Load shedding is once again upon us. Those among us fortunate enough to own a generator can breathe a sigh of relief, but running a noisy generator can become an irritant for the owner as well as for the neighbours. The Shaw Silent Gen 1000 is about to change all that.
Developed and engineered by Wray Shaw, of Shaw Equipment (pictured above) – a Kya Sands-based company that specialises in the design and manufacture of specialised mining, construction and transport equipment – the new Shaw Silent comprises a full metal enclosure, which is powder coated for external weather conditions. This innovative sound-proof enclosure is neat and compact and can house different makes of petrol and diesel-powered generators up to 8kVA, and is available either with mounting feet or castor wheels.
Best of all, it is tested and proven to reduce engine noise by as much as 20 decibels. Practically, this means that your generator goes from noisy to virtually silent – instantly!

Features and benefits
Internally lined with 35 mm fire retardant acoustic foam, the unit boasts a forced ventilation system by way of two 220V industrial fans. Should the fans stop working for any reason, the power will trip, courtesy of a thermostatically-controlled switch.
The Shaw Silent provides easy access for generator servicing as well as for refueling, whilst strategically positioned gas struts assist when opening and holding the lid open. In short, it is so easy to use that even a child can operate it. LED lighting has also been mounted in the unit to illuminate the start/stop and refueling functions when opened.
The Shaw Silent retails for R14 950 including VAT (excluding castor wheels and extra high-density foam).
