Resin makers tackle explosion risks
Shoreham by Sea, United Kingdom

Pyroban has reported an increase in enquiries about explosion-proof forklifts from resin manufacturers and industries that use fibreglass in the manufacturing process.
Fibreglass is used in the production of a wide range of products including boats, automotive body shells and parts, kayaks, building products, wind turbine blades and storage tanks. Pyroban says industries handling flammable material like resin in the production and curing process should complete a full risk assessment to minimise the release of flammable vapour and avoid explosions.

Poole Harbour Commissioners spokesman Paul Gillingham says the operator had seen a "significant increase in container weight" over the past year as its customers maximise the efficiency of container space.
"A lot of pressure was being put on our handling fleet and so we needed a new machine to ensure we maintain high levels of productivity," he says.
