After months of trials working with Hilti UK, Peter Cox have ordered 97 AIC1000 units, which will help productivity by reducing the amount of airborne dust particles meaning less clean up and a safer environment for technicians carrying out work.
This demonstrates our commitment to our workforce and our customers as part of our continuous improvement programme for Health and Safety; not only further reducing the inhalation risks for our staff, but reducing the spread of dust in the premises that work is carried out in.
Features of the AIC1000 Unit:
- Safer workplace for technicians, less exposure to airborne dust helping create a virtually dust free environment.
- Less time cleaning, the dust extraction unit prevents dust particles from accumulating, reducing the amount left to clean up at the end of the day
- Dust confinement, this helps prevent dust spreading beyond the work area into other areas, such as into other rooms throughout the house
- Removes airborne dust particles created during construction work, such as hacking off plaster, drilling holes and cutting timber.
- It is suitable for fine dust particles which can be hazardous, such as silica dust.
- Reduces the amount of dust that settles within a property by creating a negative pressure area which helps contain dust particles within the area work is carried out.
This means that it’s not only safer for technicians working in your home but it also reduces the amount of dust settling, while reducing the dust particles moving throughout your home.
What our technicians have said:
“We have seen a noticeable time reduction when tidying up in people’s homes as the machine takes care of it whilst in the room”
“Clean up takes only a few minutes, and nowhere near as long as before. I’ve noticed when going home I no longer get dust falling from my hair after hacking off plaster!”
Steve Jameson, National Operations Manager for Peter Cox said: We are very proud to be one of the first companies to purchase the dust extraction units for all of our Technicians, demonstrating our commitment to our continuous improvement program and further reducing the inhalation risks for our UK teams.
Hacking plaster off can be messy work, this unit means homes are left with reduced levels of airborne dust in the atmosphere, which can take days to settle, causing less dust left on surfaces and carpets.
