Fume Cupboards: Necessary Consideration for New School Build and Refit
Fume cupboards protect staff and students from harmful chemicals and dusts. Without it, the school can’t fully deliver the National Curricula and most exam specification for practical science, D&T and art.
When designing a new school building, it is therefore vital to consider the fume cupboard systems at the very start, as you may need provision for ductwork, including a stack. When deciding on a system, ducted fume cupboards are always the best choice. However, if it’s not a practical option, you can install a re-circulating fume cupboard.
