Vitreous enamelled steel for pharmaceuticals factory

For the first phase of the upgrade of the Adcock Ingram factory in Aeroton, Gauteng, Vitrex was called on to supply change room cubicles and benches, and Bitcon Industries, a division of Vitrex, was contracted to provide fire doors.  Cristian Cottino, sales and marketing director of Vitrex, says Vitraflex change room cubicles and Bitcon Rubidor fire door and frame assemblies were supplied and installed for the main contractor, Murray & Roberts Buildings.  The white Vitraflex change room cubicles were fitted with integral vitreous enamelled steel benches. Telescopic leg anchors were used to secure the cubicles to the floor. These facilitate cleaning and improve hygiene by reducing the potential for bacterial growth at the base of the stiles.
