How does a hazardous material workstation work?

If you carry out work at a hazardous material workstation in a laboratory or institute, you benefit from special protection and maximum safety thanks to the special design. Because any harmful and toxic substances do not enter the respiratory tract thanks to the very well thought-out combination of supply and exhaust air. For example, the Workplace Ordinance, the Hazardous Substances Ordinance and current laboratory guidelines stipulate that hazardous gases and vapors must be fully captured and removed at the point of origin.

With the help of high air velocities, toxic or hazardous substances that are generated or already present are thrown directly against the so-called baffle wall and transferred to the rear segment of the hazardous substance workstation. Intake devices are located there , through which the vapors are transferred to the exhaust air system. Among other things, we offer chemical hazards and health hazards workstations with built-in air monitoring as standard and with additional functions to protect workers. Further workbenches such as a laminar flow box and safety workstations can also be found in our online catalog. We would be happy to advise you individually and in detail.

Workstation for hazardous substances: Equipment

Toxic substances, irritating substances and liquids and dusts with corrosive properties pose a considerable risk to human health and the environment. Depending on the areas in which you and your employees primarily work, hazardous substance workstations should be suitably equipped to prevent physical hazards and health hazards like skin rashes etc.. From exhaust air monitoring to the specific properties of base frames and work surfaces - has thought of everything. With our professional help, it's easy to find a workplace with the right equipment to meet your needs and comply with the prescribed workplace limits.

Exhaust air monitoring

Every hazardous substance workplace must be connected to an adequate on-site exhaust air system. Additional built-in ventilation monitoring systems raise safety standards even further. For example, the air volume in the supply and exhaust air ducts is successively monitored by pressure measurement. Whether acoustic or visual signaling - we will be happy to advise you individually and in detail.

Transparent side windows

The details are often of crucial relevance when it comes to the safety factor in your institute or laboratory. By using transparent side panels, you benefit from more brightness and the corresponding lighting elements, which are arranged glare-free, also offer optimum light incidence - for a perfect view during your work.

Base cabinets and racks

With an additional underbench cabinet, you have the option of storing hazardous substances that are regularly used close to your workplace. The storage of flammable liquids is also regulated in accordance with the law in this way . Contact our team directly for more information.

The nature of the work surface

The material from which the worktop is made plays a key role in the quality of a hazardous materials workstation. Depending on your requirements, we offer melamine resin-coated materials that are not only resistant to solvents, but also impress with their easy-care, robust properties. The high thermal resistance also speaks for itself.

Design variants

At, you will find numerous hazardous substance workstations in different design variants. We show you the most common variants here:

Different materials

If you primarily work with aggressive substances or have to deal with irritating substances in your day-to-day work, you should opt for hazardous substance workstations made of particularly robust materials - for example, plastic-coated sheet steel, highly resistant anodized aluminium profiles or a model with a special resin-coated surface. We will be happy to advise you in detail.

With included weighing workstation

Save time and increase efficiency when handling all kinds of substances. A hazardous substance workstation with a built-in weighing workstation enables direct weighing without having to go to another workstation in the laboratory

With underbench cabinet

An underbench cabinet not only offers more stability overall, but also additional storage space. Keep hazardous substances within easy reach - and at the same time safe and legally compliant - at your workplace. This also increases the efficiency of your laboratory.

Tips for selecting and planning a hazardous substance workstation

At, we offer the right hazardous substance workstation for every work area. It is important that the hazardous substance workstation (GAP) fully corresponds to the individual conditions in your laboratory or institute. Only then is maximum safety guaranteed right from the start. We have prepared a checklist for you to help you select and plan a hazardous substance workplace:

  1. Who works at the GAP in each case, or how many people? The more people, the larger the workplace may need to be.

  2. How large is the volume of air that is to be fed into the exhaust air shaft?

  3. At what pressure should the exhaust air be discharged to the outside?

  4. What chemicals are used in your laboratory or company? The material properties should be designed accordingly.

  5. Do you need lighting elements? If so, what type? Tip: Make sure you order glare-free lights so that you can work without disruption.

  6. Are additional substances stored at the GAP? Are these hazardous substances that need to be specially secured?

  7. Do the employees tend to work sitting down or mainly standing up? Consider whether a height-adjustable workstation might make sense.

  8. How many sockets are needed? We recommend ordering hinged models to prevent dust from entering.

  9. Is it necessary to implement a side safety screen to better protect colleagues working in the immediate vicinity?

  10. In which area should the GAP be placed - in the middle of the room, in front of a wall or in the corner?
