Dura-Line Fume Hoods / Fume Cupboards



Colored-FHDura-Line fume hoods are manufactured for Total Laboratory Solutions under private label by BMC Inc, a reputable and approved SEFA member.
With over 50 years of experience, market knowledge, competitive positioning,
BMC Inc. offers state-of-the-art engineering and hood performance with ASHRAE 110-95 certification and approved testing methods.

Fume hoods or fume cupboards are enclosed safety devices aerodynamically
designed to remove toxic and noxious gases produced when chemicals are mixed or tested.  Within the double layer, cold rolled commercial steel (complying with
ASTM A 1008/A 1008/M matte finish) and epoxy powder coated superstructure, there is an inner chamber that promotes the efficient removal of fumes and reduces personnel risk of exposure to hazardous chemicals.  Industry advances created various composite panels that are heat retardant, chemical resistant and moldable in the form of a white fiber / glass reinforced plastics (FRP / GRP) and are now considered the most commonly used inner chamber and baffle materials for today’s fume hoods, along with Epoxy resin bases or work surfaces. All fume hoods should be installed, tested and commissioned by qualified mechanical contractors.

Our primary supplier / producer of all steel sheet material used in the making of DURA-LINE Steel Furniture and Fume Hoods reports that the average recycled scrap content utilized in the making of all 14ga., 16 ga., 18 ga. sheets of cold rolled steel product is not less than 25%. We are pleased to offer postconsumer and preconsumer recycled product to the marketplace and do our part to substantially participate in GreenGuard / LEED processes.
