Eco-friendly welfare units from Hewden
Hewden, the national, multi-product hire specialist, has added a range of static and mobile eco-friendly welfare units to its portfolio, helping users to reduce carbon emissions and cut the costs of fuel and maintenance by over £7,000 per year.
A welfare unit is often the first and last piece of equipment on a construction site, so it pays to make sure that it is economical to run for the duration of the job.
The static EasyCabin eco28 welfare unit incorporates many advanced features as standard including PIR activated LED lighting, carbon monoxide detector, blown air thermostatically controlled heating, thermostatically controlled hot water and, most importantly, intelligent generator charging technology.
This means that the units’ 12-volt batteries are monitored by a control system and charged automatically to their optimum level by the integral diesel generator. When the optimum charge is reached, the generator is turned off, keeping usage to a minimum and reducing costs.
Based upon a 50-hour working week, this offers annual savings of up to £5,967 in fuel costs, £1,250 in maintenance costs and a reduction of over 17,901 kg in CO2 emissions, when compared to an 11.5 kVA generator at 100% usage with fuel at 90p per litre.
These features are combined with all of the facilities a modern day workforce expects including a plant room, toilet, washing facilities, canteen area for up to eight people, drying room and office.
The mobile EasyCabin eco12 welfare unit offers many of the same advanced features as the eco28 including generator charging technology and provides canteen facilities for up to five people with a separate toilet and drying room.
Constructed from unique patented high strength composite panels, the 12-volt eco12 has an unladen weight of just 1600 kg and features a hydraulically lowered axle to reduce the risk of theft.
Both units are compliant with the latest HSE requirements and are available for immediate hire
Hydraulic demolition cutter CC 950
With an operating weight of 920 kg, the new CC 950 fits onto carriers between 9 and 16 tons and a crushing force of 55 tons.
"There is much that changes in this excavator class", states Wolfgang Hohn, Product Line Manager for Silent Demolition Tools. "We are seeing a clear trend towards increasingly more versatile carriers which are ready equipped with couplers for a wide range of different attachments."
The serial-production hydraulic rotation device ensures continuous 360º rotation, thus allowing attachments to be placed in position quickly and easily.
Servicing has been greatly simplified. The attachment cutting blades can be rotated, so replacing them on the construction site is possible without much time and effort.
The CC 950 can be used for light demolition work, such as on masonry and lightly reinforced concrete structures and particularly for interior renovation and gutting.
