Our UK 'Centre of Excellence' has been expanded with additional workshop and more space for office areas.
In everything we do, we want to show genuine commitment to sustainability and reducing environmental impact. That’s why we have made every endeavour in installing facilities with minimum carbon footprint while still ensuring comfortable working conditions.
We decide against conventional light bulbs and use LEDs instead due to their energy efficiency and much lower maintenance and replacement costs required. Lighting systems are designed to enable switching on/off separate zones so that lights are on only in the areas they need to serve.
Compared to conventional heaters that heat the air and make it stuffy, infrared heating is more efficient because the heat is immediately absorbed by the bodies and space where people actually work without any heating energy loss in the process. Indeed infrared heaters are able to convert close to 90% of the electricity into actual heat and since heat is produced through electromagnetic waves, the productivity rate of heat is almost 100%. Further, the fact that a person can feel the warmth within 5 minutes after turning the heating panel on makes it even more efficient, economic as well as environmental and user friendly solution.
Second insulating roller shutter
Along with the roller shutter readily available from the building where we rent our premise, REAPsystems use our own budget to install a second insulating roller shutter to prevent heat from passing through the materials, which further enhances power saving and obviously environmental footprint.
Although we do not directly economically benefit from energy saving when coming up with these solutions, our belief in sustainability has always motivated us to be proactive about sustainable initiatives for everyone we are working with and every product and service we design.
As another practice towards our belief in sustainability, we decide to use reused chairs given their brilliant look and quality.
Our office now is now filled with green colour reminding us every day how green we want to aim for!
