Why buy an M Class Dust Extractor?

Dust Class M
Medium Risk
All wood dust and dust originating from repair compound, filler and clear coats, plaster, cement, concrete, tile cement and paints such as latex and oil paints or quartziferous materials such as sand and pebbles.

  • Exposure occurs in construction related industries
  • Respirable crystalline silica (RCS) is a risk factor for construction workers
  • RCS is known to cause chronic obstructive lung disease, bronchitis and emphysema. Also, leading to loss of respiratory volume, silicosis and lung cancer

Increasing awareness of respiratory issues in construction workers is pushing the industry to implement safe guards such as IEC & AS/NZS 6033.5.2.69

What is silica and why am I at risk?

Silica is found in many materials common on construction sites, including soil, sand, concrete, masonry, rock, granite, and landscaping materials. Construction workers who perform tasks such as sanding, cutting, mixing, sawing, grinding, sweeping and scraping are at risk of being exposed to hazardous levels of silica dust.
The very small particles become airborne, these dust particles can be inhaled and breathed into the lungs. The dust passes through the airways into the small air sacs called alveoli where gas exchange occurs, and can be deposited in the airways and air sacs. Each exposure to silica adds into the total load of silica in the lungs and you may also be at risk if someone close by is generating silica dust.

If you are working or in an environment where crystalline silica is present you may well be inhaling significant amounts of silica dust. The most important measure is to reduce exposure to silica dust. Once silica is in the lung there is little that can be done to repair it. Wallpro’s DE-38M Dust Extractor is approved for Dust Class M (medium risk dust). With an innovative push and clean filtration system it protects against the dangers of fine dust particles by removing the dust particles before opening the machine.

With many other great features like a variable suction power dial, washable class M integrated filter cartridge, filter cleaning button and air flow sensor The Wallpro DE-38M Dust Extractor sets the standard for quality M Class dust extraction.
