CT Wings - Extra Hand

Available December 1st in the United States and Canada.

Utilizing suction from a CT Dust Extractor, the CT Wings provide an additional support for mounting long items to a wall like molding, or holding a straight-edge or level in place for layout marks. With 16 adjustable "wings", CT Wings adjust and conform to molding and other stock quickly while providing a tacky grip surface to minimize movement. A bypass-valve allows for quick and easy release and reset without going back to the extractor.

Full Unit HEPA = Full Compliance for EPA RRP

Friday, September 30, 2011 | Reader Comments | Dust Extractors | Paint

Festool Full Unit HEPA Certified Dust Extractors

 

Only a Full Unit Certified HEPA dust extractor meets the EPA RRP regulation guidelines, protecting you from expensive fines!

All current Festool CT Dust Extractor models, shipped to dealers as of October 2011, have been independently tested and certified to be FULL UNIT HEPA Dust Extractors. When you purchase a new Festool CT Dust Extractor, regardless of model, you will find a printed certificate in the box as well as labeling on the dust extractor documenting its Full Unit HEPA certification.

If you are a contractor or remodeler working on projects impacted by the EPA's RRP regulations, and your current vacuum only has a HEPA filter, without Full Unit HEPA Certification, then you are at risk of being cited for non-compliance with the updated requirements. Simply put, there's absolutely no substitute for Full Unit HEPA Certification when using your vacuum for EPA RRP.
