Plastica offers a broad choice of corrosion resistant Plastic Fume Extraction Ductwork, Dampers, Fans and Attenuators
Various material of construction are available. Selection is dependent on various considerations, including, but not limited to,
Most commonly used materials
The Plastica ductwork systems can be supplied to the following specifications;
Of course, hybrid specifications can be developed to achieve project specific objectives.
Fume Ductwork cleaning can be accommodated to TR19 standards, and pressure tested to DW144
PP-EL/PP-EL-S PP-EL is an electrically conductive homopolymer polypropylene. This material features electrically conductive particles that discharge static. PP-EL has low surface resistivity and is ideal for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. In the form of PP-EL-S the material has a flame-retardant additive. For solutions in composite construction we also offer electrically conductive PP sheets in the form of backed sheets

ATEX means Atmosphère Explosible. Directive 2014/34/EU regulates explosion protection in mining and in industry and applies to any products (products = equipment and protective systems, safety, monitoring and control systems, and any components that are built into equipment and protective systems) which are used in potentially explosive atmospheres. ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU is applicable to manufacturers of equipment and protective systems. In the past each country had its own requirements and regulations for operating equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres. This situation was a hindrance to the freedom of movement of such products throughout Europe. In the light of European unity and harmonisation of the internal market specific EU directives were developed. In the field of explosion protection Directive 94/9/ EC (ATEX 100a being the previous working title, ATEX 95 after renumbering), updated by Directive 2014/34/EU, has been mandatory and in force since 1 July 2003. That directive now also includes for the first time essential safety and health requirements for those products and non-electrical equipment (e.g. pneumatic actuators). In Directive 2014/34/EU the products to which the directive applies are classified in equipment groups and categories, according to hazard potential. The requirements for equipment and protective systems also depend on this
Supporting our unique product range, we offer excellent design and project management.
We have an excellent team with many years’ experience of working within a new build, refurbishment or additional equipment installation project.
Fully comfortable and with the latest requirements including risk assessment and method statements, to working alongside other suppliers or contractors to achieving a timely project completion.
With this exclusive service we are able to bring together some or all of our products, in to complete packages, including design, construction, installation and commissioning.
£½ Million of Works Completed
Plastica have recently concluded 2 major installation for fume cupboard and associated equipment ventilation systems, for up-to-the-minute laboratory complexes.
One appointment was made due to the failure to complete by the original plastic ductwork contactor, Plastica were called in to conclude the PVC/ GRP ductwork installation for a new Integrated Cancer Research centre.
The entire project was at an advanced stage, making access to the work area challenging.
Incorporated within the scope of works included some 70-fume cupboard connection, numerous grille connections, and extensive riser duct installations.
Separately, a contract was secured for the design, manufacture, and installation of extensive laboratory fume cupboard extraction systems for a new research facility within the Oxfordshire area.
The exhaust systems constructed in Upvc included extraction systems from 60 Fume Cupboards, in addition to ceiling and Low-level grilles connections.
The project also required 16 roof mounted stacks, 6 metre tall, multi-leaf volume control, and automated bleed dampers.
