Why Choose an ISG Fume Cupboard for Chemical Manufacturing

Our laboratory fume cupboards are perfectly matched to the requirements of the chemical manufacturing industry.

The polypropylene construction of the fume cupboards leads to a longer-lasting, more suitable, cost-effective solution. All ducted fume cupboards are certified and built to BS EN 14175 and ASHRAE 110-1995 standards.

  • One-piece polypropylene construction
  • Highly chemical resistant
  • ZERO corrosion over time
  • Built to your specification
  • Options for huge savings using VAV (what is VAV?)
  • Available ducted or ductless

Bespoke or Off-The-Shelf

All of our fume cupboards can be customised and changed, dependent on their application within the chemical manufacturing industry.

97% of the fume cupboards we install are ‘bespoke’ in some way. Sometimes however a standard size is requested or required. Below are some indicative specifications for standard size cupboards – if you would like more information about these off-the-shelf options then contact our team today.

We specialise in building fume cupboards for use in manufacturing chemicals, and that are designed to your specification. Whatever your exact application may be, your needs are almost always unique to you in some way. That’s why we believe in our motto of ‘customise, don’t generalise’.

Fume Cupboard Sizes Ducted


The ideal material for the construction of Chemical Manufacturing Fume Cupboards is polypropylene. Not just any polypropylene but Virgin medical grade welded polypropylene, as this offers much higher chemical resistance than other materials used in traditional fume cupboards. We can, of course, offer the traditional style cupboards if required but we would always recommend the significantly better polypropylene version (learn more about the advantages of polypropylene v traditional materials).

Almost any size of internal heights, widths and depths are able to be built. Whether you are looking to unitise as much space as possible in your existing lab or designing your lab from scratch we can build something to maximise workspace and efficiency while maintaining compliance and safety. We’ve built cupboards from 600mm wide to 4000mm wide so we understand the varied requirements you may have!



Lighting is very important to ensure safe practice and the obvious choice is LED as it offers a very long life with excellent clarity. Older types such as fluorescent tubes can prove troublesome.


Airflow Control System Options

A typical laboratory fume cupboard pulls air from inside the room through the open sash, taking hazardous and noxious gases/particles with it. Installing the right airflow control system can make a huge difference to your laboratory’s safety, comfort, and overall energy efficiency.

We offer CAV, RAV and VAV systems, although in most circumstances we would recommend VAV. VAV is more responsive, can offer huge energy (and cost!) savings and in some instances, we’ve seen it reduce the exhausted air volume by up to 75%. Check out our article on the different types of Airflow control for more information.


Safety and Compliance

Our cupboards are built to comply with BS EN14175 and also to ASHRAE 110 – 1995. There are many safety features that can be built into the design of our fume cupboards. These include low air flow alarms (both visual and audio), VAV (Variable air volume) systems to ensure constant face velocity and other systems such as fire suppression and fire collars can be installed to maintain a safe working environment.
