EcoCone blast area cones

EcoCone - Oresome ProductsEcoCone sets a new standard in blast area cones.  EcoCone is comprised of two parts: the cone stem; the cone base.  More than 50% of the EcoCone is made of recycled materials. Both elements can be recycled again if the cone is damaged or destroyed. This saves money and lowers environmental impact of the cones.

NOTE: With PVC cones, PVC can be difficult to recycle given the presence in certain formulations of additives & dioxin, and it is not naturally biodegradable or degradable.

The cone stem is manufactured from low density polyethylene (LDPE), which provides superior hot & cold weather performance and increases the life span of EcoCone when compared to PVC Cones. Even in the hottest weather, EcoCone stands tall and vertical. No more soft and sagging cones in hot weather! EcoCone provides long term durability with excellent colour retention through the use of UV Stabilizers and low density polyethylene plastic.

The cone base is manufactured from 100% recycled rubber, is extremely durable & completely recyclable.

EcoCone has an easy to grip handle that facilitates quick deployment and retrieval. The grove makes tying off caution tape quick and easy. With 80% of the cone weight located in the base (compared to about 60% with PVC cones) the topple angle is almost doubled to about 80o off vertical (compared to about 45o in PVC cone equivalent) – excellent in high wind totally exposed environments.

EcoCone comes in two versions:

4-LZ12325          STANDARD 750mm, ORANGE cone with WHITE reflective banding, 2.5kg
4-LZ12342          HEAVY DUTY 750mm, ORANGE cone with WHITE reflective banding, 4.2kg

Blast area flag bunting

Night Vision buntingAn alternative to barricade tape, blast area flag bunting is a reusable option.  Fitted with generously sized polyethylene flags that are double-stitched to the tether to improve durability.  Available in red & white alternate flags – an industry-accepted standard (red-only available on request). Fitted with proprietary 3M brand Scotchlite™ material that is bonded to the tether the flags are double-stitched to, to achieve visibility similar to hi-vis clothing that complies with Australian/New Zealand Standard ‘AS/NZS4602-1999 Class D/N for day & night use‘.  Offered in 50m packs or 500m bulk box for entire blast area demarcation.

Our blast area flag bunting has one of the highest surface areas of reflective material of any alternative products available, making it possibly one of the safest on the market.

Lighning detector by StormPro2™ (USA)

StormPro2 - OresomeHigh-quality USA-design.  StormPro2™ uses a proprietary technology to detect and determine the distance to severe weather, which is virtually always indicated by lightning activity. Through the application of advanced electronics and proprietary software, its high sensitivity, single-channel receiver detects electro-magnetic field emissions from lightning activity within a storm cell.

StormPro2™ then converts this data into digital signals and feeds them to its microprocessor for analysis. In addition to identifying the waveforms characteristic of storm activity, StormPro2™ performs continuous analysis of background electromagnetic interference (EMI) at the user location. This function is critical for minimizing false-triggering from non-storm noise sources, and maintaining accuracy of storm data. A computer analyzes the detected energy levels on the frequencies observed, and then calculates the real distance in kilometres to the detected storm activity. In a fraction of a second, the StormPro2™ displays warning information on its LCD display including:

  • The distance to storm activity,
  • Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) measured from the users location
  • Storm intensity information.

StormPro2 carry caseJust as important as ETA, is the ETC “Estimated Time to Clear” information which is monitored continuously with 15 second data updates. Flashing LEDs and an audible alarm provide warning. StormPro2™ LCD continuously displays the time until the storm clears the area for safe resumption of work or activity, with the least downtime and maximum productivity.

StormPro2™ detects, identifies and tracks storm activity sufficiently intense to generate lightning within 100 kilometres of the users location. Thunderbolt operates in excess of 75 hours on a single 9-volt battery. A 220 VAC low-noise adapter, a hard carrying case, and a choice of desk stand or multi-purpose wall mount for permanent installation are also included in the standard StormPro2™ package.

StormPro2™ is ideal for drill & blast crews, surveyors, geologists, and mine mobile plant operators.
