Why choose dust control systems?

Large concentrations of dust are a big problem in the construction industry, and, depending on the size of the space and the duration of work, could be a dangerous contaminant when breathed in frequently, and potentially lead to illness amongst workers. Construction dust control solutions are an effective way to remove these particles from the air and ensure the safety of all on-site.

Prolonged exposure to dust on construction sites can pose a major health risk to workers. Industrial dust control solutions offer full monitoring and control capabilities to mitigate the spread of hazardous substances such as quartz dust, artificial mineral fibres, soot particles, metallurgic dust, hardwood dusts and asbestos fibres.

Fine dust build-up is a serious hazard for workers and a genuine workplace safety concern. The dust can occur as a result of sawing wood, using grinders and grit blasters, and many other everyday duties involved in building works. These tasks produce industrial dust made of microscopic materials and have a significant impact on air quality, leaving workers vulnerable to issues such as: greater risk of lung diseases, shortness of breath, asthma, silicosis, COPD and asbestosis.

While dust control measures will reduce the concentration of what is being inhaled, it is also important to identify what types of particles are present in the air. Different particles pose different risks, and further health and safety policies or dust management strategies may need to be put in place alongside your dust extraction system.

National and local authorities will have their own air quality guidelines that must be adhered to. Different bodies across the world will have rules that vary depending on what they deem to be an acceptable risk for dust control measures. For example, the UK is regulated by the HSE, whereas Germany is regulated by the BG BAU.

By introducing our powerful commercial dust control systems into your working environment, you gain peace of mind that your obligations are being met, that employees are being looked after and that the risk of illness is greatly reduced.

Dust control systems: Frequently Asked Questions

What are dust control systems?

Dust control systems are largely used during construction projects to limit the spread of hazardous dust particles to other areas of a building. This works to minimise the harm these contaminants can cause if allowed to stay in the atmosphere.

These systems can consist of air cleaners, dust protection doors, air filters, air curtains and other forms of purification solutions. They are suitable for industrial, commercial and residential settings.

What benefits do dust control systems provide?

The overarching benefit of dust control systems is their ability to improve indoor air quality and rid spaces of harmful airborne particles – as well as preventing these from travelling deeper into a home, office or another building.

These systems are effective against a wide range of potential contaminants, including quartz dust, artificial mineral fibres, soot particles, metallurgic dust, hardwood dusts and asbestos fibres – all of which can be common irritants and health risks on construction sites.

Overall, dust control solutions help to:

  • Protect people’s health and wellbeing on construction sites

  • Reduce allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions from flaring up

  • Maintain cleanliness on construction sites, cutting down clean-up times

How do dust control systems work?

Our dust control systems work to both clean dust particles from the air during construction works, and prevent these hazardous particles from spreading further into other areas of a building.

A dust control door or wall is set up to ensure that dust and other fine particles cannot escape the area. An air cleaner is then ducted through the top of the door into the room, where it creates a negative pressure. This negative pressure stops particles entering adjacent rooms, meaning fine dust particles have no chance of escaping the work zone.

The air cleaner captures and filters dust, soot, fibres and more from the building site on a consistent basis. This helps improve the air quality during construction and renovation works, and limits the potential for health problems such as asthma, silicosis, COPD and asbestosis to take hold.

What are the different types of dust control systems?

Most dust control systems will employ an air cleaner with multiple filters, alongside a dust protection door or dust protection wall. HEPA filters are the most effective at this role, capturing particles as small as 0.3 microns, which is why these are present across our entire range of market-leading air cleaning solutions.

Factors such as the size/volume of the affected room, the extent of the dust problems and the size of doors and openings will influence the precise dust control system you require. Our experienced experts take the time to understand the parameters of your project and recommend the best solution to keep your workers safe and healthy in the most efficient way possible.

Additionally, there are also special systems designed for specific applications, such as hazardous dust containment and combustible dust collection. Again, we use our decades of expertise to advise on the ideal systems to apply in these unique cases.

Are dust control systems environmentally friendly?

At Dantherm Group, we engineer all of our dust control systems to be as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. Our extensive understanding and commitment to using efficient, high-quality components helps minimise the energy consumption and environmental impact of these systems.

Where would you typically use dust control systems?

Dust control systems are most commonly used during construction and renovation projects, where works are confined to specific rooms of a house or building. This is to make sure that any dust or airborne particles generated during these projects does not spread to other areas or threaten the health of on-site workers.

These systems may also be applied during water damage restoration works and industrial works.

Can I buy your dust control systems online?
