Keeping your clean air or containment system operating at optimal levels is crucial to the wider function of your laboratory, whether that's ensuring diagnostics are delivered to keep patients safe or critical research is not compromised.

Our directly employed teams of expert engineers cover the whole of the UK to offer rapid response where urgent repairs or replacements are needed, and for planned preventative servicing to maintain containment standards. We take a 'right first time' approach to keep downtime to an absolute minimum, holding large stocks of spare parts and consumables.

Annual service and maintenance packages are available for Envair Technology products, as well as equipment from other suppliers, helping you avoid duplication of maintenance costs. Our service engineers receive regular training on all major national and international clean air standards, as well as briefings on the latest developments in design and technology.
