Intertec launches a range of enclosed emergency safety showers for use in harsh outdoor environments. The emergency safety showers (ESSs) are integrated into shelters made from advanced composite GRP materials to optimize them for durability and long life. The exterior faces of the insulated shelters are 100% GRP (glass reinforced polyester) with an advanced UV-resistant gel-coat surface. Key application areas include oil, gas, chemical and petrochemical processing plants sited in Arctic or desert regions, offshore platforms and vessels, and harsh coastal locations.
Two main shelter options are available, with enclosed square or rectangular shaped ESS showers of 122x122 or 122x244 cm (4x4 or 4x8 feet). The square format is ideal for outfitting as an emergency shower and eyewash station that can draw tempered water from a locally available source. The larger rectangular ESS provides additional space to accommodate a water storage tank and heating facilities. The special materials in the construction of these shelters are fabricated by Intertec and have been field-proven to offer advanced performance in the most extreme outdoor conditions.
