We are excited to announce that with significant investment we now have the capability to design and manufacture asset control foams here at our Guildford facility.

Using the latest CAD/CAM software and our new Trend CNC 3-axis machine we can design and manufacture bespoke plastazote foam inlays complimenting our storage solution range. They are ideal for control of tools, fixtures and artefacts; however the uses are endless.

Our foams are manufactured using different grades of plastazote which is a man-made polyethylene foam. It is chemically inert, flexible, oil proof, waterproof, non-toxic and odourless. We offer it in different colours, thicknesses and designs depending on your application.

So how can we help you?

Where asset management and visual audit is a key requirement for your operation, custom foam inlays are one of the best ways to go.

The process is simple following a few rules – first data capture, then profiling, designing the layout, request for sign off and finally the magic – creating the foam.

We are able to visit and survey removing the inconvenience of taking items ‘off-site’ or with simple training you can carry out the data capture yourself – especially useful for the handling of sensitive objects.

The complete package

We are all about project work. Now you’ve protected your asset, you need to protect your foam. We have plenty of options including protective cases, container trays and tool cabinets completing your storage solution.

A good example is where we solved a clients dilemma, which was goods being damaged during airfreight shipment. By securing multiple levels of foams in custom aluminium trays housed in protective cases we provided the ultimate security for their control of critical assets.This allowed complete kits to be transported safely and securely in a single transit case.

Next step…
