With energy costs rising Cunningham are leading the way with innovative solutions to increase energy efficiency
Why are energy prices rising?
Energy prices have been steadily rising over the year, but gas prices have been particularly volatile over the last couple of months.
A cold winter in Europe last year put pressure on supplies and, as a result, stored gas levels are much lower than normal
There’s been increased demand from Asia – especially China – for liquefied natural gas
How Cunningham are helping businesses reduce energy costs?
Since the covid pandemic rocked the globe and the economy, business has been adversely affected by increased energy prices. Energy prices have risen by 250% from January 2021 and an increase of 70% in August alone.
This has led to businesses looking at methods to reduce their expenditure on energy. Cunningham have been leading the way with their innovative products in line with their purpose of improving lives through the manufacture of clever protective covers.
Heating large warehouses or production floors are a massive energy burner in many companies across the globe. Cunningham have developed a number of solutions in this field from industrial partition curtains to concrete curing blankets
Partition curtains are ideal for applications in large scale factories. They allow a large scale building to be turned into a smaller, more controlled environment. This creates huge benefits with heating and also acoustic benefits within the organisation. The properties of the PVC make it effective in controlling the temperature of the environment. It reduces the cost of expensive energy bills by confining the heat to where it is needed in the factory.
On a smaller scale PVC strip curtains are ideal for door ways and windows, again they work in that they help reduce heat escaping, therefore reducing the need to use more heating and keeping bills down.
Concrete curing blankets
The concrete industry is an industry that has seen huge energy savings from the innovation of Cunningham’s concrete curing blankets.
Cunningham’s curing blankets are effective in they give the contractor greater control over the temperature of the concrete throughout the curing process. They are used to protect the concrete from unruly weather conditions during the drying process. Like all products from Cunningham it is durable and built to last, therefore reducing costs on the need for replacements.
On concrete beam production lines, our curing blankets reduce the amount of energy needed to heat the floor in order to help cure.
Cunningham has set its purpose to improve lives through the manufacture of clever protective covers. This is exactly what we are doing through our expertise and innovative solutions improving the lives of our customers by helping reduce their expenditure, while also improving the lives of everyone on our planet by assisting companies to become more sustainable and energy efficient.
