Henkel Loctite required additional research and development laboratory facilities which included a number of air controlled fume cupboards.


  • Detailed engineering design
  • Overall project management
  • Preliminary and detailed design
  • Programme Management
  • Site supervision


The project scope included a new 11mx15m laboratory housing, eight new fume cupboards and the addition of five new fume cupboards to existing laboratories.

Malone Group was engaged for design, supply, installation and commissioning of the PVC fan extract air systems including automatic fume cupboard face air velocity control and fresh air bleed control, the laboratory supply air systems including temperature and room pressure control through variable air volume controllers.

The new supply and extract systems were also integrated into the existing BEMS system for temperature management and alarm control.

This project was successfully delivered within the timescale and required close co-ordination with Henkel Loctite laboratory technicians and laboratory furniture suppliers.
