The MAX FLEXAIR source extraction
arm offers a
patent-pending counterbalance arm. 


Application Data

Unlike conventional arms that suffer from a common illness known as gravity, causing most arms to droop, the MAX FLEXAIR with counterbalance ensures that it can be moved from position to position with minimal effort and guaranteed positive placement!

Extension booms of 5 or 10 feet in length are available in 6 or 8-inch diameter and lengths of 7, 11 and 15 feet to accommodate most applications.

MAX FLEXAIR arms are complete with a mounting bracket for wall or column, flex hose and fully adjustable pick-up hood.

  • Effective for the capture of smoke, dust and other contaninants

  • Extension booms, light kits and remote stop/start as options
