Since 1993, we’ve worked to design and engineer the best, most cost-effective answer to the health threat of diesel exhaust emissions in firehouses and vehicle maintenance facilities. These are some of the things our satisfied customers have said.

"The MagneGrip Silding Flexhose Track (SFT) system is simple to use and there are no loops that take up a lot of space. It is good quality and it operates effectively and efficiently."

- Andrew Bezenah, Assistant Fire Chief, West Bloomfield Twp. (MI) Fire Department

"The biggest benefit of the MagneGrip System is the ease of use. The hose snaps on to the MagneGrip tailpipe adaptor with magnets; the auto sensors turn the blowers on when the apparatus is started to begin exhaust removal. It's quick and easy to use. And for the health of our firefighters, it's reassuring to know we are reducing the risk and worry of diseases caused by diesel exhaust."

- Herbert Williams, Fire Chief, Mount Pleasant (SC) Fire Department

"We are very happy with the performance of the AirHAWK 3000 XL air purification system."

- John E. Cieslik, Fire Chief, Rochester (MI) Fire Department

MagneGrip Exhaust Removal Systems now includes a 1,000°F-rated lower section hose on all exhaust removal systems. In response to higher temperatures generated by current fire apparatus, the new lower hose section is an automatic upgrade from the 400°F constant/500°F intermittent rated hose. All MagneGrip high temperature hoses are comprised of two sections and use a combination of materials designed for rugged durability. The upper section is flexible and attaches to the track system; the lower, stiffer two-foot section connects to the tailpipe nozzle and is designed to prevent bending or kinking. Both standard and higher temperature hoses are designed to fit all fire apparatus tailpipe connections.

MagneGrip offers the easiest to use and most problem-free systems available. They have the lowest maintenance requirements of any system. The patented magnetic nozzle provides an airtight seal and is 100% effective in removing exhaust emissions.

For 11 consecutive years, MagneGrip Group has successfully completed its ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9001:2008 Surveillance Audit. MagneGrip Group manufacturers and installs Exhaust Removal and Air Purification Systems for fire stations and vehicle maintenance facilities.

Since 2007, MagneGrip has been assessed and approved each year in the following areas: design, manufacture, assembly, supply, installation and servicing of air cleaning systems.

QAS International, an independent third-party organization, conducted the audit. ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally recognized standard that sets forth a set of requirements aimed at improving products and achieving customer satisfaction.

MagneGrip has recently installed exhaust removal and air purifications systems in new fire and rescue facilities across the country. As fire chiefs and architects become aware of increased cancer risk due to diesel exhaust and toxins in apparatus bay areas, MagneGrip Group has been specified for new emergency center construction projects.

MagneGrip Exhaust Removal and AirHAWK Air Purification Systems are built into new facilities as well as retrofit into existing structures. In new construction, general exhaust does not provide the level of protection fire chiefs are looking for. As a result, a point-of-source exhaust capture system is a necessity. It eliminates exposure to unhealthy diesel fumes, stops toxins from migrating to other rooms, and keeps the building cleaner. An exhaust removal system also allows indoor engine checks, in accordance with IMC building codes for operating vehicles inside a building. AirHAWK Air Purification Systems keep air clean in turn out rooms.

Some of the recently completed new fire station construction projects with MagneGrip equipment include:

New Philadelphia (OH) Fire Department

Completed in June 2017, MagneGrip worked with Ed McCall, McCall Sharp Architecture, to design a Straight Suction Rail (SSR) system in the bay area and AirHAWK Air Purification System in the turnout room.

Wooster (OH) Safety Center

Architects Richard L. Bowen & Associates Inc. designed the new police and fire facility for drive-through apparatus. The Straight Suction Rail (SSR) system was the fourth installation with the city by MagneGrip Group.

Cardinal Joint Fire District (Canfield, OH)

In Canfield, Ohio MagneGrip Group worked with CJL Engineering on a new fire station. This was the third installation within the fire district; it included Straight Suction Rail (SSR) and Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT). SFT – or “slinky hose” -- is a no loop, expandable, horizontal system that travels all the way to the door.

Orange Village (OH) Fire Department

MagneGrip initially installed an exhaust removal system in the Pinecrest EMS headquarters 10 years ago. A new satellite station is scheduled to open in 2018 based on a design by WHS Engineering incorporating MagneGrip’s Sliding Flexhose Track system.

Concord Township (OH) Fire and EMS

In Delaware County, Mull & Weithman Architects, Inc. designed an emergency services station to replace a facility damaged by a storm. As a way to save money and maximize investment, much of the MagneGrip equipment from the former building was used in the new facility.

Berea (KY) Municipal Fire and Safety Building

Integrity/Architecture incorporated Straight Suction Rail (SSR) into the design for the new building.

In Texas, MagneGrip worked with several architects on new facilities located across the state. Wiginton Hooker Jeffry Architects designed Killeen (TX) Fire Department. Straight Suction Rail (SSR) and Sliding Flexhose Track (SFT) were installed. Parkhill Smith & Cooper designed Midland (TX) Fire Department #6, using MagneGrip’s Straight Suction Rail (SSR) system. McKinney (TX) Fire Department #9 was designed by Conduit Architecture + Design.

MagneGrip’s Straight Suction Rail (SSR) exhaust removal system was used in other noteworthy new construction facilities including Lockport Township (IL) Fire Protection District, FGM Architects; Donalsonville (GA) Fire Department, Donofro Architects; Oklahoma City (OK) Fire Department #21 and #23, Kirkpatrick Architecture Studio, Clemson (SC) Fire & EMS, MESCO Building Solutions; Bristol (TN) Fire Rescue #5, Thompson & Litton (Engineers, Architects, Surveyors).

An exhaust removal is typically installed at the end of an 18-month construction process. Once an exhaust removal system is selected, MagneGrip works with the architect during the building design phase. MagneGrip designs the exhaust removal system, provides CAD drawings, as well as project description and specifications to incorporate into bid documents.

MagneGrip Exhaust Removal Systems and AirHAWK Air Purification Systems remove vehicle exhaust emissions and other contaminants in emergency service facilities to reduce firefighter risk for cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases while keeping spaces clean and tidy.
