Changing safety standards and procedures lead to this client requiring a retrofitted PVC safety cabinet / screen installed around existing pipework.
Fusion’s fabrication and site services team retrofitted PVC cabinetry with lock-shut, auto-close, windowed doors over the existing chemical dosing pipework and instrumentation. Read more about the safety design features Fusion builds into our chemical dosing cabinetry here. Fusion’s cabinetry design choices reduce the time site maintenance staff are directly exposed to dangerous chemicals in pipework.
Furthermore, Fusion utilised Unex PVC-based non-perforated continuous cable trays to create a retrofitted dual-containment system over the existing pipework outside of the cabinet.
Above: Shows the pipework within a bunded area, however there is no barrier to protect staff from leaks. Above is the pipework prior to project commencement. Note: Fusion did not install any of the components in the above image.
Above: Shows the completion of the project with the newly retrofitted PVC safety cabinet. The pipework is now screened – however still visible – within a Fusion PVC Sheet fabricated cabinet. Also, the pipework (the bottom-right corner) is now contained within a Unex non-perforated, continuous cable tray and cover.

Advantages of Fusion Fabricated Site-Work
Cost effective materials: PVC sheet and Unex Cable Trays are light in weight, requiring less supports and are easily handleable. Making installation quicker and safer than metal-based equivalent cabinetry.
Corrosion resistant: PVC Sheet and Unex PVC-based Cable Trays do not corrode. Resulting in reduced maintenance costs and greater longevity.
Safe Design: Fusion has a long history building pre-fabricated and retrofitted chemical dosing panels. We continually enhance our designs to help reduce the risk of exposure to dangerous chemicals. More information about how our designs protect people and the environment can be read here.
