First units of new game-changing connected single-gas detector delivered in North America
Calgary, Canada — November 1, 2022 —Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX: BLN), a global leader in connected safety technology, today announced that its latest industry game-changer – the G6 single-gas wearable – is now shipping its first orders starting in North America, with European order fulfillment to follow in the coming weeks.
“G6 is now shipping in North America, allowing us to begin protecting workers by transforming single-gas detection through connectivity to protect and save lives,” said Cody Slater, Chair and CEO, Blackline Safety.
“We are also pleased to announce that through a proactive strategy to manage supply chain risk, we have secured the necessary components to deliver G6 volumes according to schedule. Demand and interest in the G6 have remained positive, giving us confidence in an acceleration in shipments as we move into calendar 2023.”
Unveiled in September 19th, 2022 at the National Safety Council (NSC) Congress and Expo, G6 is a fully connected and intuitive solution that leverages the latest in Internet of Things (IoT), providing worker location data through its integrated location technology and instant cloud connectivity during incidents. Over time, data from G6 usage helps organizations get ahead of possible safety risks by leveraging visuals of high alarm rates and low compliance as well as data insights from its analytics platform.
G6 also delivers expanded benefits such as a full-year battery life, lower total cost of ownership and fewer false alarms. More importantly, it gives safety professionals access to the trusted data they need to manage their safety protocols, processes, and ongoing compliance more effectively and efficiently.
“We’re excited to get our hands on G6 and introduce it to our clients who are looking for single-gas devices with longer battery life and access to data that helps protect lives,” said CJ Gregg, CEO, Becker Safety and Supply, a Blackline distributor, who received one of the first orders.
Blackline Safety is also at ADIPEC (Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Expo and Congress) this week giving companies across the Middle East a first look at G6. Certifications and first shipping for Europe and Rest of World are expected later this month.
