Wernick Hire units awarded green accolade
Wernick Hire’s Greenspace Sureguard units have achieved a generic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of ‘A’*.
This rating will help their clients lower their carbon footprint and also reduce their energy bills.
When compared to part eco units over a year of use, these cabins save 2.3 tonnes of KgCO2, equating to a reduction of 84%. A week’s comparison for same units found a typical saving of 226 kWh of electric and 43.98kg of carbon.
Wernick Hires Managing Director, Michael Thistlethwaite said: “Wernick Hire is truly committed to reducing carbon emissions both in our operations and the products we supply to our clients.
‘The introduction of the first EPC ‘A’ rated anti-vandal site accommodation unit to the hire market is something we are very proud of. Not only does this unit dramatically reduce CO2, it reduces primary energy use by 73% against its part ECO equivalent”.
The Greenspace Sureguard units also successfully completed a fire test at fire testing specialists, Warringtonfire, demonstrating that the cabins meet the vertical stacking requirements set out in HSG168.
