Enhanced Access Fume Cupboard
APMG has developed a fume cupboard that can easily accommodate wheelchair access. Based on the proven Airform walk-in design, the Enhanced Access fume cupboard comprises an adjustable height working level and an automatic sash. The working level is adjustable between 700 and 900 mm high and can be raised or lowered electronically using a one-touch control. The sash is also electronically operated.
We manufacture our products on-site here in Manchester, so any further modifications you may require to facilitate access can be discussed with our technical design team. We also offer a range of height adjustable tables which can incorporate equipment such as hobs and sinks – contact us to discuss your needs.
The Enhanced Access fume cupboard range has been type-tested to the European fume cupboard standard BS EN 14175 (Part 3: Type test methods).
A movement sensor can be added which automatically lowers the sash when no movement has been detected in a user selectable time frame (1 to 5 mins). If movement is detected the sash remains in position unless manually adjusted using the up and down controls. If no movement is detected over the time frame then the sash will automatically move to the lowered position.
The worktop can be fitted with our standard range of fume cupboard sinks and drip cups.
Enhanced Access fume cupboard fans & ductwork
For our Enhanced Access fume cupboard range we recommend our E-Series or G-Series plastic centrifugal extract fans, depending on the application and venting arrangements. Contact us for more information on this and on our corrosion-resistant ductwork.
Stay safe – Service & maintenance
We provide full service and maintenance packages for our Enhanced Access fume cupboard range, and for most makes and models of fume cupboard.
During our fume cupboard servicing visit highly trained, DBS-checked test engineers ensure that each fume cupboard, fume extract system and fan is completely fit for purpose and complies with BS EN 14175 and CLEAPSS G9 as appropriate. Contact us for details.
Fume cupboard type-testing
APMG has both the in-house expertise and the cutting-edge testing rig to check the containment performance of almost any make and model of fume cupboard. Our equipment is designed to exceed the type-testing criteria specified in BS EN 14175, offering added assurance that our fume cupboards perform to the recommended standard. We can also test on-site at your location.
