Fume hoods are a critical part of any laboratory that deals with hazardous or toxic chemicals and it’s an essential requirement to have. They’re local ventilation devices that help protect the user from any hazardous material in the laboratory. It’s one reason why there are many guidelines that need to be accounted for during the design, construction, and implementation of such devices.
Below is a list of codes & standards that will need to be accounted for when a fume hood is being installed.
|Codes & Standards||What do they deal with?|
