Von Duprin Show the Way

Relcross have employed their problem solving experience by supplying Von Duprin 99QEL exit devices to Advanced Diesel Engineering (ADE) of South Kirkby in Yorkshire. ADE are experts in acoustic containers for generators and their products can be found in an increasing number of data centres throughout Europe. Data Centres have banks of generators on stand-by, ready to come online in seconds in the event of a power failure. But generators, especially un-containerised diesel generators, are very loud. So loud that they present a substantial problem for anyone nearby and a large number in close proximity would be totally unbearable. A silent generator operates inside a sound proof container or generator enclosure which muffles the sound heard by workers, employees, customers and members of the public.
