Pland Stainless has supplied 50 new sinks for the recently refurbished labs in the STEM department at John Moores Liverpool University.
The refurbishment, which was carried out by Teksol Ltd, caters for 4000 undergraduates and has vastly improved the facilities for the Universities Science, Technology, Engineering and Math’s students. The new laboratories will be put to a variety of different uses including course work in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Forensics, Pharmacy Practice, Pharmacology, Ecology, Cell Culture, Anthropology, Geography, Sports Science and Psychology. The labs now reflect the commercial environments the students will work in upon completion of their degrees – just what the Government and European funding had aimed to achieve.
Stainless steel is an ideal material for use in medical, scientific, industrial and commercial laboratories and Pland Stainless supplied a number of different sized sink models to the project. All of the sinks were specified and produced in 316 grade stainless steel for improved acid and corrosion resistance and were fully compliant with HTM64 for Healthcare.
“We have worked within the laboratory environment for many years, our clients specify stainless steel sinks within our projects as the stainless steel material provides great versatility, the material is much more resistant to chemicals, heat and damage than other composites. An additional feature to using stainless steel products is that it complements any worktop colour or design we may be using within the laboratories. We have worked with Pland Stainless products for a number of years and have always been confident in the quality supplied. When we can we like to support a UK manufacturing company,” said Iain Millington, Managing Director of Teksol Limited.
