Fume Cupboards

University of York


Mach-Aire has designed, built and installed 10 Fume Cupboards at the University of York.

The Problem

The University of York is currently building an extension to their teaching laboratories within the Biology department to improve and increase the facilities for the Biology students.

The Solution

Mach-Aire was commissioned to design, build and install a fume cupboard solution for the University. The University was looking to maximise the space in each fume cupboard to allow two students to work comfortably at each unit. Mach-Aire designed a 1500mm ‘narrow stile’ fume cupboard, which had an internal working space of 1420mm to meet the University’s requirements.

In addition to the 9 x 1500mm narrow stile fume cupboards Mach-Aire also designed, built and installed an innovative 1500mm narrow stile DDA compliant accessible fume cupboard. This provides the user with a unique variable height work surface.
