6 new woodworking products designed for dust extraction of small workshops, schools and colleges.
"Sawing, routing, milling and particularly sanding processes are known to generate inhalable dust, with the potential to create lung disease and breathing problems unless appropriate extraction systems are in place,"
"If not captured through effective local exhaust ventilation (LEV), this fine particulate can lead to occupational asthma, skin disorders, rhinitis and, in the case of hardwood dust, a rare type of nasal cancer. The fumes associated with dyes and solvents also need to be managed effectively."
"What’s commonly overlooked is that as well as having a primary health benefit, a properly designed and installed extraction system also delivers productivity gains because maintaining a dust-free environment keeps machinery in optimum working condition and can avoid costly downtime caused by equipment contamination,"says John Horsey.
