Airtight Solutions was the obvious choice for designing and installing a vehicle exhaust extraction system over three levels to extract the engine fumes and gases. The ground level would be used for marine and heavy duty engines. Level one would be utilised for cars and small vehicles, and the second level would be used for motorcycles. The systems installed by Airtight Solutions consisted of 65 motorised retractable hose reels, five exhaust fans and two complete dyno exhaust systems. Airtight also installed a pressure transmitter and variable speed drive onto all exhaust fans. This allowed Airtight to set the variable speed drive so the fans would increase and decrease in the amount of extraction required.
