Do you sell vacuum cleaners certified to ATEX standards?

Yes, the MAXVAC Range offered by Dust Arrest includes ATEX anti-explosion vacuum cleaners for the collection and disposal of hazardous dust in areas where hazardous explosive atmospheres may occur. All of these vacuum cleaners have been tested and certified to meet the requirements of the EU ATEX Directive.

Are accessories and attachments for MAXVAC Vacuums available?

Yes, we sell the full range of MAXVAC accessories, such as floor bars, plastic brushes, nozzles, connectors, and more. We also sell MAXVAC attachments, such as the WaleTale to prevent dust escaping from mixing mortar and grout in buckets, the impact hammer guard, as well as a range of grinder and drilling shrouds.

What Vacuum should I use for Asbestos?

Vacuums for use on asbestos must be a certified H Class Vacuum and must be used in conjunction with certified H Class Vacuum Bags. Once a vacuum has been used on asbestos, it should not be used on anything else, and because of the dangerous nature of asbestos dust, we recommend having your vacuum professionally decontaminated after each job.

Is the 125mm Angle Grinder Shroud compatible with 150mm grinders?

No, the 125mm Angle Grinder Shrouds are only compatible on 115mm (4") and 125mm (5") Angle Grinders. However we do also have a larger model which is compatible with 180mm (8") to 230mm (9") Angle Grinders

Where is the optimum mounting location for MAXVAC Dustblockers?

For best performance, we recommend that the MAXVAC Dustblockers are used positioned on the floor as dust naturally falls so this gives the maximum possible chance for the dust to be filtered before reaching a surface. However, the DB500 and DB900 models can also be wall mounted if necessarry.
