The company employs two of the world's acknowledged leading experts in laser safety.
Our aim is to make the application of laser safety as easy as possible for all of our customers. Consequently we offer an extremely wide range of laser safety products to help you find what you need. This includes what we believe is the largest range of laser goggles available in Europe as well as high quality Lasermet designed and manufactured market leaders such as the ICS-1 laser interlock control system, LaserSafe PC calculation software, LS-10-12 laser beam shutter and CE marked laser blocking screens, curtains & roller blinds.
We strive to offer the best range and highest quality of laser safety products on the market.
With well over 100 years of collective experience in laser safety we are able to offer the highest quality of laser safety services, whether this is in the context of laser safety training, consultancy or test and certification of a laser or LED products. Over the years the name Lasermet has become synonymous with the highest quality laser safety advice and we have come to be recognised as one of the leading sources of laser safety expertise in Europe. With the recent achievement of receiving UKAS accreditation for testing to EN 60825-1, we are now not only the leading test house in the UK for such testing, but also (as far as we can ascertain) the only test house with UKAS accreditation for this standard. Below is an overview of our services:
With two leading experts in the field of medical laser safety we are particularly well equipped to deal with providing for the special needs of laser safety in the medical field.
We provide a wide range of laser safety equipment for operating theatres in which lasers are used and also offer laser safety training courses tailored to the needs of theatre staff.
Compact low voltage signs
These LED room information signs are extra low voltage (24V DC), low energy, low profile signs. Being relatively compact they can be mounted between door handle and eye height which ensures that they will be seen by someone intending to enter the door.
We are working closely with Cosmetic, Health, Dental and similar clinics offering Laser & Intense Pulsed Light treatments, to enable them to work safely and comply with the requirements of the Care Quality Commission . To this end we offer a large range of suitable protective eyewear, illuminated and non-illuminated safety signs, protective curtains and roller blinds, core of knowledge training, LPA support and help with Care Quality Commission registration.
Why is Lasermet’s Laser Castle so successful?
Lasermet presented the latest version of their modular Laser Castle at the 2015 Laser Photonics Show in Munich and were flooded with enquiries and visitors for the duration. The Laser Castle on show was featured the Handy Laser Welder system demonstrating the leap forward in Lasermet’s active guarding technology. Specifically designed as the certified, laser safety solution for OEM integrators, the Laser Castle is the optimum enclosure which includes the OEM version of ICS-6 interlock control system.
The Laser Castle is a modular, Class 1 laser safety cabin for Class 4 lasers, certified to international laser safety standards. It is available in a range of standard modular sizes to suit customer requirements and can be installed on site in 2 days – including all electrics, interlock control, lighting, CCTV and more. The passive Laser Castle can, optionally, be upgraded to the patented Active Laser Guarding system called Laser Jailer, which is ideally suited to multi-kW lasers which are used for laser welding, laser cutting and laser cladding.
To upgrade the Laser Castle cabin from a passive to an active system requires the complete inside of the cabin to be lined with LaserCamoflex tiles. These are sheets of detector circuits which are electrically connected to the interlock control system. The active system works in the following way. The interlock controller monitors the active LaserCamoflex tiles and as soon as any inadvertent laser beam strikes the inside of the cabin the interlock controller disables the laser safety input in less than 50ms, thereby rendering it safe. The tiles are easily mounted onto the walls and can simply be replaced in a few minutes if they are struck by a laser beam.
Alongside the active laser safety system for the walls and ceiling is the option to have active laser safety windows – called Glaser Jailer. This is also patented – as it works using the same type of detection system and enables users to view the action inside the cabin. Again, if the window is struck by a multi-kW laser the interlock controller disables the laser safety input to the laser within 50ms.
The Handy Laser Welder system includes the laser, active laser safety faceguard and active clothing, and the active cabin, automatic doors, fume extraction, LED warning signs and the Performance Level ‘e’ (PL ‘e’) interlock control system. Being modular, the cabin itself can easily be relocated and rebuilt – or even increased in size with the addition of more modular panels. Laser Castle is the ultimate, certified, failsafe, modular, rapid-build laser safety enclosure.
