    Solutions for Fume Control

    Gluing Process

Based on local and international health and safety regulations, employers are responsible for the health, welfare and safety of their workforce. Failure to comply will result in poor employee relations and possible legal action. Fumes that are present in the air of any industrial, commercial and home production workshop may cause breathing difficulties when inhaled.

With over 100 years’ experience in the dust and fume extraction industry, we offer a wide range of fume extraction systems that are specially made to filter the air, making sure it is safe to breathe – these systems can also be customised in line with specific applications.

Why is Fume Extraction Important?

A fume extraction system should always be included in an industrial environment or workshop where materials such as composites, woods and plastics are machined. Primarily installed for health reasons and in compliance with local and national regulations, fume extraction is important because it can:

  • Protect Your People

    • Solvent fume exposure can lead to a range of respiratory illnesses; from asthma to more serious conditions.
    • Higher volumes of fumes can lead to a fire or explosion risk.
  • Help You Save Money

    • A self-contained fume extraction system will reduce employee exposure to hazardous substances at minimal cost; over their full life-cycle, many of our units will cost less than a cup of coffee every day.

Construction Options

The following models are all available with our full range of fume extraction filters. For higher volumes of fume, consider our FP type fitted with our category ‘J’ filters – deep bed carbons with over 50 kilos of activated carbon in a typical 1270 x 660 unit.

What kind of Fume Extraction System should you use?

As an essential safety precaution, the perfect fume extraction system will depend on the application and the volume of fumes present within the work area.

Prioritising the safety of your workforce is a must! In compliance with health and safety guidelines, the appropriate fume extraction system is highly recommended. For specific fume extraction requirements and any other enquiries, please use our contact form.
