Warwick Chemicals – Walkin Fume Cupboard

Warwich Chemicals – Walkin Fume Cupboard

Contract Value:- £21,303
Completed:- April 2016
Location:- Holywell, Flintshire, North Wales

  • Custom Made Walkin Fume Cupboards
  • Re-used Existing Extraction System
  • Cable Pass Though Port

From initial discussions with the client, iab prepared a design to replace 2no existing fume cupboards. The objective was to provide one large walk in fume cupboard, separated by 2no sets of 3 part sliding sashes. To minimize expenditures, the existing fume extract system was assessed and the existing extraction system was utilized.

After a 2 week design period we submitted a design to the client for the walkin fume cupboard that we felt would meet their requests. Once the design was approved, the unit was put into production. Overall the job took us approximately 6 weeks. Before being installed, the unit was provisionally put together by our sub-contractors – this meant that we could complete onsite installation in only 2 days.

To maximize usable space within the fume cupboard, the water supply and drainage was recessed into the left and right hand structures.

A fundamental part of the design was to eliminate trailing power cables from the external 13amp sockets and reduce the risk of power cables being caught by the 3-part sliding sash. To overcome this hazard, access ports were provided to the central service column, and the left and right hand service structures. Incorporation of the access ports eliminated trailing leads from the power cables and other service pipework from external pieces of the client’s equipment.

The client was extremely pleased with the outcome and is happy for us to conduct future works for them.
