Breathe Easy

“More contractors should adopt off-site construction techniques as part of their health and safety strategy.” Ben Jayes, Managing Director

What is the meaning behind Breathe Easy?

At VIVALDA we have a responsibility to increase awareness of the scourge of dust inhalation in the workplace. That’s why we launched our Breathe Easy campaign – to help contractors combat the risks of cutting boards on-site.

What is dust?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defines dust as tiny, dry particles in the air that can be produced when materials are cut, drilled, demolished, sanded, shovelled, etc. Dust is often overlooked as a health concern, as the majority of the harmful particles cannot always be seen with the naked eye.

How can we help you prevent dust inhalation?

Off-site fabrication can significantly reduce the risk of dust inhalation by eliminating the need to cut any products on your site. Our in-house fabrication facility can shape, drill, bevel, cut and finish to almost any specification, thanks for our CAD controlled saws. The state-of-the-art machinery features tested extraction systems collecting dust particles from within the facility during and after each job.

Benefits of off-site fabrication

Not only does off-site fabrication play a pivotal role in the reduction of dust inhalation, it also aids in a robust service for our customers:

  • Waste reduction
    Our CNC machines accurately map out how to best utilise each cladding sheet, plotting multiple designs on one sheet.
  • Cut-to-size
    Our machines cut through a vast array of materials including aluminium, terracotta, wood, GRC, concrete and more.
  • Scheduled deliveries
    Have your materials delivered to your site, exactly when and where you need them to be. Each of our delivery vehicles are fitted with the tools needed to safely transport your goods from our warehouses to your site.
  • Latest software
    We have the latest technology for sheets requiring edge finishes, face grooving, accurate pre-drilling of holes or duct cut outs.
