Sanding dust issue solved
04 December 2018
Lyndon Design is a high-end designer and manufacturer of stylish furniture, typically supplying to the hospitality and leisure industries.
During their manufacturing processes, Lyndon manufacture parts in a range of hardwoods. An existing sanding booth was proving insufficient to cope with the dust generated during manual sanding processes and Lyndon approached AirBench to provide a solution.
Following a full site survey and demonstration, AirBench recommended a large, HEPA filtered downdraught bench from its FN range, configured to discharge via ducting outside the booth.
Lyndon installed the unit using their own team, and the bench has now been operational for several weeks. The workspace is a cleaner, more effective space; the Lyndon team are now happy to work within the booth. Operators have been able to move from Canister masks to paper-type P3 masks, meaning comfort (and productivity) have been greatly improved.
