Clean air solutions designed for the construction industry

From Silica to cement dust, we provide air quality products that ensure a cleaner and safer construction environment.

Intro

Construction remains one of the most crucial industries globally, playing an indispensable role in society’s functioning however it is one of the most hazardous industries for employees, consistently ranking among the highest for fatal workplace accidents. Common causes include falls from heights, slips and trips, and vehicle collisions however there is also serious risk to employees when it comes to airborne particulates. With all of this in mind employers must prioritise maintaining a safe working environment for their staff.

During property construction or renovation, tasks inevitably generate dust, posing significant health risks to workers. High levels of construction dust can lead to asthma, COPD, silicosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. Construction workers face a particularly high risk of inhaling dust, especially silica dust, which poses a significant health and safety threat.

At iXtract, we fully understand the risks posed by harmful airborne particulates to construction workers. Hazardous contaminants like cement dust, silica and wood dust are prevalent on construction sites, leading to severe health issues. Implementing an efficient dust extraction solution is essential to purify the airspace and ensure workers breathe safe air.

Particulates

Dust

Dust

Silica dust is a major concern, with over 500 construction workers dying annually due to exposure, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Silica, commonly found in rocks, sand and clay, is prevalent in construction materials. Tasks like cutting and grinding can release respirable crystalline silica (RCS) into the air, causing serious health issues including COPD, lung cancer and silicosis, a long-term lung disease with symptoms such as coughing and shortness of breath.

Fume

Fumes

Fumes from construction sites can originate from various sources, including machinery exhaust, welding activities, chemical applications, and material decomposition. Exposure to hazardous fumes can lead to respiratory issues, neurological disorders, skin irritation, and even long-term health complications.
