Everyone appreciates equipment which is always clean and in good condition. And DE are convenient to use. The DE system is easy to transport and store as well as quick to set up and reposition because the envelopes are super lightweight. Also, the DE fit onto the industry leading collapsible, portable Mintie ECU frame which makes work faster and more efficient. ECU-CC envelopes can also be purchased to use on the same frame, for customers who decide they prefer the additional options and performance.
When equipment will be used infrequently or because of the application cannot be reused, the DE is the right choice. Buy envelopes on a per job basis and when you are done, throw it away.
DE can also be used as a liner for the ECU-CC, protecting that investment while capturing the full benefits of its performance.
The Disposable Envelope provides contractors with a better solution for managing job costs while complying with containment regulations. Unlike expensive equipment, individual disposable envelopes can be clearly allocated to specific jobs and included in proposals and job costs. This also allows for easy scalability, bigger jobs can be accommodated with more units without a prohibitively large investment in equipment.
The Disposable Envelope provides facilities with a better solution for standardizing compliance with containment regulations. Use can be instituted system wide without a prohibitively large capital goods investment. Frames can be lent to contractors who are required to supply their own envelopes, ensuring that approved containment policies are being followed without relying on unknown third party equipment or risking damage to expensive facility property.
Advances in plastics technology now allow for strong, lightweight and light penetrating, fire retardant material. The DE is fire retardant to NFPA 701-04 test 1 and passes air permeability to the ASTM D 737-04 standard. Cutting edge materials and design give the DE a level of reliability and performance which has only recently become possible.
* The DE are currently available on the ECU-CC frame for ceiling penetrations, but the ECU2 frame and wall penetrations models will be available soon. Contact a Mintie Rep for more information.
