The Waldner Cup

Writing this article my mind drifts back 6 years ago to a bar called Ruben’s in Stuttgart Germany, while on a business trip Joe Hanrahan & I stopped off for a drink to discuss the days meetings and to discuss marketing strategies for Waldner Ireland, Joe being a golfer was pushing me to try something different (he was also looking for a day out) he suggested we hold a golf competition, going on to say that in time it could be as big as the Ryder Cup – I taught this was taking being positive to whole new level & not being a golfer myself, I was a little unsure that this would be the best use off our resources.

I don’t say this often but – I WAS WRONG! (although still not as big as the Ryder Cup – YET)

Each year the event gets bigger and bigger, last year we had 80 people playing golf at Mount Juliet and 140 people attended the dinner and presentations after – this year the Waldner Cup will be held in the Heritage Golf Resort on friday 11th May and we have really pushed the boat out this time – the winner of the Waldner Cup 2018 will receive 2 tickets to the RYDER CUP in France with flights and accommodation included – so all you golfers attending – get practicing………….

The Waldner Cup is sponsored by Complete Storage Solutions, TBI Scientific & Waldner Ireland and on behalf of our entire team we look forward to seeing you all and wish all you golfers the very best, for all you non golfers joining myself, I have plenty of chairs at the bar and as always looking forward to having the crack.

Concept to Completion

TBI Scientific completely develop their own drawings with a design department that have expertise in both AutoCAD & Revit. This means that as well as giving their  clients Plan and Elevation drawings, they  can also offer 3D renders, allowing the end users to grasp the overall design concept  before installation.

This method of layout planning utilizes 2D & 3D renderings to clarify the intended space utilization, existing requirements and features, connections, area dimensions, interfaces and all other relevant information.


The laboratory will become clearly conceivable for you through the 3D drawing. We will then refine the details together with you. In the next stage of the presentation, your laboratory will be almost “accessible” in colour and with clear, differentiated depth in the rendered representation. You will be able to see your laboratory from all angles. As a logical conclusion to our precise planning and design work, the laboratory will be installed in your building


TBI Scientific’s design and project management team of designers and expert fitters carry the latest state of the art equipment, and have a wealth of knowledge with all ranges of laboratory furniture systems.



The Bimos Revolution

Sitting down will never be the same again!

On average people spend 9.3 hours sitting down per day. That is a long period of time for the human body to be in one position.

The less mobile our bodies, the higher the likelihood of soft tissue stiffness, joint capsule tightness and general range of movement restrictions. The impact on overall health can be severe.

Having the correct chair in your working environment is vital for health and productivity.

Bimos for the last 50 years have been pioneers in this industry, with their thought process being about solution rather than product. They have become the leading manufacturers in Europe for laboratory and industry chairs combining science, functionality and style.

TBI Scientific are the proud exclusive distributors of Bimos in Ireland. We love the fact that we are changing and enhancing lives with a product that people would not normally put a lot of thought into, although they spend so much of their day on. We supply a 10 Year Warranty and International Safety Certificates for all of our chairs.

Fire Protection

Fire Protection and Prevention in the workplace should always be at the forefront of employers and employees thought process.

Not only is it critical, it is the law.  Under Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) every employer shall identify hazards, assess risks and have a written risk assessment, including any unusual or other risks.

Below is a quick guide to Fire Safety in the Workplace. For more information, please visit HSA FIRE SAFETY

There are 3 critical components for a correct Fire Safety and Risk Assessment in the Workplace.


Fire Prevention

A fire needs three elements to start or spread – Heat, Oxygen and Fuel.

Correct Equipment should be used to remove one or more of these elements.

Risk assessments should be carried out to detail risks and minimize the start of spread of fire.




Fire Detection and Warning 

Consideration must be given to any parts of the workplace where a fire could start and spread undetected.

Asses what type of detection system needs to be in place for your specific workplace. IS 3218 will give a better understanding of what procedure to use.

Suitable electrically operated fire warning system, with manual call points positioned both on exit routes and adjacent to final exits should be installed.

Fire safety measures and equipment in the workplace must be kept in effective working order.



Emergency Escape and Fire Fighting

Emergency procedures must be in place and practiced.

Time available for escape must be evaluated and routes kept clear at all times.

An emergency plan must be in place with instruction and training for employees.

Fire-fighting equipment must be in place for employees to use.


                               Always Consult with your local fire authority for best practice

The “C” Word


It’s time to talk about the “C” word. In the Life Sciences industry, we can all sometimes become numb to the words, conditions or substances that we use on a daily bases. We can forget the power harnessed by these componants and that the consequences that fall back on us.

Chemical substances can be chemical elementschemical compoundsions or alloys. They are the backbone of the Life Sciences Industry and if not handled and stored properly can also have devastating effects.

Just this year, April 2017,  the Cancer Research UK laboratory in Manchester was destroyed through fire, with years of research and millions of pounds of life-saving equipment feared to have been destroyed in the blaze. Fire in Manchester

Proper storage of Chemical Substance should not be a choice, it should be a must.

Storage with No Fire Resistance, the chances of survival, not just damage to the surrounding building are massively reduced.

Storage with 30 Minutes Fire Resistance, the chances of survival and damage to the surrounding building have increased – Provided that all personnel and emergency services can evacuate the building and extinguish the fire in that time frame.

Storage with 90 Minutes Fire Resistance, the chances of survival and damage to the surrounding building have substantially increased – This time frame gives individuals and emergency services the adequate time to evacuate and extinguish the fire, knowing that the CHEMICALS harnessed in the building have no chance of contact the fire.



TBI Scientific and asecos storage cabinet range are the only providers in the market to offer 90 minutes Fire Resistance and a 10 year warranty, whilst still providing functionality and style.
