European quality solutions to workspace dust and fume problems at minimum cost
Many companies have air quality issues dotted around the site that are now being picked up by regulatory authorities. Fume arms are one of the simplest, quickest and economical ways to solve a polluted air issue, due to their effectiveness in the way they can capture and contain the impurities close to where they are being generated.
Workshops around the country have relied upon a fan in the roof or open doors either end of the workshop so the wind can provide the ‘extraction’. But this means you remove the fumes once the operator has already breathed them in and they then exit the building via the breathing space of all the other employees downwind. It can also result in a very cold place to work during the winter months, leading to more staff absence and resulting loss in productivity.
This was never common sense and is no longer acceptable practice.
The installation of a fume arm, pulled into position so that the pollutants are captured almost immediately, is the most efficient way to improve working conditions and these can either be installed with their own fan or, if the
