"When we ask contractors and bricklayers to put together the vacuum and dust guard they'd like to see tested the Dust Director® figures prominently.  And whenever we do the tests the guys operating the grinders like the fact that you can see more with the Dust Director®.  

It might be worthwhile from a business point of view to verify that the Dust Director® is ANSI compliant and advertise accordingly."

Comparison to other Dust Control Guards.

The Dust Director's design is based on simplicity:

  • From installing it on the angle grinder

  • To  adjusting while its on the grinder - adjust or position the Dust Director on the angle grinder to "your way of cutting"

  • To using it . . . to its versatility . . . durability . . .

	And being able to Completely See the Blade and the Cutting Surface.

BAC Logo.The Dust Director® was specifically designed at the request of the Masonry Union (Brick Layers and Allied Craft Workers).

As the years have past, many of those men who where instrumental in not only the design of the Dust Director® but in the cause to reduce silica dust exposure within the work force have move on . . . 

If you would like to discuss the develop and research of the Dust Director®, feel free to call the following BAC officials who have offered their support:

Dust Director vs. Any Other Dust Control Guard

 

Dust Director - Designed, Built and Manufactured in the USA.MADE in the USA - 100% from USA Metals & Manufacturing.

American Ingenuity, American Design - Manufactured and brought to market after working and meeting in the field with Masonry Contractors and Construction Safety Personal like yourselves, to understand what you wanted and needed in a dust control guard.

An American Original - Not Imitated and Copied or Analyzed by Lawyers to Circumvent its Design.   

 

ALUMINUM WEIGHT - NOT PLASTIC.

  • Weighs less than the steel guard that is included with the angle grinder.

  • Clear plastic guard quickly cloud-up with dust, they heat-up, and break very easily.

  • Slim-line Design:  Compact, Lightweight . . . For comfortable handling all day.  Comfort & Productivity:  The Dust Director's complete design is focused on the contractor.  As a safety director once said, "Give the men comfort on the wall, and they'll give me production."

    Adding extra features increases a product's size, bulkiness and weight.  Versus the slim-line, lightweight design features of the Dust Director.

VERSATILE - Installs onto a wide assortment of angle grinders:

  • Installs onto inexpensive angle grinders (6.0 amp) to 13.5 amp variable speed angle grinders, including:

Bosch · Hilti · Hitachi · Makita · Metabo · Milwaukee

  • Installs onto your angle grinder . . . No need to purchase separate or specific angle grinders

INSTALLATION:  "YOUR WAY OF CUTTING"

  • Attach the Dust Director onto the angle grinder at the angle or position that is most comfortable to you.Install and adjust the Dust Director to the angle that you want to cut with . . .

    All other dustless guards are locked into specific cutting / grinding positions, telling you how to cut . . .

    With the Dust Director, you position the Dust Director on the angle grinder to "Your way of Cutting"

Dust Director Features

#1.  Complete Blade Visibility.
The wide open housing enables operators to completely view their work area for better control and accuracy of cut . . . helping to prevent accidentally cutting into adjacent bricks .

Extension Cover "unsnapped" to cut in tight areas and to cut a wall's inside corner.#2.  Cutting a Wall's Inside & Outside Corners.
The Dust Director provides complete 180° blade coverage.  By unsnapping its extension cover you expose another cutting edge on the diamond blade, which is used to cut a wall's inside or to get into tight areas.

 

 

 

 

Cover unsnaps to cut a wall's inside corner ~ Further enhancing productivity "on the wall".Extension Cover "unsnapped" cutting a wall's inside corner.
When approaching a wall's inside corner, turn-off the angle grinder and un-snap the Extension Cover.

You then proceed with the Dust Director to cut into and out-of  the inside corner . . . easily helping to improve productivity on the job.

 

 

 

#3.  Cutting in Tight Areas.
Being able cut with the extension cover un-snapped also enables the Dust Director to cut into tight areas, such as inside fireplaces - while still maintaining effective dust control.

 

 

#4.  Increased Blade Capacity.
Regardless of angle grinder size (4-1/2", 5" or 6"), the Dust Director accepts 6" Blades.
Cutting brick mortar joints - dust free - with complete blade visibility.

Productivity Tip:  Many contractors use 7" - 10" diamond blades to grind horizontal mortar joints.  Although these blades provide faster productivity and longer blade life (compared to 5" blades), they also require larger and heavier tools (7" and 9" angle grinders or 8-1/4" and 10-1/4" circular saws) which increase operator fatigue.

SUGGESTION:  Use a 6" diamond blade in the Dust Director and a small, compact 12 or 13 amp angle grinder.   This Cruise Control Angle Grinder is about the same size and weight as a typical 8 Amp 4-1/2" angle grinder, while having the power to handle a 6" blade.  For additional information and pricing on the Cruise Control Angle Grinder, see Dust Director Pricing (below).

