Fume cupboards with ejector technology or sash? The technology comparison.
In many laboratories, classic fume cupboards with front sash are used. In practice, however, working behind the pane often means considerable compromises. The alternative is called ejector technology: we have compared both systems and show you which one is ahead.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety.

With a full line of floor marking tools and other work safety equipment, DENIOS UK offers an excellent selection of anti-slip mat linings.
Floor coverings in manufacturing or research areas are designed to last for a particularly long time and also for easy cleaning. Unfortunately, just because floor surfaces are easy-to-clean and resistant to wear does not automatically mean they are safe. Many laboratory or industrial floor coverings are made of metal, tiles, PVC or other plastics. Even when they are dry, there is frequently a risk of slipping on such surfaces.
DENIOS UK offers a broad range of non-slip coverings for bonding and painting. Your specific industrial operations will determine which type of application is most appropriate. Self-adhesive anti-slip strips are the most common, as you can cut them to size and quickly and easily apply them to the appropriate surface. Stair steps or uneven surfaces are typical places to apply these anti-slip strips.
For large surfaces, such as in front of shelves or in certain zones, there are instances where paintable, anti-slip coverings are particularly suitable. Much like commercial exterior paints, you can apply anti-slip marking paint with a roller, let it harden and then allow access to the painted areas.
A clear advantage of both products is that they are available in striking colours, including black, yellow and white.
DENIOS UK supplies a range of anti-slip strips. They are available in rolls of various lengths, allowing you to cut the strips to the appropriate size to meet your needs. They are available in black, yellow and white, and several extra-strong versions are available. They are resistant to water, oil, cleaning agents and solvents. DENIOS UK also offers several versions of extra-wide anti-slip strips for creating slip-resistant walkways in industrial and research work areas.
