Ecoline 2

The high safety low energy fume cupboard

Creating Safe and Environmentally Friendly Working Environments

Ecoline 2 is a range of walk-in and drive-in fume cupboards for special applications including housing distillation columns and tall free standing test rigs.


Research, development and testing has proven that the highest Containmentstandards for operator protection and the most efficient Containment Factorscan be achieved by significant reductions in the amount of heated and conditioned air consumed, when compared to traditional fume cupboard designs.

We have been manufacturing and installing fume cupboards and laboratory furniture for over 40 years. Our Manchester offices, showrooms and production plant are always open to visitors. Demonstrationscan be arranged and third party reference and site visits can be organised.
