We’re waging war on dust

masonry saws

Protect your employees. IQ Masonry Saws collect 99.5% of hazardous silica dust.

The UK Health and Safety Executive have constantly called attention to the potentially fatal effects of breathing in silica dust when cutting materials such as masonry, concrete, bricks, tiles, stone and mortar. The fine dust generated by sawing these materials is generally called silica or silica dust. It is too fine to see with normal lighting, but it can get deep into the lungs when breathed in and is now recognised as the biggest risk to construction workers after asbestos. In fact, silicosis is now a recognised lung disease that increases the risk of lung infections such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) that is estimated to result in around 4500 deaths annually.

Now Multiquip is doing something about it!
