Introducing… theloghut.com

We are happy and excited to announce the brand new opening of The Log Hut.

Part of The Chemical Hut, The Logs Hut offers a fantastic variety of top quality burning fuels, from Peat Heat, to Premium Ash Kiln Dried Logs, to Instant Light BBQ bags.

All of our Kiln Dried products are sustainably sourced from Latvian forests where annual quotas for reforestation are implemented to ensure future sustainability and care for nature. Quality is of the up-most importance.

Our Kiln Dried Logs are all processed using state of the art Italian engineered driers, with a maximum load capacity of 120 cubic meters per kiln. All of the timber is carefully inspected after kilning to ensure even and thorough drying containing a water content of less than 20%.

15kg Kiln Dried Logs only £8.86 inc VAT

CLP Changes are beginning to arrive…

As our stock arrives with the new and updated labels containing the CLP product labels, we are updating them on our website accordingly, along with the Safety Data Sheets which accompany them.

If you are still unsure/unaware of the changes and what they mean, all the information you need is below.

As from the 1st June 2015 all new products sold by the TheChemicalHut will be labelled using the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

This change is being implemented in the European Union via the Classification, Labelling and Packaging regulation (CLP), previously all chemical products were labelled and regulated under CHIP.

What has changed under CLP?

In many ways nothing has changed from a product perspective, but rather, a new system of thresholds and calculations mean that manufacturer’s have to adjust the way certain products are labelled.

Products that contain ingredients or a cocktail (multiple ingredients) which exceed the new threshold of 3% (previously 10%) will now be labelled differently to highlight the potential for risk if exposed to the eyes or skin in it’s raw form.

This means that many products previously unclassified by CHIP will be classified under CLP, with pictograms that make them appear more serious.

Does this mean that products classified under CLP are now more dangerous or harmful?

No.  Nothing has changed in the chemical strength or make-up of any of the products that we sell but rather the threshold for classification has been significantly lowered. The globally harmonised system is aimed to help educate how individual(s) and organisation(s) use products so that the potential risk to the eyes and skin is minimised and understood.

Many professional washing up liquids which were previously unclassified under CHIP will now carry the new “corrosion” symbol under CLP. The chemical properties of these products remain unchanged, however, the adjustment in threshold means that it needs to be classified differently.

Why? Because products such as these are designed to break down fat and grease that remain on dishes and cups, therefore, undiluted contact with the eye may cause serious damage in the same way many other products would if used incorrectly.

Therefore, it is essential that all products are treated and handled according to the new pictograms, statements and signal words. This means that the old Indication of Danger words that are used with the orange square Hazard Symbols such as “Corrosive, Irritant and Harmful” will be replaced with two new Signal Words, these will be “Danger” for all severe hazards and “Warning” for all others. (As illustrated above).

In addition, the “Risk Phrases(R)” are changing to “Hazard Statements(heart)” and “Safety Phrases(S)” are changing to Precautionary Statements(S).

Does CLP have it’s draw-backs?

Yes. Of great concern is that the appearance of the “corrosion” symbol on many products (such as washing up liquid) which many have been used for years without incident may desensitise users resulting in serious injury.

For example, the same “corrosion” symbol will appear on powerful carbon/oven cleaners which if used or treated in the same way as washing up liquid may indeed lead to serious skin and eye injuries.

Therefore, it’s essential manufacturer’s and suppliers raise awareness of the products and there correct usage but this also means that organisations and companies that supply these products for use by employee’s are legally obliged to revisit there COSHH and Risk Assessments based on the new Hazard and Precautionary Statements.

We’ll be posting more information on how we can help with this soon … so stay posted.
