Hypochlorite storage

Sodium hypochlorite storage systems from Poly Processing use carbon black, white or gray compound XLPE resin that dramatically reduces UV degradation of the chemical. To prevent the buildup of transition metals in the tank, the unit has an IMFO system that allows for full drainage of the tank. This can greatly increase the half-life of the chemical and the life of the tank.

The OR-1000 system allows four times the antioxidant strength of a normal polyethylene. It is made in a rotomolding process that creates a seamless bond between an inner surface of medium-density polyethylene and an outer surface of high-density crosslinked polyethylene. 866/590-6845; www.polyprocessing.com.

Dynarail fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) handrail systems from Fibergrate Composite Structures provide safety and comfort for workers on stairways, walkways and platforms. Combining corrosion resistance, long

life and a low-maintenance design, the railings do not become hot when exposed to the sun. Components are lightweight and easy to fabricate. Everything is provided to install OSHA- and IBC-compliant horizontal and inclined handrail systems with two or three rails. 800/527-4043; www.fibergrate.com.

Eye protection

Varsity eye protection from Gateway Safety has a V-shaped temple design and wraparound lens. Designed for indoor or outdoor use, its soft, adjustable nosepiece provides a custom fit and keeps glasses from slipping even when wet. It weighs less than 1 ounce and meets or exceeds ANSI Z87.1+ and CSA Z94.3 standards. It also blocks more than 99.9 percent of UV-A, B and C light. It is available with gray or clear temples and in lens colors including clear, gray, clear or gray anti-fog, amber, orange, vermillion. Mirror lenses are available in clear, silver, or blue. 800/822-5347; www.gatewaysafety.com.

Communications kit

Emergency lighting

The Max-Lite Series emergency lighting unit from Chloride Systems is designed for locations where oil-, water- and dust-resistant equipment is required. The device is certified to NSF Standard 2 Splash Zone and is UL listed for use in damp and wet locations in temperatures from 0 to 40 degrees C.

Standard Intelli-Charge self-diagnostic electronics monitor all critical functions, and optional self-testing satisfies monthly periodic testing requirements in NFPA 101 and the IBC. The system includes an onboard IR receiver and is pre-programmed for use with the company’s optional handheld test device, enabling remote testing to meet all applicable building code requirements.

The system includes maintenance-free sealed lead-calcium or nickel-cadmium batteries. 910/259-1000; www.chloridesys.com.

Fall protection

FabEnCo self-closing safety gates, available in aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel, are adjustable swinging gates for fall protection as required by OSHA at unprotected openings on ladders, platforms, stairs,

catwalks, mezzanines and machine guarding. Gates include the A Series (double-bar gate), XL Series (extended vertical coverage), R Series (metal alternative to replace old plastic gates) and Z Series (for new construction). Gates can be ordered in galvanized steel and safety yellow powder coat.

Easy to install on most types of handrails (angle, flatbar, pipe) or to existing walls, the gates save the time and money it takes to fabricate gates. Gates can be mounted on the left or right side of handrail openings, at different levels. Once the stop bolts have been adjusted, each gate’s stainless steel spring automatically closes the gate to the customizable stop point set on the gate — up to a 90-degree angle.

Gates are shipped with all necessary mounting hardware and mounting instructions. 800/962-6111; www.safetygate.com.
