AN electronic security and fire products manufacturer has scored an industry first by investing in an anechoic chamber.
It means that Elmdene International can extend the range of products it can test before sending them out to market.
The chamber deadens sounds and prevents electromagnetic waves from reaching the products.
It means it is the ideal environment for product testing.
Ian Moore, the Portsmouth firm’s managing director, said: ‘We believe that this chamber has the potential to reduce considerably the time it takes for us to test new ideas and introduce product lines, potentially by up to 50 per cent, giving Elmdene an edge over the competition while ensuring the highest possible standards.’
