The Right Dusttool Shroud For Every Use

Are you a craftsman dealing with dust on the job?

There are various types of construction and remodelling work that create enormous amounts of dust as a byproduct. Sanding, grinding, drilling, cutting, chiselling, and hammering tools all generate dust. Job site dust gets everywhere - on equipment, floors, and other surfaces. But it’s more than just a nuisance; it’s extremely toxic for everyone in the area.

There’s a reason workplace safety agencies around the world are growing increasingly concerned about the dangers of dust. Regularly inhaling construction dust can cause diseases like lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and silicosis. Studies show that over 2,000,000 construction workers are exposed to toxic dust every year*.

For over 40 years MAXVAC has been a global leader in supplying industries with solutions to maintain safe, healthy working environments. We’ve developed a complete range of dusttool shrouds that are simple to use, allow for maximum visibility, and provide unmatched dust extraction in all situations.

One of the most efficient ways to control dust is to use a shroud on the tool itself. This eliminates dust at source and not only protects your lungs and lengthens the life of your
power tools, it gives unsurpassed visibility and keeps your job site clean. This enables you to deliver a superior quality of work to drastically reduce clean up time and most importantly, keep your team healthy.

Let’s take a look at each of our Dusttool® Shroud offerings and see exactly how they can help you improve quality of life on the job.

Cleaning Up The Industry

One of the most dangerous factors involved is complacency. Hard-working teams tend to ignore dust because they think it’s not going to harm them.

The reality is, dust from cutting, grinding, drilling, and hammering is extremely dangerous. The consequences of failing to control on-site dust are long-lasting and irreversible respiratory issues.

Layers of dust buildup are easy to spot, but it’s actually the invisible dust particles that are the most dangerous. The smaller the particle, the deeper they penetrate into the body and lungs.

Approximately 12,000 people die each year due to occupational respiratory disease.** These deaths are completely avoidable by properly assessing, controlling, and reviewing dust mitigation procedures.

We have advanced beyond the era of treating dust as an unfortunate inevitability. Our commitment to innovation in dust suppression puts us at the forefront of the industry. The law places responsibility on all those involved in construction work. That means everyone has a role to play when it comes to managing risk.

MAXVAC was created to provide a safe, healthy working environment for every person exposed to job site dust. Our Dusttool Shrouds are unmatched in quality and efficacy, and eliminate dust at the source.