 

- Dust Director Depth-of-Cut Capacities -

Blade Diameter Depth-of-Cut Blade Widths
4" 5/8" The Dust Director accepts
1/2" wide blades
4-1/2" 7/8"
5" 1-1/8"
6" 1-5/8"

 

 

Keep the barrel of the Dust Director close to the work surface for superior dust control.#5.  Grind Recessed Mortar Joints.
Many brick and stone walls have recessed mortar joints (especially stone walls with their irregular and protruding outward shape).  Regardless of the grinder's size, being able to use 5" and 6" blades with the Dust Director enables you to effectively grind all types of recessed mortar joints.

 

#6.  2" Diameter Barrel.

  • The Dust Director's 2" diameter barrel provides a convenient handle for using the tool and worker comfort.
  • The extra wide diameter eliminates or prevents chunks of mortar or concrete from becoming lodged inside both the guard and the barrel.  FACT:  When cutting concrete or masonry, besides the powder dust - chunks of debris are also broken-off.  The 2" wide barrel eliminates any large pieces of solids from becoming lodged inside the guard . . . helping to prevent productivity downtime.

Testimonial 

Dusting of an Entire Room!
The following conversation took place between a plumber and the inventor of the Dust Director:

Plumber:  "I saw your Dust Director being used, inside a building we were remodeling."
Inventor:  "Yes, Harris Masonry just purchased one for the job.  They really like it."

Plumber:  "No, I really like it."
Inventor:  "You?  Why you?  What do you have to do with cutting masonry?"

Plumber:  "You don't understand.  When those guys start cutting concrete or masonry, especially inside a room, everyone has to leave.  We can't work, we can't see anything . . . we have to stop working and it takes hours for that dust to settle.  With your Dust Director all the trades are able to keep working."

Two friends talking on the football field.

Testimonial 

Clean-Up Expense Reduced Dramatically
"Silica dust is attracted to glass windows like magnets - and the dust stays on the windows.  Do you know how much clean-up expense is?  Tens-of-thousands of dollars!

Using the Dust Director, our clean-up expense was reduced by $10,000 . . . minimal."

Owner, Tuck Point Restoration Company, Texas

12" Dust Director Cut-Off Saw.  4-1/4" Depth-of-cut.  Lightweight - Easy to Handle - Complete Blade Visibility - No Dust.1-Motor Vacuums - (3) Models.  The main difference being the 1-Motor Vacuums is the motors - each has a higher wattage for greater suction.

Additionally, the larger the collection tank, the greater or longer operating times before the tank needs to be emptied.  Another way of looking at collection yields is productivity time:  The larger the collection tank, the longer you'll be able to work without having to stop to empty the tank.

DD1000 Vacuum - 10 Gallon.  Expect to collect 30 lbs. of silica dust (dust will accumulate to the tank's inlet port without suction drop) for roughly 3 hours of tucking pointing before the tank will have to be emptied.  How powerful is the DD1000's suction?  It easily handles our 12" Dust Director Saw (above, right).

DD1200 Vacuum - 12 Gallon.  For concrete dust dust extraction, power, filtration and collection yield (holds 40 lbs. of silica dust without suction drop), the DD1200 may well be the best dust control vacuum on the market.

Would you like to increase productivity 33% while dustless grinding?

Is the vacuum collection tank filling too fast?

 

 

Power Stations - Maybe the most important wet/dry vacuum accessory in the industry!

PS-300 Power Station, for use with any 1, 2 or 3-Motor Dust Director VacuumsA Power Station is simply an cylinder or an extension tank that you insert between the collection tank and motor head.  Installed, collection yields, productivity and suction performance all improve 33%!

 

Bottom third of the Motor Heads and the HEPA Cartridge Filter consume 33% space in the collection tanks.After using a Dust Director® Vacuum and seeing for themselves how powerful their suction is maintained, customers often say that the collection tank fills so fast (even as they realize that the dust has completed filled the tank - to its inlet port and without suction drop.)

To collect an additional 33% more dust - in the same filter collection bag - you'll not only increase productivity but you'll reduce filter bag consumption by 33%!

For these improvements, a Power Station (an open cylinder) is simply placed between the collection tank and the motor head.  Installed, the HEPA cartridge filter and 1/3 of the motor head will now be OUT of the tank.

With more room in the collection tank, the filter collection bag not only is able to fill an additional 33% (10 more pounds of silica dust), but with more room for expansion the filter surface area of the filter bag increases to further ensure that suction power and longer operating times are maintained.

Bonus:  With the HEPA cartridge filter operating in its own protected airspace and with more room for the filter bag to fill and expand, airflow improves considerably.  With maintained airflow, the motor(s) operate easier and more efficiently, they do not overheat, and they last considerably longer;  this includes carbon brush wear.

Additional Vacuum Information & Features:

STANDARD COMPONENTS - 

Included with each Dust Director® Vacuum are the following:  Heavy-Duty Polyethylene Collection Tank, 2" Inlet Port with 12' Smooth Bore Interior Hose (improves airflow vs. a ribbed interior hose), 2" ID Smooth Vinyl Hose Cuff (connects to 2" ID dust ports), 1 Years Parts and Labor Warranty on the Motor Head.

