Safe Fume Extraction Solutions

Welding fumes are a complex mixture of dangerous metallic oxides, silicates and fluorides. Fumes are formed when a metal is heated above its boiling point and its vapours condense into very fine, particles (solid particulates).

Flexshield offers a complete fume extraction system solution to guard against these dangers.

Telescopic extraction arms are the preferred solutions as they capture the fumes and gases close to the source and move them from the operators breathing zone.

Flexshield’s concise range of local exhaust ventilation products include individual or central system extraction arms and extraction carts which are wheeled around the shop floor with the welding process.

  • Protects welder and bystanders from harmful fumes

Applications
