For over 60 years the swiss company Lunor has built civil defense shelters, ventialtion and filtration systems as well as all other kind of high-level security equipment. The company has made a name for itself in producing some of the finest NBC-Protection available on the civilian market. For private and industrial applications there is no better way to protect personal and equipment from potential hazards. A blast door, for example is made from steel and concrete. It provides optimal protection agains radiation, pressure, heat, physical impact and gas. Shelter openings do not have to be the weak spot. Once closed, they are almost impenetrable and provide enough security for all civilian uses. All Lunor-Systems are constantly tested and being developed even further. They have proven their worth in many industrial contexts and saved lives and products world wide. With the right NBC /CBRN-Filters you are sure to get enough fresh and breathable air in every shelter. With Lunor, you do not have to worry.
The environment needs protection
While our world today poses significant demands to IT-Infrastructure, protecting nature also must always be a key issue, when planing ahead. The environment is very fragile and with every step we take, we influence the world around us. CO2 emissions are at an all time high, because our current lifestyle demands mobility. Traveling by car or airplane consumes a lot of energy and since that energy is derived from fossil fuels, we damage nature even more. But that certainly is not the only way we endanger a working ecosystem for our children. The increasing dependence on energy consuming IT-Infrastructure also poses a threat to future generations. The amount of energy that is needed for every Google-search might not be a lot, but just imagine what billions and billions of searches every day amount to over a few years. And it is not just that. The permanent dependency on services like webmail, cloud computing and more and more rackspace for hard disks keeps adding up. But to be sure, there is only so much our environment can take.

Thuba is not known in the broader public. The company is active in an area of the market that is not omnipresent. They have specialised on products and services all around explosion protection, a very important sector for chemical industry. The people at Thuba do their best to organise the best ex protection possible. By doing this they can save the life of many people working and experimenting with chemical substances. This is also what makes the company as interesting as it is: They bear a big responsibility and guarantee that their products are really explosion proof.
Fluorescent Lamps for Experimental Environments
Chemical laboratories like the products that are produced in the manufactories of Thuba: Fluorescent lamps can be very useful in the life of a scientific person. The fluorescent lamps are available in different versions such as a hand lamp or machine lamp. The lamps are also available in different temperature specifications: Some of the lamps are for up to 80°C others up to 130°C. That’s a great product for people who earn their living in chemical laboratories because they can rely on the fact that their equipment is explosionproof. This is a basic of their work: The scientists don’t want to get part of their own experiment of explosions.
Heating with explosionproof equipment
The fluorescent lamps are not the only product available from Thuba. They also have electric heating for heating gas or preheating it just for reaching the right temperatures for an experiment. The problem of normal heaters that are not constructed for the special circumstances of an experimental environment is that they are not explosionproof. If one has to work on a daily basis on explosion experiments one needs to know that one has good explosionproof equipment. This kind of equipment helps to be secure in an unstable environment.
Explosionproofing with Certificate
Thuba’s products and services stand for good quality in explosive environments. They can guarantee the quality just because of their explosionproofing and quality control. Neutral instances show their integrity: They have several certificates, such as ISO 9001:2000 or the CE mark that are renowed in many countries. Moreover many companies have made good experience with the products of Thuba.
Shelter is a keyword with different meanings for anybody. For people who live in rural societies, shelter equipmentconsists just of digging a hole for some security from wildlife and the dangers of wild animals. Technically more developed societies, moreover, do need shelter technology that can protect against other weapons than hungry tigers or lions. When the Rolling Stones sang their “Gimme Shelter” in 1969, one of the most impressive verses was the following: “War children, it’s just a shot away.”
Blast Doors: Equipment against Pression
By this time Vietnam War occupied minds of politicians, businessmen and every citizen; as the Stones song brings to the eyes, even children were part of this time of political uncertainty and insureness. They would have loved to be in the privileged situation of security and political sustainability. They would also have loved the shelter equipment from Lunor: A blast door that holds back the pressure wave so that drumheads are not exploding and people can live in secure shelters.
Protection Valves for Blasts
The whole equipment does not exist just from a blast door. It is not that easy to build a secure shelter in times of evolving technology and the possibility to use even biological or chemical substances for attacks. Today’s shelters, therefore, need to be protected with valves that control air floating in different rooms. Invention of air blast protection valve has broadened the possibilities and increased the security in shelters that need to protect in wartime.
NBC Filtering Units
Lunor’s equipment fulfils the standards of Swiss Army that are important standards not only in Switzerland but also in the world. But Lunor does not only meet these standards, they always are hooked on developing new models of their products to increase security. One of the most recent examples is the fact that Lunor’s engineers have improved the quality and specifications of their air filters: The new filters can handle more effectively bigger rooms because of their increased airflow specifications. It is important that an NBC filter is integrated in a shelter concept: Air needs to be filtered from harmful particles and gazes.
Valves for Overpressure
If an overpressure valve is integrated in the security concept one is protected against blasts as well. Every sort of protection needs to be proofed seriously because a shelter needs to be secure in a real way: No one wants his children to be in danger. And no one wants the children to have just a shot away from war. One needs serious shelters for real security.
The Stones’ Song has seen several adaptations since anno 69’: Having a shelter is something needed more than anytime before. It plays a role which equipment is chosen: NBC protection is the minimum that must be integrated in a shelter. Someone who wants to give children a shelter needs to be serious about security equipment.
