PROVEN SOLUTIONS: Flood Barriers Should Stand Up To Water And Debris Impacts As Well

There is a lot to consider when you’re planning flood protection for your building / facility. When choosing the best flow barrier, for example, one must consider more than just the size and structure of the opening, the means of deployment (active vs passive) and the water pressure. It’s also critical not to forget that the current within floodwaters often carries debris with it.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: New Ideas For Traffic Control In Manufacturing Facilities

As manufacturing machines become larger and more automated and facilities become more productive and faster paced, the job of keeping workers safe has evolved as well. It’s no longer enough to rely on signage to remind employees that they must keep a safe distance from equipment or floor tape to steer foot traffic onto safe pathways. Even products like cones can be easily overlooked, creating a need for more tangible, more effective protection for workers.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: Inspection Hatches Play A Critical Role In Safe, Successful Production

Some of the most important parts of manufacturing and production processes happen in places that are hard to get to and difficult to see. This might be because part of the system needs to be enclosed for operational or safety reasons, or it might be because some elements of the process simply don’t need to be out in the open. Whatever the reason, eventually maintenance and repair teams need to be able to inspect (and perhaps access) all parts of a manufacturing process.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: Industrial Ventilation Is Too Important To Overlook

It can be easy to take air for granted. After all, it’s invisible and intangible, a component of most industrial processes that goes unnoticed until poor ventilation becomes an issue – something all too common for many facilities. Not only is proper ventilation required for the operation of machines and technology, regulatory agencies like OSHA have developed standards for it as well, directing companies to provide healthy atmospheric conditions for their workers.

PS Safety Access™ Case Study: CHI St. Alexius Health

CHI St. Alexius Health in Bismarck, North Dakota, was struggling with a safety solution that was causing a problem of its own. The busy regional hospital was employing gates on various stairwells in order to keep patients and staff safe, but the gates themselves closed with a deafening “clang” that echoed through the building. CHI St. Alexius needed gates that did their job without disrupting staff or patients.

PROVEN SOLUTIONS: The Build America, Buy American (BABA) And American Iron And Steel (AIS) Provisions And How They Impact Doors, Safety Gates And Hatches

The idea of American governing bodies requiring that materials used in publicly funded projects originate in the United States is not a new one. In fact, the original Buy American Act originated in 1933, requiring federal agencies to purchase “domestic end products” and use “domestic construction materials.” This act has been amended multiple times over the past 90 years or so, including revisions in the late 1970s and the Build America, Buy America (BABA) Act introduced in 2021 (and taking effect in 2022). How do these regulations govern the inclusion of doors in a project? Read on for more information.
