  New Product

UV-A Meter

UV-A Meter - Tests invisible UV light with ease

The UV-A Meter is a hand-held, easy to use instrument, which measures the ultra-violet output of electric fly killer “EFK” tubes, giving you an instant indication of tube effectiveness and remaining life. The UV-A meter also monitors ambient light allowing you to conduct a pre-installation survey to optimize location and output of a new installation.

The UV-A Meter is ideal for auditors for increased accuracy of pest program reporting.

This device WILL be a must for every commercial pest manager, HACCP auditor, EHO, food production facility and PCO trainer. Available NOW, but hurry, initial stocks are limited. More information is available on request. Order yours today!

Along with Michael’s appointment, we have invested in a new office, computer network and phone system. The latter was important and a bit of a shock. Only now do we realise how many of your calls that were being missed due to busy lines. Our apologies for this and rest assured that your enquiries will be answered more efficiently in the future.

  Noah's Tool Time

Hi all, my dad tells me that Stanley Bostitch have upgraded their sensational pneumatic hog ring tool. The new model has a new, easy to load cartridge system and has larger (and cheaper) hog rings. This tool will ensure that your StealthNet installations will be more time efficient, cost effective and professional. Dad and I have found that all the jobs we have used this tool have had a reduced installation time and saved labour costs. Recently a number of our clients have invested in this tool and feedback has been very positive. If you’re serious about bird management, this is a must have tool.
