Best-in-class materials of construction and performance
Our PDT technology makes SUREBAND THE most effective shield design on the market. Be sure, be safe, chose Flangeguards
SUREBAND PDT (Pressure Diffusion Technology) uses a specially formulated multi-layered mesh that is held against the flange. The pressure is diffused in a controlled manor thus preventing formation of a mist / vapour cloud. At the point of exit from the shield, the leak takes the form of a safe, vertical drip or stream.
Our leak testing facility has proven that pressure diffusion is required to prevent spray and mist formation. However, many shield designs have no diffusion – and this can actually create a worse leak than no shield at all.
Our Quick-fit connection makes installation and removal of Safety Spray shields quick and simple
SUREBAND has been designed with simplicity in mind. Unlike conventional 'pull-cord' shields, no knots are required. This is a significant benefit, especially when removing shields – and tightly tied knots are typically cut, not untied
The Clear shield uses proprietry technical hook+loop connection (40kg lateral shear strength).
The Steel shield uses a quick connection latch which locks into one of 4 specially designed louvre slots.
OUR QUICK-FIT CONNECTION HAS TWO IMPORTANT BENEFITS
Installation time can often cost more than the shields themselves. SUREBAND is fitted within seconds (rather than minutes). This saves time and money, whilst maintaining maximum safety.
Ongoing pipe maintenance requires shields to be removed. Gloves are generally mandatory, so pull-cord knots are typical cut off rendering conventional shields useless. With SUREBAND, operatives are much more likely to re-fit shields (shields are often used within hazardous area zoning calculations, thus failure to re-install the shields invalidates zone classification)
MULTI-SIZE FUNCTION Increases flexibility & reduces stock holding
Our clever Multi-Size system means one shield fits multiple flange sizes. Only 5 shield sizes are needed to fit all 28 standard flanges between ½" and 6" pipe size (across multiple pressure classes).
This reduces stockholding & speeds up delivery dramatically. It also prevents fitting errors where site surveys are require (fixed size shields require precise flange measurement).
BEST-IN-CLASS MATERIALS Using highest quality materials, resulting in longest service life
100% ETFE and ECTFE. Conventional fabric shields are made from fibreglass coated with PTFE. Over time, with exposure to corrosive environments, the fibreglass is exposed and ultimately degrades. SUREBAND Clear contains no fibreglass, ensuring considerably longer life span.
With SUREBAND Clear, one size fits multiple flanges. This means reduced stockholding requirements and more flexibility during installation
Comprising all-316 stainless steel outer band and inner, multi-layered mesh. SUREBAND Steel works effectively at high pressure and wide temperature ranges. The quick-connection latch makes installation simple.
