Effective exhaust extraction for smaller shops

An effective way to reduce exposure to hazardous vehicle exhaust emissions in your garage is installing an exhaust capture system that removes harmful pollutants from the indoor air.

Spring return hose systems are recommended for smaller working areas with a general working radius from 5ft to 10ft (1,5m to 3m). When exhaust extraction is needed, the user pulls the exhaust hose down and attaches the nozzle to the vehicle tailpipe. When finished, the operator disconnects the nozzle and retracts the hose by pulling the hose out a little further and the allows the hose to smoothly recoil upward.

A vehicle exhaust removal system can be made out of a number of different products, depending on your requirements, some examples include: Spring-operated exhaust reels (SER), Fixed exhaust extractor (FE) with direct-mount fan (FEF), as well as the award-winning FumeCaddie™.

The Plymovent FumeCaddie™ is a plug and play vehicle exhaust extraction unit designed to capture exhaust fumes at the source emitted by any vehicle or apparatus running indoors and extract them from the building. This user-friendly extractor provides clean air for you, your customers and your personnel. The FumeCaddie™ is directly connected to the vehicle or apparatus tailpipe with the easy-to-use nozzle, no adapter needed.
