The challenge

Furness College is a college of Further Education (FE) in Barrowin-Furness (United Kingdom). It provides a ‘dedicated university centre’ combining brand-new workshops, salons, restaurants, ‘dedicated university centres’ and the very latest in technology.

The college was looking for high-quality welding fume extraction equipment to install in its engineering workshops.

Plymovent was challenged to look for a solution that would extract welding fumes effectively. Additionally it had to have an educational purpose and of course suit the design of the building. Without saying, the products had to meet the legal requirements.

Furness College has 300 pupils that learn MIG and TIG welding. They have two workshops of about 1,750 m2.
