Low Level Cupboard

Low level cupboard and step-in fume cupboards are ideally used where increased internal height or low level worktops and drainage is essential.

We are an ISO 9001 registered company and all work and products, like our low level cupboards, are completed to all current British Standards and comply with the latest technical and safety regulations.

Chemical Stations and Draught Down Benches

Chemical stations are extensively used in microelectronics, pharmaceutical and educational establishments where both product and personnel protection is paramount. We manufacture custom-built chemical stations with or without HEPA filtered air supply. Exhaust is transferred via downdraught slots and perforated worktops then discharged and filtered and re-circulated. Laminar flow is to a minimum of BS5295 Class E/F.

The specification of chemical stations are: 

  • The wet stations can consist of 3 sections, top, middle and bottom
  • The top section can be a plastic or epoxy coated steel box housing fan and HEPA filter arrangements
  • The middle section provides the working enclosure with the front section having a vertically sliding sash arrangement
  • The bottom section provides a framework with cassette, worktop and extract take-off point

Internal linings and worktops are chosen for their suitability for the chemicals and processes used, and the materials used include stainless steel, PVC and Polypropylene.

Our optional and extra services include:

  • Alarm/control panels
  • Water front controls and outlets: cold/hot water, steam
  • Spray guns for wash down of worktop area
