ABERDEEN-based Aiken Group’s latest addition to its suite of products has received a warm welcome from the market resulting in international interest.
The company, which recently announced record turnover of over £26 million, recently launched its ‘Room in a Box’ modular accommodation innovation which has been created for the onshore and offshore markets to improve personal living space and provide a better environment with enhanced health and safety features.
‘Room In a Box’ incorporates a range of cutting-edge features including an automated upper bunk bed which enables stewards to lower the bed and change linen and mattresses without the need to work at height significantly reducing the risk of injury and therefore LTI.
In addition, the bed can remain in the lower position for rig crew on back-to-back shifts, negating the need for access and egress through bunk ladders.
An improved wet unit manufactured from a durable inert material manufactured in a patented fashion ensures no water ingress whilst dramatically reducing installation and refurbishment time and associated requirements for additional personnel.
An enhanced level of finish including features such as LED lighting and hotel style bed head units with HDMI and USB connectivity to enhance the aesthetic appeal for space users.
Commenting on the product’s recent launch, Aiken Group managing director, Danny Donald, said: “Room in a Box is already generating very good levels of interest from many of our key and emerging markets and we are pleased with the warm welcome this innovation has received.
“On the back of the recent launch and subsequent interest shown, we are preparing to travel to China, UAE, Malaysia and Qatar to develop links in these locations and we look forward to progressing the international capabilities of our exciting latest addition.”
Room In a Box was supported with innovation funding from Scottish Enterprise which has been working closely with the company over the last three years through its account management programme.
