Island Clean Air has announced that the California Air Resources Board has recently certified the company’s Duster 3000 downdraft for sale in California.
“This certification represents acknowledgement from a government body that over sees and mandates the strictest air quality standards in North America. It says that we are a safe and environmentally friendly way to remove harmful airborne particulate in the body shop,” said Derrick Swain, vice president of ICA’s auto body division. “While it doesn’t give the Duster a free pass everywhere, it does signify that we have met some very strict standards and hopefully this will allow us to have equally high level discussions in all the different jurisdictions”
The product is CSA certified and OSHA compliant, as well as explosion-proof and fireproof. It also meets the new 6H rules set out by the EPA.
“In essence, it will dramatically add to any body shops productivity by allowing them to bring the prep station to the car. This could certainly change the way body shops do business,” said Swain.
