Casella’s BOUNDARY Guardian strengthens Mabey Hire Instrumentation’s offering to the construction industry

Casella’s BOUNDARY Guardian is now available for hire to the UK construction industry via an exclusive partnership with Mabey Hire’s Instrumentation division. This innovative web-based remote system is the first simultaneous multi-parameter dust, noise, wind speed and direction monitor from a single manufacturer in the UK. Designed for a wide range of applications, the BOUNDARY Guardian ensures compliance with regulatory limits, including Section 61 restrictions and PPG24 compliance, on construction or demolition sites.

The BOUNDARY Guardian compliments Mabey Hire Instrumentation’s expanding range of equipment that provides remote, web-based structural conditional monitoring for the construction industry in both permanent and temporary conditions.  Real time data from the BOUNDARY Guardian can be accessed through any web browser at any time. Reports can also be produced to ensure regulatory compliance over a broader period.  The system features a local alarm function that also emails site managers if safe dust or noise limits are exceeded.

Furthermore, the BOUNDARY Guardian utilises proven measurement with accuracy and sensitivity. It can report on noise parameters LAeq, LAmx, LA10 and LA90, particulate levels PM10,  PM2.5 or TSP to a sensitivity of 1ug/m3 and wind speed and direction accuracy of +/-2%. It only requires fixing points and a power supply for installation, requires minimum maintenance and features a unique filter that allows for on-site calibration of dust

“Because it allows customers to monitor site environments remotely, the BOUNDARY Guardian is a perfect fit for Mabey Hire Instrumentation’s range,” said Chris Carter, Commercial Director of Mabey Hire. “The BOUNDARY Guardian is a great tool for the construction industry including demolitions, waste transfer and roadside monitoring.  It gives site and works managers total peace of mind that they will be informed of issues so they can take action and avoid costly disruption and later problems. Furthermore, if complaints are made about noise or dust onsite, the BOUNDARY Guardian gives them the data to prove compliance with regulations.”

The BOUNDARY Guardian is available to hire from your local Mabey Hire depot, a list of which can be found here [].
