Lanes on course for success in the 3Rs Lanes Group has been shortlisted in two categories of the 3R Awards 2011. A delighted Michelle Ringland, Lanes’ business development manager, said that the Lanes case studies had been selected for their inventive approach: “This is about projects which prolong the active life of buildings and infrastructure through solutions which are preferable to new build. In both submissions, Lanes has ticked all the boxes. Our Manchester Metrolink project to strengthen the utility infrastructure has been shortlisted for the ‘Utility Facilities’ award. Thanks to our work, sewers are able to withstand the weight of the city’s trams so that the network can be extended for another 20


miles. [...] In the ‘Best Service Provider’ category, we have been shortlisted for rehabilitating a corroded pipebridge carrying a mainline sewer, which had begun to leak raw waste into the watercourse below.”

accredited company assessed as being competent in the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems. SSG’s Fire Systems engineering manager, Chris Smith commented: “We are proud of our LPS 1014 accreditation and work hard to ensure that all our fire systems contracts are carried out to very exacting standards.”


Testo 480: professional high-end solution for climate measurement


Whether it is for testing ventilation and air-conditioning systems, evaluating the comfort level at workplaces or for testing in calibration labs, research labs and facilities: the Testo 480 is the new high-end device for the required high accuracy meas- urement. With an intelligent calibration and sensor concept, flexible data management and professional report generation via PC software, as well as numerous additional functions, the highest of requirements for extensive and advanced climate measurement are fulfilled in every regard. System-related measurement uncertainty is a thing of the past. Cutting-edge measurement technology means quick, easy and extremely professional measurements. Testo fulfils these requirements consistently with its new 480 and its probes so as to save customers time and money, while also guaranteeing them maximum measuring reliability and flexibility. The result reflects the simple calibration concept and intelligent probes that set a new standard in measuring technology. The climate measuring instrument is a high-end solution when it comes to measurement data management and report generation too. Users can transfer measurement data to the PC easily and flexibly via USB cable or SD card and manage this data efficiently using the PC software. The central trackpad ensures con- venient navigation through menus and settings. Air conditioning engineers also have guided measurement programs, such as for standards-compliant grid measurement on a HVAC system in accordance with EN 12599. All relevant climate param-


eters can be monitored using the extensive probe range including flow, temperature, humidity or CO2. This not only optimises the comfortable atmosphere in offices and living spaces, but can, for example, also prevent mould growth.
