Lab safety shields

Asynt has expanded its range of lab safety shields. Manufactured in the UK, they fit around all major stirrer hotplate brands providing scientists with enhanced safety while maintaining easy access to hotplate controls and good all-round visibility of the reaction or process.

Built in 5mm polycarbonate, the new large shield offers additional user protection for applications such as heated parallel reactions, especially those requiring user intervention when the fume hood sash is open. The device also shields reactions from the cooling effect of fume hood ventilation.

Compactly designed (29.5 x 16 x 17cm) to minimise use of valuable fume hood space, the budget-priced standard shield fits around the stirrer hotplate to provide robust, convenient protection from splashes, aerosols and spills.

All are resistant to a wide range of laboratory solvents and temperatures up to 170°C.

For specialist applications, Asynt can also produce custom shield’s optimised to your experimental set-up.
