Made from specially formulated PVC material, Apex Welding and Safety Screens will ensure optimum safety in workshop environments, protecting workers from harsh ultra-violet light and dangerous u.v. radiation which occurs during welding and grinding processes.
This locally manufactured safety screen incorporates a heavy-duty ultra-violet light absorber, which safely contains all u.v. radiation in the curtained off area enhancing safety in the environment and providing a high level of protection for workers in close proximity to welding and grinding activities.
Standard tinted PVC. material while offering a visible barrier does not provide adequate protection. Extensive tests conducted by the SABS proved that Apex Welding and Safety Screens are superior to conventional tinted material.
Tested for ultra-violet transmittance, the conventional material gave readings of 0,0005%, 0,008% and 5.0% as opposed to Apex readings of 0,005%, 0,001 and 0,005%. When tested for total visible light transmittance, the tests were conclusive. The conventional material allowed 78%, while the Apex material allowed only 15,5% light transmittance – a dramatic difference.
Apex Welding and Safety Screens are impervious to burning, and this is of particular importance should the material come into contact with welding splatter.
Access to cordoned off areas is easy as the patented Balledge® design on the individual PVC strips facilitates easy access for both personnel and equipment. The strips part on contact and return to their original configuration ensuring an efficient close.
Available in several configurations to suit individual requirements, the most popular version is the freestanding frame that facilitates both easy handling and portability. The screens’ angled feet allow optimum utilisation of the floor space and the screens can be butted together at a 90-degree angle.
In addition to Apex Welding and Safety Screens, the company markets a range of high-speed roll up and fold up doors, which represent a leap forward in warehouse closure systems.
