Lasermet – the laser safety engineers
Lasermet is the leading laser safety company and has been providing laser safety products and services since 1987. The company Chairman has a long history of laser safety involvement since the 1960’s and was Chairman of the BSI Laser Safety Committee (TC76) from 1985 to 2008, and Chair of the European Laser Safety Committee from 1992 to 2008. This experience has filtered through to the directors, management and designers at Lasermet who are highly experienced in laser safety.
In early 2015 the company set up an additional manufacturing facility to supply the demand for its certified laser safety products and it continues to expand through a network of worldwide distributors. As the only UK designer, manufacturer, installer and certifier of such a huge range of laser safety equipment and systems, Lasermet is proud to be able to provide the most advanced laser safe products.
The range includes certified products such as ICS-6 ELISe interlock controllers for labs and hospitals and Laser Castle laser safety cabins for robotic laser welding and cutting operations. The cabins – which are rapidly built in standard sizes, can optionally, be installed with the Laser Jailer active laser safety systems for very high powered, multi-kW lasers. This provides an extra level of safety by switching off the laser if the beam strikes the walls, roof or doors. The Glaser Jailer active filter window provides high powered laser protection while providing visibility in these cabins. Orca, Wolf and Rhino laser blocking curtains and roller blinds are designed to protect personnel in hospital theatres, labs and universities while a range of certified laser blocking screens called Laserlightscreen and Flatfoot provide portable protection. Optoblok optical table guards protect users in labs using lasers on optical tables.
Lasermet’s laser shutters are available up to Performance Level ‘e’ of ISO 13849-1. The leading laser safety calculation software, LaserSafePC v5, (conforming to IEC 60825-1:2014) saves hours of engineering time, determines the Class of laser and provides eyewear specifications in accordance with EN207. Lasermet tests lasers and certifies them in the UKAS accredited test laboratory for CE marking and the company also produces reports for FDA (CDRH) Registration – enabling laser products to be exported to the USA.
Lasermet’s in-house consultants carry laser safety training workshops for Laser Safety Officers and others, either on customers’ premises or at the NPL, London. Courses are also provided for Core of Knowledge requirements in the medical and cosmetic industry, as well as for doctors and dentists.
The extensive range of laser safety equipment includes laser safety eyewear to suit all applications and style preferences conforming to EN207 while Lasermet’s laser safety labels and laser warning signs conform to the requirements of the laser safety standard BS EN IEC 60825-1. These products can be bought through the online shop while more specialist products and services can be ordered by contacting the sales office.
Also, Lasermet designs and manufactures highly prestigious, professional, dual colour, dual message LED signs for many applications including laser safety. Virtually any message and/or symbol can be displayed in a range of colours. The dual message red/green signs are unique and secret when not lit running from 24VDC.
