Is your exhaust removal system 100% effective in protecting firefighters from breathing exhaust gases and soot in the firehouse?

MagneGrip Group can repair and upgrades older exhaust removal systems -- including those made by other manufacturers. If system parts are still functional (such as the overhead tracks and ductwork), MagneGrip can convert the remainder of the system at a fraction of the cost of an all-new system. Since MagneGrip has multiple exhaust removal options, updating an older system can be easily accomplished.

Connersville Fire Department (Connersville, IN) had an old, no longer effective Exhaust-O-Matic system that needed to be replaced. In addition, the firehouses have low ceilings and tight aisles between apparatus. These situations are ideally suited to MagneGrip Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT) System that features less hanging hose.

Using a grant from Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG), three stations were outfitted with the Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT) System, the compact-system designed for firehouses with back-in bays, low ceilings and narrow spaces. The patented 100% sealed system includes an ambient air intake for cooler operation.

“The SFT System is great because the hose gets out of the way,” Battalion Chief Tim McFarland said. “The hoses in other systems would knock things over and interfere with our runs.”

Before the MagneGrip installation, the air quality was poor; fumes hung in the air and soot covered the walls of the firehouses. “The health of our firefighters is critical to us,“ McFarland continued. “With living quarters upstairs and firefighters working 24 on, 48 off we needed a system to reduce the risk of breathing contaminants. The air quality is a 100% improvement from before. We can feel the difference.”

About the installation process, McFarland added, “The MagneGrip team is top-notch. They are very knowledgeable and there was no question they couldn’t answer. The workers cared about what they were doing and worked together well during installation. It was a pleasure to work with them.”

MagneGrip Exhaust Removal Systems remove diesel exhaust emissions in firehouses to reduce firefighter risk for cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The patented magnetic nozzle provides an airtight seal and is 100% effective in removing exhaust emissions. Systems have wireless auto-start activation. MagneGrip’s 1,000° F rated hose is now standard equipment.

MagneGrip Group also manufactures AirHAWK Air Purification Systems with ceiling-mounted air filtration units positioned to remove hazardous airborne contaminants.

MagneGrip Group offers a free Grant Assistance program through FireGrantsHelp.com. Grant experts provide personalized assistance until a grant is found. The program includes local, state and national grant alerts, online grant writing training, narrative review and optional grant writing at 50% discount.

AirHAWK 3000 XL Air Purification Systems remove hazardous diesel exhaust and hydrocarbon compounds from firehouses to reduce the risk for cancer, heart disease and other debilitating diseases. Ceiling-mounted, the 3000 XL four-stage filtration units also remove airborne viruses, bacteria and mold spores as well as neutralize gaseous compounds such as benzene, nitrous oxide and other volatile organic compounds. High efficiency blower motors produce greater airflow -- at less cost -- to remove contaminants and circulate clean purified air into the firehouse.

Other AirHAWK units are available for turnout gear rooms and living quarters. AirHAWK’s nationwide sales and service team guarantees your satisfaction.

Diesel exhaust emissions spread toxic gases and soot particles throughout a firehouse anytime a diesel-fueled engine is operated. Ultrafine particulate can penetrate deep into the lungs and is absorbed through the skin, carrying toxins into the bloodstream. Exposure to this type of pollution greatly increases a firefighter’s risk for cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

The World Health Organization classifies diesel exhaust as “a known carcinogen.” Numerous studies conducted over the years have come to the same conclusion. Medical studies point to higher rates for several cancers and other debilitating diseases among firefighters than the general public.

Get the Best Protection

Of the different types of exhaust removal and filtration, only one captures and removes 100% of harmful gases and particulate from your firehouse—that is a “source capture system that connects directly to the motor vehicle exhaust system.” (As defined by the International Mechanical Code.) The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recognize the health risks of diesel exhaust fumes and advocate removal to no less than 100 percent effective capture.

One of the most important innovations in exhaust removal design was developed by MagneGrip Group. Its patented nozzle uses rare-earth magnet assemblies to support the nozzle’s tailpipe connection. This unique design provides an airtight seal, while also allowing ambient air to enter and cool the exhaust discharge.

Get the Right System

Today, MagneGrip systems are the first choice of U.S. fire departments—as proven in thousands of installations nationwide.

MagneGrip has more exhaust removal solutions than any other company. This ensures that you get the right system for the specific needs of your firehouse. And the systems are installed by a nationwide team of skilled service technicians for guaranteed satisfaction.

MagneGrip systems are easy to use. System operation is fully automatic and does not reduce response time. On emergency runs, the nozzle remains attached until it reaches the doorway. Then it automatically releases. The nozzle disconnects smoothly, and a cable gently retracts the hose and nozzle away from the exit.

Get the Newest Technology

MagneGrip continues to innovate and bring new enhancements to its exhaust removal systems:

• Higher Temperature Hose offered as standard equipment. With increased vehicle exhaust temperatures, the lower, stiffer two-foot blue hose section has a temperature tolerance up to 1,000° F.

• Wireless Transmitters automatically start the exhaust fan before the engine starts and prior to the apparatus reentering the facility.

• Exhaust Fans designed solely for exhaust removal. Spark-resistant, curved blades deliver the highest efficiency.

• 90-degree Lifting Elbow stabilizes the hose and eliminates hose pinch, twisting and sliding, unlike old-style rubber saddles that restrict airflow.

• Support Cable inside the hose bears the nozzle’s weight to eliminate hose stretching. It also ensures easy release of the nozzle.

• Handle on the Lower Hose makes connecting the system quick and easy from a standing position.

• Inline Particulate Filter in the system’s ductwork captures exhaust particulates before exhausting the fumes outside.

Made in America

MagneGrip Exhaust Removal Systems are completely (100 percent) manufactured in the United States. Competitive systems are often the products of foreign companies and are manufactured outside the U.S. MagneGrip uses American Standard parts (not metric). If adjustments or repairs are needed, most departments already have the tools on hand.
