Kanya UK have recently completed two specialist cabinets using the Kanya aluminium build system for clients Lonza. Following an enquiry from Kanya in Switzerland, our Kanya Specialist for the north of the country, Harsh Rao, met with Lonza, who were setting up a new laboratory facility, to discuss their requirements.
Lonza is one of the world’s leading suppliers to the pharmaceutical, biotech and speciality ingredients market. Founded in 1897 they now have more than 40 major R&D and manufacturing facilities worldwide. In their new laboratory, the testing cabinets are to be used for hair testing, where the tensile strength of hair is examined.
The cabinets have been especially designed to so that the client can control the humidity and temperature, with hinged doors at the front, and hand holes in the front panel behind the doors. The Kanya aluminium extrusion is used as the framework for the cabinet, which has been finished with a satin anodise. Connected easily together with the Kanya PVS connector system, the cabinet has then been clad with 4mm clear polycarbonate for doors, and to the sides top and base, with 4mm opal polycarbonate to the rear.
Just one of the many applications the Kanya aluminium build system can be used for.
