CO2BUDDY - Personal and portable CO2 safety alarm

Life on the road can be lonely but with the CO2Buddy by your side you're guaranteed it will be safe. 

With pressures on supermarkets and warehousing at an all time high, it's now more important than ever that you can 'keep on trucking on' to ensure carbon dioxide (CO2) delivery or delivery of refrigerated food can reach its destination on time, securing the essential supply chain for the nation. 

CO2, or R744 as it's known in the refrigeration industry, can be extremely harmful if levels breach 1.5%. EH40 and OSHA regulations state you cannot be exposed to 1.5% of CO2 for more than just 15 minutes. 

The CO2Buddy is a personal alarm that can be worn on your belt or lanyard and will alert you to any dangerous levels of CO2 so you can take quick action to stay safe in the cab of your tanker or RTU. 

We are the experts in CO2 detection and have almost 40 years of keeping people safe under our belt. With the CO2Buddy on your belt you can rest assured that you are safe whilst doing the critical work of providing essential goods. 

"We'll watch your back, while you watch the road"
