy walk-in stores to complement its existing Chemstor® walk-in store range.
Manufactured using cold rolled corrugated galvanised steel panels with additional strength coming from a structural frame fitted at each end and to the centre of the unit, access is via double doors located in one of the ‘short’ sides.
Each door is fitted with three upper and three lower vents and the doors are secured with a Kale mortis lock with cylinder (152 R). Inside there are two sets of shelves (60 kg/shelf distributed load) fitted on each of the ‘long’ side and the sump is manufactured from 2mm structural grade galvanised steel and is fitted with base plinths to keep the underside out of contact with the ground. There are also fork hoops to act as guides when moving the unit by fork lift truck.
3. Finally, Empteezy has added three sizes of secure storage boxes to the Chemstor® range. Fitted with twin KALE 156 F safety mortise locks, applications for these storage boxes aren’t limited to the safe storage of small containers of liquids and they are ideal for applications where security is also an issue and model CS9 comes complete with a shelf. Manufactured from structural grade steel with a 2mm wall thickness sumps these Chemstor® storage boxes are fully compliant with all regulations for the safe storage of chemicals and flammables and all models are finished with electro-static powder coat paint for a tough and durable finish.
Commenting on these latest additions to the Empteezy portfolio, UK Sales Manager Ben Seddon said: “Our aim is to always find the right products for the customer’s specific application and these new products provide us with the tools to ensure they get just what they need, the really exciting thing is that this is just the start of a whole raft of new product launches this year, all designed to help our customers and strengthen our standing in this marketplace”.
