Bleaching requires the use of hydrogen peroxide, or chlorine dioxide, two highly polluting and aggressive substances.
PVC trays are specially designed and formulated to respond to these high environmental harsh environments.
A fertilizer is any material of natural or synthetic origin that is applied to soil or plant tissue to supply one or more nutrients for plant growth. This objective is accomplished in two ways, the traditional being the additives that provide nutrients. The second way in which some fertilizers act is to increase the efficiency of the soil by modifying its water retention and aeration. These processes produce acidic and alkaline environments.
Basorplast cable trays is the best solution due to the proven resistance to these environments.
Rail transport is a means of transporting passengers and goods in wheeled vehicles that run on rails, also known as tracks. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles travel on a prepared flat surface, rail vehicles are directionally guided along the tracks on which they travel. The tracks, stations, catenaries and substations are the most important infrastructures for the railway industry.
PVC trays is specially designed for outdoor installations such as tracks or catenaries and interiors such as stations or substations. The insulating nature of PVC gives the installation an additional safety factor against high voltages.
A rooftop photovoltaic plant is a photovoltaic system that has its solar panels generating electricity mounted on the roof of a building, in a residential or commercial area, with a horizontal or inclined shape. Rooftop-mounted systems are small compared to ground-mounted photovoltaic power plants with megawatt capacities.
PVC trays is the fastest and most practical way to handle wiring installation due to their versatility.
A solar farm is a photovoltaic power plant, with a large-scale photovoltaic system designed for the supply of commercial energy on the electrical grid. It differs from most decentralized and building-mounted solar energy applications in that it supplies power commercially for resale, and not to a local user or users.
PVC trays is the fastest and most practical way to manage the cable installation due to its ease of channeling the installation to the solar panels.
It is a type of large machinery, generally equipped with a hoist rope, metal wire chains, and pulleys, which can be used both to lift and lower materials and to move them horizontally. It is mainly used to lift extremely heavy things and transport it to other places
Cranes is commonly corroded by salty winds. PVC cable trays is the best solution against the oxidation produced by these winds.
BARRIERS AND PIERS
Barriers and piers are elements that prevent water or underground currents from following their normal course. The reservoirs created by these elements, not only suppress floods, but also provide water for activities such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use, aquaculture and navigability.
Hydroelectric energy is often obtained thanks to these infrastructures and these types of places are subject to high humidity and salinity, PVC trays is the best solution for this type of environment due to it´s functionality is not altered in these conditions.
A dock is an area between the water and a man-made structure, it is usually used for docking of boats or ships, usually near a shore. The docks are subjected to high humidity.
Basorplast trays is the most efficient solution due to it is not altered by the harmful effects of humidity and salt.
PASSENGER BOARDING PLATFORMS
It is a platform used for the entry of passengers in a boat that can be located in port or at sea. Boarding begins with the entry of the first passenger and ends with the seat of each passenger and the closing of the doors. These boarding bridges are located in very humid areas and even in direct contact with sea water.
PVC trays do not present any type of corrosion to these contacts and is the best solution for cable routing.
The machine building industry is a subsector of the industry that produces and maintains machines for consumers, industry, and many other sectors in the economy.
The insulating nature of the PVC cable trays gives the machinery installation greater security for indirect electrical contacts.
A hotel is an infrastructure that offers paid short-term accommodation. Facilities can range from a modest quality mattress in a small room to large suites. Hotels located on the beach or near the sea are directly affected by wet and salty winds every day.
PVC trays is specially designed not to be affected by these environments, being the best option for this type of installation.
A commercial or tertiary building is a building that is used for commercial use. Types can include office buildings, warehouses, or retail. At beach locations, a commercial building often combines features such as apartments on levels 2-10, with retail on the ground floors. The buildings located in the beach areas or near the sea, are directly affected by the wet and salty winds every day.
