Sound & Noise

Government regulations require employers to take necessary steps in preventing or reducing the risk of loud noise exposure, which can be harmful to employee health. Noise and sound monitors help you to determine exactly what needs to be done and where. We offer a number of devices, including: 

  • 3M/Quest Technologies Edge Range Dosimeters
  •  3M/Quest Technologies Noise Indicators
  • 3M/Quest Technologies SD200 Sound Detector
  • 3M/Quest Technologies ATEX Approved NoisePro Dosimeter
  • 3M/Quest Technologies SE-400 Sound Examiner
  • 3M/Quest Technologies Basic Sound Level Meters
  • 3M/Quest Technologies SoundPro SE & SL
  • 3M/Quest Technologies NoisePro Outdoor Kit


Hand-arm vibration caused by hand-held power tools can be extremely detrimental to the health of employees, as can whole-body vibration caused by machinery or vehicles. Both are extremely common in industrial workplaces. We offer several vibration monitoring systems to help you identify these risks. 

  • 3M/Quest Technologies HayPro Hand-Arm and Whole Body Vibration Monitor – A compact, lightweight device which is easily worn by the equipment operative.
  • Reactec HAVmeter – A small, durable device that can be carried throughout the working shift to monitor all types of vibration. 

Heat Stress Monitors

Shawcity can offer both Area heat stress monitors (which simultaneously monitor and protect groups of workers) and Personal heat stress monitors (to measure and detect responses to heat stress of a particular individual). 

  • 3M/Quest Technologies Quest Temp Series AREA Heat Stress and WBGT Monitors
  • 3M/Quest Technologies Quest Temp II Personal Heat Stress Monitor

Find out more about 3M/Quest Technologies heat stress monitors by visiting Shawcity online, or by calling us on 01367 899 533.

Temperature & Pressure

Shawcity offers a range of high quality temperature and pressure monitoring equipment from Systronik. Devices available include: 

  • Systronik Blue Line 2600 Series Temperature and Humidity Monitors – A range of digital display devices, including the FT30 (with housing), FT40 (with flexible spiral cable) and FT50 (with integral sensor)
  • Systronik Blue Line Manometer S2600 Series – A range of instruments ideal for the measurement of pressure, vacuum and differential pressure. 

Flue Gas Analysers

Every year around 14 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by incorrectly installed or badly maintained gas appliances and flues. Carbon monoxide cannot be seen, tasted, or even smelt, but it can kill within just a matter of hours. Shawcity offers a range of highly reliable gas analysers that can prevent this from happening in your workplace. They include: 

  • Systronik Blue Line Maxilyzer Flue Gas Analyser
  • Systronik Bluelyzer ST Flue Gas Analyser
  • Systronik Blue Line Eurolyzer Flue Gas Analyser
  • Systronik Blue Line Multilyzer Flue Gas Analyser
