Commenting on Eclipse, Peppers Sales Manager Grayham Churchouse said;

“The Eclipse™ range of barrier gland products is entirely designed to ensure error free installation and on-site time saving. We’ve achieved this by using a simple resin retention seal and a hand operated cartridge incorporating a vortex mixing system which allows the installer to work confidently and effectively.

We observed that although there were other two part fast setting resin systems on the market, these systems did not allow for any inspection inside the sealing chamber.

Are you at risk? Nine shocking facts about Arc Flash you need to know!

You may know that you’re at risk of an Arc Flash incident, but when it comes to the severity and real dangers posed by such an incident, it rare that teams are fully in the loop.

These nine shocking facts shine a spotlight on the life changing risks an Arc Flash incident creates, but first, what exactly is an Arc Flash? Hamilton Smith, Technical Sales Manager at specialists in Arc Flash protective wear, ProGARM, explains:

An Arc Flash happens when an electrical discharge travels through the air and releases an intense burst of energy. This occurs when an electrical discharge or short circuit moves through the air as a result of voltage spikes, worn connections, cable strikes or gaps in insulation. This flash is capable of causing serious harm to anyone caught by it, but here are some of the less known, yet shocking (Read More)

Medical PPE Failings Reflect The Need For Vigilance

If PPE would be deployed effectively anywhere, you’d think it would be the medical sector. The need to shield medical personnel from contagions arguably outweighs the risks of particulates and contaminants that we face everyday. Yet two recent studies point to a shocking lack of expertise in how to use protective equipment.

In one study from last year, almost 80% of participants contaminated themselves while removing their PPE. In a smaller follow-up test, where participants were advised on the correct process, the percentage who contaminated themselves actually increased, although the contamination level was reduced.
