Introduction to Duralab Fume Hoods

GENERAL – The name Duralab has long been synonymous with quality and longevity. Our newly redesigned Fume Hood is a proud example of this reputation. Over 40 years of experience, combined with state-of-the-art engineering and testing facilities, provide you with a Fume Hood unsurpassed in quality and performance.

TESTING – Safety should be the number one concern when choosing a Fume Hood. That is why Duralab tests and certifies each style Fume Hood in accordance with the current ASHRAE method of testing performance of laboratory Fume Hoods.

The ASHRAE 110 test procedure is an industry standard, recognized by SEFA and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, for safe Fume Hood performance.

Our test facility is available for you to witness the ASHRAE test procedure or to test special designs. To make arrangements to visit our test facility, contact your local Duralab Representative.

DESIGN – The design of the Duralab Fume Hood provides you with maximum safety at minimum cost. Incorporating standard options, such as combination sashes and sash stops, allows you to maintain face velocities while exhausting less air. Hence, the Duralab Fume Hood costs less to operate than other conventional units.

REFERENCES – The American Industrial Hygiene Association, The American Conferences of Governmental Industrial Hygienists and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers have all published guidelines on Fume Hood face velocities and operating procedures. Because the performance of a Fume Hood is greatly affected by the surrounding conditions, the recommendations in this catalog are based on normal or average conditions. For recommendations on ideal or extreme conditions, the guidelines published by the above referenced agencies should be followed.

SPECIFICATIONS – Duralab Fume Hoods are manufactured in strict accordance with the specifications shown in this catalog. However, continuous testing and research may result in design and specifi cation changes without advance notice.
