Leaking roofs and ceilings in a professional environment can pose a serious risk to the health of your personnel and customers, as well as a costly impact on valuable equipment and goods. Ideally, you should aim for a permanent fix, but if that’s going to take a long time, then you need something better than a bucket to catch the drips.

Slips, trips and falls are the most common type of workplace accident, so having a puddle of water or a bucket in a walkway is simply not acceptable. Don’t forget, it is your responsibility to ensure that the risk of accidents is minimised.

Machinery and equipment are also at risk, as water damage could damage them leading to costly repairs and downtime.

Leak Diverters are the Solution

By using Leak Diverters, you can minimise the impact of water damage and eliminate wet floors caused by leaking ceilings. These easy-to-use kits are comprised of a tarpaulin, a hose and a storage drum. The tarp is fitted to the ceiling around the leak area, collecting the water and funnelling it into the hose. This then takes the water to the storage drum, which can be placed discreetly away from view or out of walkways, minimising both the visual impact and the health and safety risk.

Midlands based industrial equipment supplier First Mats is excited to introduce their fantastic new range of leak diverters. These complete kits include everything you need, with top quality components like hefty 80 litre collection reservoirs, hoses which take standard U.K. Hozelock fittings (in case the included 5 metre hose is not long enough) and adjustable hanging straps to ensure you can fit the tarp exactly where you need it. The tarps themselves are available in four different sizes ranging from 100cm x 100cm through to 300cm x 300cm, and a choice of either a distinct yellow or a more subtle white, which is well suited to customer facing areas.

As well as the complete kits, First Mats also supply the individual components, allowing for a more tailored approach. Kits are very easy to install, with no special training required.

As with all First Mats products, the leak diverter kits are supplied with free delivery (for all orders over £45) across mainland U.K., typically within two to four business days, and are backed up with the excellent customer service levels that have garnered the company an enviable 4.8 out of 5 rating on TrustPilot.
