tips + tricks, safety at work

Safety in the workplace is an essential part of any employer’s responsibility, both to the workforce and members of public. In the cold winter months temperatures can drop extremely low, causing a variety of safety and comfort issues, and solutions can be difficult to find in some workplace environments. Flexelec are industry leaders in providing affordable, high quality heating solutions for every requirement, from drum heaters and heating mats to Flexelec door heaters, they can provide it all.

One persistent problem which appears year after year is frost and snow, which can cause businesses all kinds of problems. From a safety point of view, slippery entrances and frozen equipment can be a nightmare, which is where their high quality products come into play. Heated floor mats can provide the perfect solution to those frozen and often slippery doorways. By placing a silicone heat mat in the doorway, the temperature can be kept above freezing at all times, making the entrance safe to walk on. These heating mats can be ordered to size, meaning there is a solution whether you have a single office doorway entrance or a large industrial unit to keep safe.

For large industrial units and warehouse spaces that require the temperature to remain above a certain level, large aluminium heating mats can provide the perfect solution. They only require a low power input, and can maintain the base temperature within the space to ensure that stock, machinery and vehicles are protected from the cold. They can protect from freezing temperatures and maintain a room temperature of up to 800. Although it is not a legal requirement, the Health, Safety, and Welfare Regulations do stipulate that working environments should be kept above 600, and these heating mats provide a low cost, low energy solution to heating large spaces.

Both the silicone and aluminium heating mats provide an excellent solution to temperature control, and can be used in a variety of different situations. Silicone heating mats can be manufactured in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, offering heating options for unusual and difficult to reach spaces. If you have a storage tank that is liable to freezing, these mats can be attached to the outside to maintain a steady temperature as required.
