Vehicle Exhaust Systems

Our vehicle exhaust product line is segmented between Emergency Services and Fleet Maintenance Services. Fire Departments and EMS Responders have different needs than fleet operators. While there is some cross between the product lines, it’s minimal.
We’ve been protecting emergency responders from diesel exhaust exposure since 1989. Firefighters have an alarmingly high risk of cancer compared to the general population and exposure to diesel exhaust is one of the contributing factors. Diesel exhaust is a known carcinogen and because of such the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard –1500 requires department’s to prevent exposure to firefighters to exhaust emissions.
Fleet maintenance garages are required by International Mechanical Code 502.14 to have a source capture exhaust system. The following pages show the various types of systems we offer and the flexibility they provide the end user.
