The Observation2 Series fume hoods can be designed and manufactured with painted or stainless steel and has been designed and constructed with materials that are laboratory grade and are highly recyclable.

Our low volume option can result in considerable energy savings by reducing the sash opening size.

An Automatic Sash Operating System can be incorporated that lowers and/or rises automatically which can enhance safety and dramatically increase the efficiency of Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems.
