The smarter we become, the more we realize that wood dust and other airborne pollution isn’t very healthy for us to inhale — not to mention the how pissed off the homeowner becomes when there’s a thick layer of sawdust or drywall dust over everything in the house. For your shop you can install permanent air cleaners, but are you going to drag them with you to every job site?
Demo Air Nets look very similar to the bags that inflate when you turn on your dust collector, only they attach to portable fans. Eagle America claims the Air Net captures particles down to 5 microns, but I couldn’t actually verify that fact on the Demo Air Net Website. When you’re finished using the Air Net you can clean it by throwing it in a washing machine on gentle and air drying it.
Demo Air Net manufactures four different size bags: the Small fits 9″ circular fans and has an effective area of 20 cubic feet, the Medium fits 18″ circular fans and covers 3200 cubic feet, the Large fits 24″ circular fans or 20″ square fans and covers a 4800 cubic foot area, and the Monster fits a 42″ circular fan and can cover up to 30,000 cubic feet. Prices for the Demo Air Nets run $40, $100, $190, and $260 for the Small, Medium, Large, and Monster respectively.
