We are proud to be a member of The British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI), the UK’s representative trade association for the landscaping sector. The membership comprises interior and exterior landscapers and designers, grounds maintenance contractors, and companies supplying industry-related products and services. And they all have one thing in common: a commitment to delivering professional excellence by continually raising standards across the industry.
As a leading provider of inspection and testing services Bureau VERITAS plays a vital role in ensuring we are always at the forefront of best practices in providing non-hazardous product. Material Safety Data Sheets confirming non-hazardous classification are compiled by Bureau VERITAS following inspection of all Add Seal formulations and consideration of raw material compounds used.
Passenger and commercial tyres containing Add Seal were submitted to Smithers RAPRA Technology Limited and tested according to ECE Regulation 54/30. These regulations are used to evaluate the integrity of new commercial and passenger car tyres. The tyres were punctured in three locations (inner, outer and centre rib) with a 6mm tool. The tyres were drum tested under load for periods as stipulated by the Regulations and “served as an effective sealant” for the duration of the test.
MIRA is one of Europe’s leading proving grounds and is used by automotive companies from across the world. Once the RAC had seen how effective the Emergency sealant formulation was, they commissioned a comprehensive test, subjecting a punctured/sealed tyre to unreal-world driving dynamics and road surfaces. The sealant passed this test and the tyre was still inflated 48 hours later.
ECO Sustainable Solutions is one of the UK’s leading organics recycling companies and has been using Add Seal as part of its fleet management practice. Typically, the company experienced over ten punctures per week. This cost £100 in repair costs and approximately an hours’ downtime per incident. Since DTS included Add Seal as part of the ‘’managed service’, ECO now suffers less than three punctures per week across all locations, saving between £36,000 and £57,000 a year in downtime.
Holme Sand & Ballast have leased this site for a limited number of years and there are restrictions when it can be worked. With three loading shovels undertaking a range of tasks, including mixing and blending product, depositing raw materials into a centralised plant and loading up to 100 customer lorries a day, there is no time for puncture related breakdowns.
We took the huge step of adopting Add Seal in order to give our customers a better service. Although the repair costs represented income for DTS, the downtime incurred by the client was far worse and so we recommended using Add Seal. Now all our clients rely on it too.
Mobility scooter importer and engineering company TGA use Add Seal to improve their customer’s scooter ownership experience, providing peace of mind and far fewer incidents. Their forty strong dealer network appreciate this too, as it saves thousands of pounds per annum on call-out costs.
Since using Add Seal I haven’t had to rely on my tyre fitter to get my vehicles moving after suffering a puncture. Thanks to Add Seal's capabilities my fleet stays on the move which saves me time and most importantly money.
'Brendan Guinan - Managing Director'
We are a sawmill and treatment plant, but are also involved in waste and recycling. Punctures used to stop our production but since using Add Seal our operation runs smoothly.
'John Brooke - Owner'
We manage a great deal of waste for Impetus Waste Management with vehicles going on and off road daily, punctures were a huge problem. We had considered using a sealant and asked our tyre contractor what they thought and whether they would fit the product for us for assessment. It’s working and we’re still using it and expect to do so for the foreseeable future.
We tested Add Seal and it was effective so we’ve fitted it to all our vehicles. We monitor the results carefully and noticed that using the product has prevented downtime and repair costs. We intend to continue using it.
'Ryan Sodhi - Director'
As our site is a closed landfill, Gas field and inert recycling centre we get a lot of punctures from reinforcing bars, lumps of concrete and other hidden objects. Since we have been using Add Seal from Late September 2014 I have not needed to call out tyre companies for tyre repairs and we are saving £300.00 per month plus down time from our own staff.
'Denis Jay - Site Manager'
We haven’t had a puncture since using Add Seal. I decided to use it to avoid the expense of solid fill tyres. It does exactly what it says on the drum.
'Nathan Pidgley - Vehicle Manager'
Add Seal has been excellent, since it’s been installed we have not had to pump our tyres up every morning or repair punctures. We check our tyre pressures once a week and no problem. The lads are pleased with it and overall I have saved money. Anyone that uses Add Seal will not be disappointed.
'Andrew Harding – Director'
The quality of Add Seal is of such high standard that productivity has improved and downtime has been reduced. I will definitely keep on using it.
'Alec Brown – Mechanic'
In January this year we tested the Add Seal compound in our RCV’s as we put most of our waste onto land fill. The majority of our problems are caused by punctures picked up on these sites and with call out charges and down time it was an ever increasing burden on our budget. Since using Add Seal the number of on site punctures has reduced. As such we are now in the process of ordering enough product to service the whole fleet.
'Michael Hewins – Transport Manager'
I installed Add Seal 7 months ago into a troublesome JCB front loader, I haven’t had to deal with a puncture since. If you don’t already use Add Seal I recommend that you do.
'Rhodri Davies- Director'
Add Seal is a great solution to eradicate punctures, reduce downtime and increase productivity. A low cost solution with huge saving implications. Fantastic product.
