APEX Series Premium Fume Cupboards

Light & Bright APEX Fume Cupboards

Maximum working space, low energy usage and excellent containment are all on offer with the APEX fume cupboard.

The premium, advanced technology range has been developed in collaboration with users to meet operators’ needs. With toughened glass sides in addition to the glass sash, it provides a light and airy working space. And because the glass is thinner than the traditional twin skin of a fume cupboard, you gain extra space too.

The radius profile frontal design of the APEX fume cupboard range provides a smooth curved entrance and the high-level glass panel gives full viewable access to the internal chamber. Both the APEX-2 and APEX-3 operate at low volume flow rates down to 0.3 m/s.

APEX-2 Fume Cupboard

The APEX-2 has a single skin chamber which can accommodate a much wider worktop than a conventional twin skin design. For example, an 1800 mm wide APEX-2 has a wider internal chamber than a 2000 mm wide traditional fume cupboard. The APEX-2 fume cupboard also has a generous working height and depth, and the glass sides make for a lighter work space.

APEX-3 Fume Cupboard

The APEX-3 offers the larger chamber benefits of the APEX-2, with a twin skin side wall to allow service outlets to be side-mounted.
