With our international and local manufacturers geared to providing solutions, Railtraction Engineering has found itself placed in an ideal situation to assist with the provision of Disaster Management and Hazmat equipment.
Because disasters are normally unexpected and completely unpredictable the success of handling such a scene relays heavily upon a professional emergency plan.
Water Tanks/Hazmat Storage Units
Although we represent an international manufacturer of specialised Water/Hazardous Chemical Material storage tanks, we are also a distributor of locally manufactured water tanks which in their own right provide specific solutions to specific Southern African problems.
A comprehensive range of specialised HAZMAT tools and kits have been sourced for your use directly from the manufacturer. Although certain kits have an optional choice to include non-sparking tools, Railtraction Engineering has made it standard practice to have these as standard equipment.
Ensuring that your staff can see what they are doing during all Emergency Operation is nearly as important as making sure that the rescuer is visible to outside parties.
