Ductless Containment Hoods for Mail Handling Safety

Nobody wants to ever be in a situation where they are exposed to a potentially toxic or hazardous powder or biological agent while opening mail.

Sentry Air Systems Ductless Containment Hoods are a smart choice for handling potentially contaminated mail more safely.

Our Containment Hoods are equipped with a powerful fan and filtration system that helps to protect the mail handler’s respiratory zone from harmful airborne pathogens that might be contained within envelopes or packages that are being opened within the hood.

These enclosed hoods are designed to pull dangerous particulate up and into the unit’s filtration system, which is composed of a pre-filter and high-quality HEPA filter that is up to 99.97% efficient on particles .3 microns and larger.

After the air stream has been scrubbed, the HEPA-filtered air is distributed back into the room. There is an optional outlet plenum if the operator would rather duct air outside.

This system has features including a light fixture for interior illumination as well as a Magnehelic Gauge that monitors the filtration system to ensure the HEPA filter and pre-filter are not saturated.

Sentry Air’s air purification units are proudly manufactured in the United States and include a two-year warranty covering parts and labor.

Ductless Containment Hoods are available in widths of 24”, 30”, 40”, 50” and customized sizes.

If a potentially dangerous substance is found; mail handlers should follow the CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommendations for handling anthrax and other biological agent threats: http://www2a.cdc.gov/HAN/ArchiveSys/ViewMsgV.asp?AlertNum=00029
