Hand and power sanding is one of the major causes of airborne dust in the workshop and is very difficult to contain. The use of vacuum cleaners connected to hand power tools on top of a normal bench restricts their use and so increases the probability that they will not be used and in reality only captures a small percentage of the dust produced, a good downdraft table will collect the majority of the dust before it gets airborne and is a very effective way of improving the working environment.
The OBS IA is a heavy duty commercial grade downdraft table designed for everyday use in the busy workshop, it has its own internal fan unit so once filtered the air is recycled back into the workshop. This airflow means very little dust escapes upwards from the workbench to pass in front of the operative’s face.
Available in two sizes OBS IA 2485 x 1000mm surface area and OBS IIB 2485 x 1265mm the surface area the larger unit is suitable for use with 2,440mm x 1220mm (8′ x 4′) sheets.
