Protection and Safety

SAFETY IN YOUR LAB

Safety is the primary concern of Dimanlab®, an area with which the company is fully engaged and committed.

All equipment components comply with ISO9001:2015 quality and ISO14001:2015 environmental process management standards as well as meeting EN-14056 guidelines and recommendations for laboratory furniture. In addition, the OpenLab® metal frame is EN 13150 certified.

PERSONAL PROTECTION AND SAFETY

All the components that comprise any laboratory must be designed and put in place with the primary objective of achieving maximum personal safety and protection.

PROPERTY PROTECTION AND SAFETY

The economic value of a laboratory’s infrastructure and equipment is, as a rule, quite high, and it must be protected from potential accidents or circumstances that may damage or destroy it.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND SAFETY

A well-designed laboratory employing the right means will be an environmentally friendly laboratory.
