“We manufacture our exhaust removal and air purification systems in the USA, supporting other U.S. companies and keeping funds in the USA. Our major competitors are distributors who sell foreign-manufactured products and that money ships overseas.
Also, departments receiving government grants are encouraged to use that money to purchase American-made products. MagneGrip Group products are proudly American-made and guaranteed 100 percent.”

Partnership Benefits Fire Fighters
The Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation and The MagneGrip Group have formed a partnership to help extinguish fire fighter cancer.
The Foundation provides education to alert fire fighters to the cancer-causing exposures in their occupation and it advocates for cancer research and presumptive legislation. It also helps active and retired fire fighters who have cancer with resource information and assistance during treatment.
With support from The MagneGrip Group, the Foundation is able to provide the latest information on protecting fire fighter health in the firehouse. Diesel exhaust particulate and gases are known carcinogens and, if not eliminated, exposure to these toxins can cause debilitating illnesses.
The MagneGrip Group furnishes AirHAWK 265 units to the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation at reduced cost for cancer victims in need. The portable AH 265 units provide air purification and germicidal protection.
There are thousands of MagneGrip installations nationwide including NASA-Kennedy Space Center, Andrews AFB, Stockton (CA) F.D., Norfolk (VA) F.D., Gainesville (FL) F.D., and many more. References are available. For fire departments and EMS facilities in your area that have installed MagneGrip systems, call 1-800-875-5440.
ISO 9001:2008 Certified
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced in June 2012 that diesel exhaust causes cancer in humans and called for tighter standards. A professor of respiratory toxicology at the University of Edinburgh told CBS News, "It's pretty well known that if you get enough exposure to diesel, it's a carcinogen."
The exhaust from engines burning diesel fuel is a complex mixture of gases and fine particles. Anytime an apparatus is operated inside a building, those toxic substances can be inhaled. Exhaust residue also adheres to walls and other surfaces (clothing, furniture, etc.) and is absorbed through the skin.
The International Mechanical Code (IMC), which serves as a guide for state building codes, requires that all toxic emissions from diesel exhaust be eliminated for the protection of those who occupy the premises.
More than 40 substances emitted in diesel exhaust are listed as hazardous air pollutants. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says these pollutants are “likely to be carcinogenic to humans and are shown to be a chronic respiratory hazard to humans.”
Based on human and animal studies, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends that diesel exhaust be regarded as an occupational carcinogen.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) says that workers exposed to diesel exhaust face the risk of adverse health effects ranging from headaches and nausea to cancer and respiratory disease.
To eliminate the health threat of diesel exhaust in firehouses, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says “the most effective means is to connect a hose (to the exhaust pipes of all vehicles) that ventilates exhaust to the outside.”
This is precisely what the MagneGrip "source capture" exhaust removal systems do. They remove 100 percent of the dangerous exhaust toxins, guaranteed.
