Woodworking dust ducting is essential in all workshops to keep carpenters, furniture makers, DIYers, and all other woodworkers protected from the health and safety risks associated with wood dust, chips, shavings, etc. Using tools and machinery during processes like sanding, shaping, or cutting wood generate dust that enters the air stream creating unsafe conditions.
Woodworking dust is known to cause dermatitis, allergic reactions, and irritation of the respiratory system, and is a known carcinogen in the United States. Woodworking dust ducting works with collection systems to capture wood dust at the source — before it enters the airstream. Keeping workshops free of wood dust and other wood debris not only prevents health and safety risks but also lowers the risk of equipment malfunction by stopping these air contaminants from settling into machinery and onto worksurfaces, floors, walls, furnishings, and more.
Nordfab has been producing ducting products for woodworking shops for more than four decades. As an industry leader, Nordfab is known for its versatile and durable ducting, setting the standard in many ways with its modular construction and efficient operation. Here are seven key reasons why Nordfab is the brand to use for your woodworking duct:
Ease of assembly is a cornerstone of Nordfab's products. Quick-Fit Ducting, for instance, can be installed by virtually anyone. Gripple hangers and simple clamps keep components in place and are simple to install. Best of all, no welding, screws, or rivets are required to keep this ducting snugly in place, and you don't have to use any tools to assemble the ducting either. The easy construction of Nordfab ducting reduces assembly by 45%.
Another positive attribute of Nordfab's ducting is that it's reusable. Just as assembly is quick and easy, disassembly is equally facile. Essentially, users can unclamp components and reassemble them elsewhere quickly and conveniently. Because the construction is sturdy, you can disassemble and reassemble the products over and over to suit your needs. Consequently, you can make floor changes as often as you like and won't have to discard any of your existing ducting. You can reuse it in your new ducting arrangements.
Many woodworkers, professionals, and artisans admire Nordfab ducting because it can transition from one building to another with ease. An extremely adaptable solution, Nordfab ducting works right along with your existing ducting, which is one of its most revered attributes. Move your system or move your shop and you'll find that Nordfab's flexible solution can be moved right along with you.
A major advantage of using Nordfab ducting is its leak-proof design and efficient system that maximizes suction. Laser welded seams prevent any leaks from occurring while the manner of the ducting's construction makes periodic cleaning a simple procedure. 100% leak-free options are available for custom hand-welded items. Laser welding, moreover, ensures that seams remain strong for enhanced longevity of your ducting.
With their modular design and metal construction, Nordfab's ducting remains rigidly in place even for long runs. The modular design enhances their ease of assembly and disassembly too. It's also important to note that their metal construction is conductive, which ultimately reduces the buildup of static electricity, a common fire risk associated with woodworking. Manufactured in the U.S., every size of ducting pipe has been tested to ensure strength; collapsing is never a problem for Nordfab products.
Choosing a superior brand like Nordfab is important to many customers who prefer to obtain all their materials from a single, reputable source. Nordfab has everything that woodworking shops need, including hoods and manifolds for shop machinery. Nordfab's manifolds can connect to major woodworking machines for an exceptional level of cleanliness. Nordfab boasts a comprehensive catalog of ducting materials that can be adapted to virtually any woodworking workshop setting. Explosion isolation flaps, fume arms, sliding access panels, and other parts form Nordfab's lineup of superior ducting and ducting-associated products.
Nordfab has long been recognized in the industry for its outstanding customer service. Naturally, the company is accessible and helpful when it comes to any aspect of their ducting products, but woodworkers who require bespoke solutions for their shops will also find that company representatives are happy to collaborate on custom designs. When outfitting your woodworking shop with Nordfab ducting, you'll find that customer support can assist you through every step of the process including product selection, installation, and free system design.
