E2S Warning Signals launches two new product families at MARINTEC 2015, Shanghai
E2S Warning Signals will be attending MARINTEC China, held in Shanghai from the 1st to the 4th of December 2015. The show is the main gateway to the Asian maritime market with 58,000 visitors from 88 countries and more than 1,700 exhibiting companies from 32 countries; this year’s show is even larger.
Acknowledged as the world’s leading independent signalling manufacturer E2S will be present on Stand N3H41h within the UK pavilion and will be launching two new ranges of hazardous area signals with ATEX and IECEx approval. The stand focuses on explosion proof and intrinsically safe warning signals developed to meet the challenging needs of the oil, gas and marine industries.
The centrepiece of the stand is a preview of the new premium ‘STEx’ stainless steel explosion proof warning signal range featuring a corrosion proof 316L steel enclosure suitable for the most aggressive environments. On display for its official launch there will be the new ‘GNEx’ signal range of GRP enclosure devices ATEX & IECEx approved for Zone 1, 21; the GNExB1 and B2 beacons and the J2 junction box. Also on show is the new ‘D1x’ range, intended for NEC/CEC Class I and Class II Division 1 and Zone 1 & 20 applications. All new hazardous area signals from E2S feature seven lens colours with a UV stable polycarbonate, field replaceable filter; the alarm horns with either traditional flared horns or an omni-directional compact radial horn. Threaded flame paths enable quick installation and simplify maintenance inspection whilst the innovative internal arrangement maximises wiring space.
Accompanying the new product ranges are the ‘D2x’ and ‘E2x’ alarm horns and combination signals approved to UL, cULs, ATEX & IECEx Class I & II Div 2 and Zone 2 & 22 alongside the industry standard ‘BEx’ explosion proof and the IS intrinsically safe product ranges.
UK-based Sales and Marketing Director Neal Porter will be present to answer questions and talk about the new product releases and to introduce Colin Tan, the company’s new Sales Manager for the ME and APAC regions.

The global rebound in construction activity is set to continue over the coming years, supported by a wave of publicly funded infrastructure projects. This investment is coming at a time when global supply chain disruptions are hampering the delivery of construction materials, and tight labour markets are limiting the supply of labour.
Epiroc, a leading productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and infrastructure industries, will relocate the production and development of drill rigs for surface construction from Japan to its facility in Nanjing, China. The production facility in Yokohama, Japan, has been sold and will be closed.
