Protector XL Floor-Mounted Laboratory Hoods (sometimes called Walk-In Hoods) accommodate laboratory procedures that require oversized equipment or maximum working height. Models with vertical-rising sashes meet the SEFA-1 standard of a low velocity high performance hood and may be operated as low as 60 fpm. Models with horizontal-sliding sashes have a loading height of 73.5” (186.7 cm), suitable for applications requiring tall distillation racks, extraction apparatus or large drums.
Floor-mounted fume hoods are shipped partially unassembled and require some field assembly (not provided by Labconco). They are shipped on 2-3 pallets, requiring placement of lower and upper portions, installation of corner posts, baffles, header, and sashes, and connection of piping and electrical (if included). Detailed instructions are available upon request.
