Dust blitz boosts sales of Armorgard cutting stations

Work platform specialist Armorgard has reported a substantial increase in sales of its cutting stations with in-built filtration systems following the recent HSE blitz on site dust.

Latest sales figures show a widespread uptake of these extraction and air filtration enabled mobile workstations, which are becoming an essential part of measures put in place by construction sites to protect workers’ lungs from the likes of asbestos, silica and wood dust.

Firms across mainland UK were subject to a series of inspections by the Health & Safety Executive this summer focusing on dust control.

Growth in the dust extraction equipment market is also being influenced by a greater focus on collaboration between contractors and manufacturers to come up with designs and concepts for new solutions to health and safety challenges.

Armorgard Managing Director Terry Mitchell said: “Our approach of the last few years to focus on end user innovation is showing strong results with positive customer feedback and a robust, sustainable forward order book.

“As the company does with all its high-quality security and safety products, Armorgard sought end-user input on safety imperatives and design improvements.

“The CuttingStation SS7X design has arguably revolutionised on-site cutting, reducing exposure to noise and dust, and eliminating any requirement to provide a separate cutting area on site.”
