HUGHES FOCUSES ON DVGW COMPLIANCE AT SAFETY EXHIBITION

Hughes Safety Showers, together with its German subsidiary Hughes Notduschen, will be showing a wide range of emergency showers and eyebath/facewash units at A+A 2007.

The stand will feature a range of products with DVGW certification. This confirms that they fully meet the new DIN EN -15154 (part 1 and 2) Standard. Hughes has more than 25 certified showers and eyebath/facewash units and is currently one of the only suppliers offering such a wide range of DVGW approved units.

‘An increasing number of customers are now specifying DVGW compliance as they recognise the benefit of using approved products,’ says Managing Director Tony Hughes. ‘Certification provides the reassurance they seek and it has undoubtedly helped our German subsidiary, Hughes Notduschen, to achieve record sales during the past 12 months. Our significant investment in securing certification has already been repaid in increased sales.’

Further evidence of the importance attached to DVGW approval came with the inclusion of these products in the latest issue of the German industrial health and safety products catalogue Denios.
