Nominees for the annual HazardEx awards have recently been
announced, with cable protection manufacturer PMA receiving
recognition in the ‘Technical Innovation’ category.
Since PMA launched the world’s first nylon-based cable protection system, approved to ATEX standards and suitable for use in hazardous environments, the system has been implemented into a number of industries, from rail and construction, to power and renewable energy.
Used in a number of situations where other systems may not be suitable, PMA’s products are now proving popular with breweries, where hops could cause ignition, and places where potentially hazardous environments exist such as refineries, power stations, paint shops and petrol stations.
Tony Hollands, national sales manager of PMA-UK says: “We are all delighted to be considered for this prestigious award. Our Atex approval has opened many new doors for us and more people are realising that nylon provides both a flexible and durable system for use in a number of sensitive environments. We are thrilled that the product is gaining the recognition we believe it deserves.”
The HazardEx winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner Evening on 23rd February 2011 at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The categories for 2011 include: Contribution towards Safety (sponsored by Intertek), Environmental Contribution to Industry, Best User Application and
Lifetime Contribution to the Industry.
