Dan Simon To Speak At May 2017 Wireless Infrastructure Show
JUPITER, FL--(Marketwired - February 28, 2017) - GelTech Solutions, Inc. (GLTC), an innovator in the use of environmentally-friendly polymers for fire suppression and prevention, is pleased to announce that Dan Simon, its COO and Director of Utility Markets, will be a guest speaker at the May 2017 Wireless Infrastructure Show in Orlando, FL, the largest gathering of infrastructure owners and operators, equipment manufacturers, service providers, and others in the communications industry.
"After a year and a half in development, GelTech Solutions is now introducing its 'FireIce Shield®CTP System' to the industry, a unique FireIce formulation for fire prevention and multi-function delivery system designed to coat interior, self-support and guided towers and surrounding vegetation," said Simon.
Initial sales have begun in the southeast, GelTech's home market. The reception has been positive and is expected to expand nationally this year.
"Following best practices for worker safety and preventing fire damage to costly cables and structures during cutting, welding and firewatch is a high priority for the communication tower industry," Simon noted. "Damage from fire can range from incidental to catastrophic, not to mention the risks to public and worker safety, and losses can reach far beyond the obvious property damage. Communication tower owners and professional contractors are finding it's a small price to pay for peace of mind on these at-risk jobs," Simon added.
Simon served as Emergency Manager for Con Edison in Manhattan for over 40 years before joining the Company. During his time at ConEd, Simon oversaw underground emergency restoration and provided technical and system expertise during multiple crises, including the World Trade Center and Hurricane Katrina.
