About Us

About AirBenches

A general introduction to the operation of our products.

Who We Are

Established in 1993 as WorkPoint Environments Ltd, we are a family-owned company with over 100 years combined experience within the dust and fume extraction industry.

All our products are built to order in our factory located in the East of England; all products are assembled from stock components allowing us to maintain short lead times.

We specialise in high air volume, low velocity extraction systems, providing a demonstrable working solution to a wide range of dust and fume problems.

We demonstrate our solutions on site prior to purchase, to ensure both buyers and operators are confident that our products are the correct solution and are usable in day-to-day operation.

We provide solutions to specific problems using standard modular components and filtersets allowing rapid delivery.

We have supplied over 10000 downdraught benches into UK and worldwide customers.

In 2014, we purchased the OMF range from Air Cleaning Systems of Cardiff following their entrance into liquidation, in order to broaden our product range and provide ongoing support to OMF customers.

Our solutions are generally self-contained. AirBench usually requires no installation; VertEx can be installed quickly in-house, and OMF can usually be fitted in less than one day by our trained teams.

Why Us?

  • Market Leaders

    We are the UK market leaders in downdraught extraction. We have supplied nearly 10,000 AirBenches in the UK over the past 20 years.

  • Service

    We have a good reputation for service and integrity and we are committed to our customers. We do not leave a customer unhappy.

  • Demonstrations

    We demonstrate our products on site with no obligation to you, so you can be sure an AirBench will solve your dust or fume extraction issue and invest with confidence.

  • Proven Solutions

    Because we demonstrate on site and have broad experience we can provide proven solutions to extraction problems. We can provide reference installations for almost any application.

  • Stock Holding

    All our products are either stocked, or made to order from stock components – meaning we can deliver new AirBench and VertEx models to short lead times – usually 2-3 weeks.

  • Experience

    We have been building downdraught benches since 1993 giving us more than 20 years of continuous manufacturing history; and as a team have more than 100 years of extraction industry experience.

  • Approvals

    We are proud to be approved suppliers to many of the UK’s largest manufacturers, and many of our smallest.
