Another few months have passed and it’s time for another update…
It is proving to be a very busy year with much activity and investment in the cleanroom industry throughout Europe, this together with a new showroom and a string of new product launches has given us plenty to talk about over the next few months.
The summer has now arrived and due to popular demand we have decided to extend our ‘Summer Sizzler’ BBQ offer until the end of August, a small ‘thank-you’ in appreciation for your continued business and an encouragement to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Many thanks to all who responded to the last edition of our newsletter, your feedback is always very much appreciated.

LED PERFORMANCE UPDATE
Flat Panel Vs. Astra LED
The use of cheap, untested and unreliable flat panel luminaires for installation into cleanroom projects has proven they are totally unsuitable for these types of applications, resulting in premature failures and high maintenance costs.
We have designed an informative brochure to warn of the dangers and how to identify if your chosen luminaires meet the required European standards for installation into clean/controlled environments. We have used the Astra LED Senator luminaire as a point of comparison.
The booklet outlines a 9 point check for choosing a suitable luminaire for your next project including, checking its energy efficiency (LL/CW), fire ratings, sustainability and reliability (L90/B10).
Make sure you don’t install untested, unsafe luminaires into your next cleanroom project.
NEW PRODUCT RANGE - RAISED ACCESS FLOORING
We understand the demands of cleanroom facilities and the Raised Access Flooring requirements for semiconductor, pharmaceutical and data centre applications.
Each panel is die-cast, milled and finished to a high specification that exceeds all the requirements of controlled environments.
For optimum room configuration and flexibility, the range of panels and gratings are completely interchangeable.
