    Metflex is a precision engineering manufacturer , producing a plethora of rubber components for a variety of industries

    See website

    The queen street site is being demolished – to make way for another fooking Tesco the only good news is that the company has relocated , not ceased trading , moved to a new site just 600m away in an industrial estate on the edge of town

    PS – the company website needs updating -

    The site has now been stripped – and demolition is imminent

    All that remains of the manufacturing process is the smell – raw heated rubber , permeating the shop floor – it’s a lovely aroma

    The buildings are all modern – so not much of a report , but I was bored and needed something to do

    The honest truth is that due to incompetence , I neglected it too long

    Anyways – here is pics :

    Lab fume cabinet

    Empty hanger

    Self closing fire door

    The “ mechanism “ – the red tube is some sort of ultra low melt point plastic

    Cardboard box filing cabinets

    Flow rate guage

    Big loading shovel – surprisingly totally insecured

    Boo hiss :

    Safe – titan fireproof

    Chemical tank standing – the water is only a few mm deep

    Display / expo stands

    What ? ideas on a post card –its some manner of extractor fan in a room < 2m square – with a powerpoint , a central heating radiator , protected light fitting , an unidentified unit on the ceiling , no furniture or signs of where any sat , black painted walls and a sign on the door saying “ visual fire alarm “
