Shaun Struthers, products director at HVAC & R said: "We have taken time to evolve this particular product from our original design in 2009. We’ve taken in to consideration market challenges and constraints and have refined the solution to deliver a product which is efficient, reliable and safe for clients operating in harsh climates. We’re pleased to be supporting Hughes Safety Showers in bringing this solution to their customers in the Middle East region."
Simon Ingham, head of sales at Hughes Safety Showers said: "We required a particular solution that would meet strict temperature control specifications whilst operating in locations with high ambient temperatures and demanding environments, and often limited onsite utilities. HVAC & R has worked with us to develop their product which now enables us to overcome the environmental challenges and meet the needs of our clients. We’ve been impressed with both the end product and service and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with HVAC & R."
