ProDriPole – the perfect solution for holiday homes and caravans

prodripole showing water levelprodripoleA recent trial to test the performance of our new desiccant ProDriPole has provided amazing results.
A holiday home which is normally closed up for the winter season was used to test the efficiency of the desiccant pole. A home which previously had some problems with mould and damp appearing on clothes and walls and a musty smell after the property had been left for long periods without heating.

3 ProDriPoles were placed in the 2 bedroom coastal apartment, 1 in the porch area and 1 in each bedroom wardrobe. After several weeks there didn’t appear to be any change and there was no water in the collection reservoir. However after approximately 2 months the water level had started to rise and this continued over a period of 6 months until the water level had reached the maximum level (see arrow above) The damp areas which had been noticeable previously were dry and there was no evidence of any mould or musty smells.

The amount of water collected is quite staggering and makes you wonder – where would that have gone otherwise? This is a cheap and neat method of protecting your property and the owners will certainly be purchasing more ProDriPoles for the next winter closure.

Tom raises £620 for The British Heart Foundation

Protective Packaging blogAway from my procurement duties at Protective Packaging I am a keen runner around the West Didsbury area of Manchester.

I felt I needed a goal to keep me focused on my fitness, now my football boots have been hung up! I was asked to participate in the Leeds half marathon with friends. I accepted the challenge of this gruelling 13 mile run and took the opportunity to raise money for The British Heart Foundation at the same time.

The British Heart Foundation was my choice of charity as my grandfather had a triple heart bypass and also I know friends who have lost loved ones through heart disease.

Sunday 8th May was the big race and I felt in good shape. The course is a road race through the suburbs of Leeds and has some colossal inclines which I managed to tackle. I felt ok and was going well after 8 miles, however my legs where starting to wobble slightly 10 miles into the race. Fortunately through my determination I finished the race in 2hrs 5 mins.

I raised £620 and would like to thank those who sponsored me for their kind generosity to this worthy charity.

Alufoil Trophy awarded at Interpack

Alufoil TrophyProtective Packaging Limited were delighted to receive their award for “Technical Innovation” from EAFA the European Aluminium Foil Association during the recent Interpack exhibition in Dusseldorf.
Directors John Molyneux and Simon Jolly collected the award from EAFA for their entry of the “Zero 360 Fire Suppression System” an inner bladder manufactured from aluminium barrier foil laminate which prevents nitrogen transfer and enhances the shelf life of the extinguisher which is used within the motor sport industry.
Manufactured from PET/ALU/OPA/LDPE with a welded stem which contains fire suppressant, the bladder is available in either a flat or cylindrical design. It is housed in an aluminium cylinder which is super pressurised with Nitrogen as a propellant. When there is a sudden rise in temperature nitrogen compresses the bladder and the fire suppressant is discharged through the valve and two discharge outlets which are strategically placed within the vehicle.
Simon Jolly commented “we are delighted to have won this prestigious award and are constantly striving to manufacture new and innovative applications and the inner bladder for the Lifeline Fire Suppression System was an exciting new challenge. We are grateful to Jim Morris, MD at Lifeline Fire & Safety Ltd for putting their trust in us to get the development right, and achieving the desired results.”
