Curtin University – Chemistry Building Fume Cupboard Upgrade

We were asked by the University to help resolve ongoing maintenance issues due to poorly designed accessibility to the fume cupboard washers.

We sat down with the architect and came up with this simple idea.

With the request that all fume washer needed to be visible this was our concept.

Rather than moving the ceiling each time to remove the front covers to access the washers, we thought why not incorporate the ceiling within the covers.

We modified all ceilings to meet required measurements and standards and manufactured this acrylic panel pelmet made up with a combination of clear and white glossed acrylic.

At ACW we think outside the box, give us a call and let us help you on your next project.
