Meet IMC Source Capture Ventilation Code for Your Nail Salon!
Need to meet ventilation code for your nail salon? Healthy Air® Nail Salon Source Capture systems have you covered!
For new nail salons, IMC code requires a source capture system capable of exhausting a minimum of 50 CFM per station with exhaust inlets located not more than 12 inches from the point of chemical application.
By capturing contaminants at the source with an adjustable flexible air intake, the Healthy Air® Nail Salon Source Capture system meets or exceeds the IMC requirement for source capture ventilation in the nail salon.
Also, the Healthy Air nail salon source capture systems can be attached to duct transition, directing the treated air out of the salon.
By treating this outgoing air, Healthy Air source capture systems prevent nail dust from accumulating in ductwork that could result in fire hazards and stop contaminated air from re-entering the salon and/or causing problems with neighboring businesses.
Yet another advantage of Healthy Air source capture systems for nail salons is the ability apply the clean air output for each system to the overall 0.6 CFM/ft2 that is required to exhaust from the overall salon air, saving energy and money (IMC 2015 Table 403.3.1.1 for Nail Salons b,h)
