Airwave 800 – David Carr

A compact design utilising a self-venting Tesla turbine to create a high-pressure cyclone; separating out dust and sub-micron particles. The design features an inbuilt carbon filter system that the exhaust gasses pass through at a low pressure to neutralise any harmful particles within the air, thus cleaning the air of harmful chemicals.

The product has been specifically designed to allow for long periods of continuous use, with built in channels through the brush-less motor to allow effecting cooling and to straighten out choppy airflow.

Jobsite Speaker – Beth Sanderson

The jobsite speaker is a solution for music enthusiasts who desire to enjoy the music they love while working on busy industrial sites. This speaker system offers the flexibility to create a multi-room speaker set up, or just create a more immersive individual sound experience. The trio of speakers are highly portable as they are all able to be carried in hand when they are connected together into one.

In addition, on each speaker is a ‘Push To Talk’ button, also known as PTT. This is similar to what is found on walkie-talkies and permits colleagues to communicate to each other along greater distances. This feature helps make the workplace more efficient, by making the communication between people easier and quicker when in a hectic environment. Additionally, this feature will temporarily cut off the music currently playing, which can prove to be important when there may be a crucial announcement.
