Hormann V 3015 Clean
Hormann Middle East has introduced V 3015 Clean, a high speed roller door with a transparent curtain incorporating spring steel stabilisation. The Hormann V 3015 Door is an internal door used for clean rooms with a fully transparent curtain that has a thickness of 4.0mm. Air purification in clean rooms can result in a pressure difference of up to 50 Pa. The fully transparent curtain of this clean room door is tightly integrated in the special side guides. This minimises air loss and leakage, and enables an optimum design for ventilation systems. With standard FU control, the maximum opening and closing speed is 1.5 m/s and 0.5 m/s, respectively.

OMTrak manuals incorporates reporting tools such as progress and sign off reports to ensure the high-quality user manuals are delivered on time.
Eaton 1u and 2u ePDU
Eaton has launched a range of enclosure power distribution units (ePDU). Eaton’s 1U and 2U ePDUs have been designed to optimise power distribution in both, advanced and simple IT applications. The new range is available within the EMEA region, and offers similar benefits associated with Eaton’s vertical 0U ePDUs. These ePDUs can be used in wall-mount enclosures where no rear access is possible, have a plug retention feature, and are suitable for operation at up to 60ºC, allowing them to be used in high-temperature IT environments. Basic and metered models are currently available, with switched, metered outlet, and managed models to be introduced to the range later this year.
Karcher BRC 40/22
Karcher announced it will introduce a carpet cleaning machine to the Middle East market in September. The carpet cleaner, to be launched in the UAE, has functionalities to dispense cleaning solutions, work the solution into the carpet, and to clean the solution and dirt from the carpet. It also features spray nozzles on the front to supply the cleaning agent solution, rotating roller brushes that work the solution into the carpet helps the operator by providing an additional traction drive – both forwards and backwards – and a squeegee that wipes the dirt and solution away. The BRC 40/22’s head can rotate 200° to both sides, and this manoeuvrability assists in navigating corners and obstacles.
