“We have submitted the design to the HSE procurement Dept and they are currently evaluating the design and samples are being sent to them for approval.

Here are the  Advantages of this design:

  • It is speedier in production than other 3D printed items.
  • It can be sanitized at end of shift in a microwave at 120 degrees C
  • PMMA is non porous and easy to clean.
  • The laser sheets can be punched on a regular paper punch set at the A6 setting punched each side.
  • It is now ready for production and is built with EN166 spec in the design and the HSE guidelines taken into consideration from the start.
  • It can be manufactured from multiple locations and shipped with very little waste and transport to all locations in Ireland.”
