Product: Pipesafe Plug System
Innovator: Mark Stephenson
Company: Pipesafe Pty Ltd (NSW)
Pipesafe is a new three-part plug system which sits inside exposed drain pipes on construction sites. It comprises a filter, a tamper-proof lid and an interlocking plug that blocks anything from entering the pipes, and prevents the trip and fall hazard of protruding pipes on building sites.
Pipesafe?s interlocking plug protects pipes after they have been cut flush with the slab. It offers many benefits including:
- Occupational health and safety benefits
- Protection for tradespeople from contracting diseases from needles etc. in the pipes
- Provides a form ?insurance? against expensive blockages
Stage of Innovation:
Pipesafe is currently on the market. Interest has been received from large builders concerned with occupational health and safety issues, environmental issues and pipe blockages on building sites.