AIRFLOW HEPA FILTER SYSTEM -

With AIRFlow HEPA Filtration you can expect to collect volumes of Silica Dust without the filter caking, which causes suction drop. 

AIRFlow HEPA Filtration -

Using the right filter media, the vacuum's powerful suction is maintained without having to use Electronics, Solenoids (an electronic switch), or Electrical Circuit Boards.

"Its not the vacuum, its the filter . . ."
Any vacuum - of any type, quality or price - is worthless without the right filter.

If you like electronics and you want to spend a lot of money on an electronically controlled vacuum cleaner, then a Dust Director® Vacuum is not for you.

But if you want:

  • 100% of the motor(s) power to be dedicated to suction, and not shared with electronics that shake and pulse the filters

  • To be able to simply replace an industrial grade motor, on/off switch, or wire nut - should the vacuum ever not start.  As opposed to removing the cover and seeing a bunch of electronic components and circuit boards . . .

  • To look across a floor and NOT see batches of fine layers of dust (due to suction loss because the electronic "pulse" self-cleaning filter activated itself)

  • Simplicity.  Durability.  Powerful Suction.  And a Filter System that Keeps Up to You ~

Then a Dust Director® Vacuum is for You.

 

The AIRFlow Filter System includes a HEPA Efficiency Pleated Cartridge Filter and your choice to use the Clean Extreme Filter Collection Bags or the Self-Cleaning Flutter Filter.

 

CLEAN EXTREME FILTER COLLECTION BAGS - 3 included per vacuum

With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed you can expect to collect large volumes of silica dust - to the tank's inlet port - without incurring suction drop or without the filter bag tearing or accidentally bursting inside the tank.

Increase Productivity - How many times are you stopping production to clean or maintain the vacuum's filter or having to empty the tank all too often?  With a Clean Extreme Filter Bag installed, suction power stops when dust begins to exit through the tank's inlet port.  Are you grinding concrete for one hour straight and you happen to notice suction drop?  Simply turn off the vacuum and suction power will resume 120% ~ Guaranteed.

Are you grinding dry and now the wall or floor is wet?  Extreme Filter Bags install into wet/dry vacuums with an inlet port - Tanks stay clean, cartridge filters stay clean - even after collecting 140 lbs. of dry concrete dust.No problem ~ Clean Extreme Filter Bags work even better when the surface is damp!

Besides maintaining suction, collecting large volumes, and being able to pickup dry powder, moist debris, sharp objects and HOT MASTICS - all at the same time - when you go to remove the filter bag you'll notice that the inside of the tank is clean, the outside of the bag is clean and your vacuum's cartridge filter is still brand new looking.

Still Using a Standard Wet / Dry Vacuum as a Dust Extractor?

 

Shop Vac - 16 Gallon Tank with 2-1/2" x 6' Hose.

Shop Vac - $94.97

Ridgid Vacuum - with 2-1/2" x 6' Hose.

Ridgid - $99.00

Shop Vac - with 2-1/2" x 6' Hose.

Shop Vac - $116.97

 

 

Extremely Flexible & Lightweight Hose.Compare & Consider . . . Shop Vac and Ridgid Vacuums have their place.  We all have one.  But when your using these types of vacuums for concrete grinding, besides the quality of the motor and their constantly caking filter system, consider how their 2.5" x 6' hose reduces productivity -  -  -  -  -

 

Assortment of Vinyl Hose Cuffs.To compensate, you increase the cost of such a vacuum by making another purchasing for lighter and more flexible hose.  Such a hose is available at ICS Company (along with an assortment of soft vinyl hose cuffs) - see our Vacuum Accessories.

 

With the hose upgrade (not to mention the half-dozen replacement cartridge filters you'll also purchase), the cost of purchasing a Ridgid or Shop Vacuum increases.  And your still left using a vacuum that isn't designed to handle volumes of dry powder.

 

Also Consider . . . OSHA'S new "NO VISIBLE DUST LAW"!

Dust linkage (rear view) from a standard type wet/dry vacuum.Dust linkage, from a standard type wet/dry vacuum.Check Your Vacuum -  Is there a gasket beneath the motor head to seal the tank?  With OSHA’s new "No Visible Dust Law" you will get fined using a vacuum that leaks dust (see pictures, right).

All Dust Director® Vacuums prevent dust exhaust in two ways:

Poured in place urethane gasket, beneath the head of a Dust Director Vacuum.Each Dust Director® Vacuum has a poured-in-place urethane gasket beneath its motor head (picture, left).  The gasket provides three (3) important benefits:

1)  P
revents the extracted powders in the tank from leaking between the tank and motor head.

2) 
Creates an airtight containment seal

3)  The airtight seal also create greater suction ratings (CFM and H2) than other vacuums whose wattage, amperage, CFM and Waterlift may actually exceed that of a Dust Director® Vacuum.

FACT:  Dust Director® Vacuums have suction power that is noticeably greater than Bosch, Hilti and Fein (three brands of vacuums that we and masonry restoration contractors compared.)
