Meeting tomorrow’s OSHA standards

Workers in the construction trades
are about to start reaping the benefits of
cleaner air, increased productivity, and
compliance with soon to be adopted
standards from the Occupational Safety
and Heath Administration (OSHA). A
new line of products has just hit the
market that combines the Dust Muzzle
with a Dustless Vac system. It’s the newest
product line from Dustless Technologies
and it arrives one step ahead of impending 2007 OSHA regulations.
The new Dustless Vac system may
look similar to other wet/dry vacuums,
but it boasts a lifetime guaranteed
primary filter that you can “shake out”
without taking the lid off, or just toss in
your washing machine at home. A second
optional Micro-Prefilter bag boosts
the filtration to collect fine particles as
small as 0.1 micron. And an almost indestructible
12-foot hose attaches to the regulated-flow drain so you can drain
liquids up to 4 yards away.
Combined with the Dust Muzzle,
this system eliminates more than 95
percent of the construction dust on
almost any job. An all-new universal
adapter for the Dust Muzzle puts all
your saws, sanders, tuck pointers and
crack chasers in OSHA Silica Dust Compliance
regardless of brand. An optional
Drywall Sander uses the incoming air as
a turbine to power the sander head. The
sanded dust is sucked right past the turbine
into the vacuum. And with extension
poles, workers can sand ceilings up
to 12 feet high without scaffolding.
The new standards will require
virtually everyone in the construction
trades to invest in better dust collection
tools, says Darren Diess, vice president
of sales and marketing for Dustless
Technologies. “There is no other system
under a $1,000 that can do what we do.”
Dustless Technologies was formed
from the 2006 merger of the Love-Less
Ash Company and Dust Collection
