A review of the Florian Trade Fair 19th – 21st September 2013
RAW exhibited this year for the first time at the Florian Trade Fair in Karlsruhe. With more than 5.500 visitors, there was a lively coming and going at the Trade Fair for Fire Brigades as well as Fire and Disaster Management. Among the interested visitors were mainly members of professional and voluntary fire brigade departments, decision makers of plant fire departments and several fire fighting equipment dealers.
Our exhibition space in the outdoor area of the exhibition centre in Karlsruhe represented a particular attraction for those visitors who primarily deal with the professional response to spills and leaks and/or with the safe collection of liquid hazardous materials as well as with their proper, secure and efficient removal.
The interest again focused on our Foldable Multi-Purpose Spill Containment Sumps, from our smallest and newest version, the Spill Containment Sump for Road Accidents, to the XL2 Sump. Fire brigades already working with our Multi-Purpose Spill Containment Sumps stressed their practical handling, the quick and simple assembly and, consequently, the time-saving use. Particularly when it is important to collect environmentally dangerous, liquid materials after road accidents in a safe and quick manner, the sumps offer decisive advantages if compared with alternative collecting containers whose use, due to their complicated assembly, is very time-consuming and involves the help of several persons.
(RAW Multi-Purpose Spill Containment Sumps are ready for use within just a few minutes and can be folded up in a few simple steps after use. Thanks to their small pack size and resistance to a wide range of liquid chemicals, the sumps are indispensable auxiliary tools particularly for fire departments and the civil protection in order to control environmental threats in a safe and quick way.)
Our visitors were also impressed by our Oil Booms. The very high absorption capacity of the active Oil Absorbent Booms, filled with polypropylene flakes, was shown with various demonstrations. In the area of water protection, Oil Booms, Oil Absorbent Sweep, Oil Absorbent Pillows, etc. offer innovative solutions to safely and rapidly absorb oil from the surface of the water. In this regard, an ideal combination are our Active-Passive Booms for the containment and active suction of oils and other hydrocarbon-based liquids. Nonwoven Absorbent Products such as Absorbent Pad und Pad Rolls or Mats are, in the industry, an inexpensive, environmentally sound and workspace-friendly alternative to Absorbent Granules when it comes to collecting and removing smaller leaks as well as to using such products preventatively for handling hazardous materials (more info here).
The RAW trade fair appearance was rounded off by expert and professional advice. The legislation concerning the handling of hazardous substances is particularly complicated, it is therefore all the more important that we provide advice making complete our innovative range of products to protect people and the environment.
