Dust Control Setups?


I figured this would be the best place to post my question...

Regarding a small commercial job. There will be some concrete cutting that needs to take place, and I'm looking for my best options in setting up a dust control system with negative air pressure.

The work will take place in a small medical facility.

Why not cut it wet and suck up the mess with the shop vac.

It's required to be contained. It's night-work in a day-operating facility.

Well, I normally do that as well.. but the project is requiring we provide a dust curtain and negative air pressure machine. I've never had to set up a dust control system, and not for a medical facility/clinic. So I am just getting ideas on how to proceed.

Well there are the Zip Wall poles and the BuildClean Hepa filter and you would be logging. http://buildclean.com/

We run two Buildcleans. One recirculating and one on negative air. Plastic walls around with the area made as small as possible.

Hilti DCH 300, dust deputy Bosch dust extractor. just be careful on entry and exit of the cut, seems to spit out a little extra.

I'll look for photos or a vid.

What is your process like for wall/floor/ceiling setup?

Poles and plastic for walls, you can put a plastic ceiling up if needed. Floors get ram board, carpet shield, drops, whatever is needed.

What are you cutting? Walls, floor? How thick?

Cutting 4" concrete slab. They're moving some rooms and freezers around. Two separate areas, about 16'x32' each, in different phases of the project.
