Sheds, Precision Engineered Metal Sheds & Garden Storage Products

Newgate Air Systems Ltd are happy to report the arrival of SM Garden Sheds to the partner pages of our website.

SM Garden Sheds is one of the UK’s leading online retailers of garden storage products. With over 30 years in the business, SM Garden Sheds are the experts in sourcing, stocking and selling all manner of sheds, garages and storage containers as well as an excellent choice of garden seating, arbours, gazebos and garden accessories.

In fact choice is the key to SM Garden Sheds success. They don’t just sell sheds. They sell traditional timber sheds in every size, style and design. They have sturdy metal garden sheds with integrated security features, and they have an excellent range of heavy duty plastic sheds that are strong, versatile and virtually maintenance free.

The same choice extends to their garages  with timber, metal and heavy duty plastic garages suitable for every home. Or why not go for a carport. SM Garden Sheds have free standing single and double carports along with lean-to carports in modern materials, designed to handle the worst of the British weather.

A popular option at the moment is the Canberra low pent roof metal utility shed. Constructed to the same high specification as it’s larger cousins, this model is only 142cm high making in perfect for smaller gardens where it can be tucked away discretely or positioned below the window line. The Canberra low pent roof shed is commonly found on residential caravan sites. It offers excellent security, plentiful storage space and is small enough to blend into its surroundings.

Fume Extraction & Dust Collection During The Winter

Newgate Air Systems are specialists in the extraction of harmful gases, fumes and dust particles from the working environment. Many industrial and laboratory processes generate toxic fumes and pollutants which must be safely extracted, filtered or collected to comply with health & safety regulations. Fumes and dust can contaminate other areas of manufacturing, damage electrical systems or be highly flammable or explosive.

Newgate Air Systems work throughout the UK and in Europe with clients in all the major manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. We work closely with smaller factories, garages and manufacturers, especially in and around Newcastle and the North East of England.

On our travels we see many dust and fume extraction systems which either fail to meet the H&S requirements or do so at an unnecessarily high cost due to incorrect specification and design. At the extreme end, we occasionally come across smaller manufacturers, especially vehicle repair centres and fabrication plants where the idea of ventilation and fume extraction is to open a window,

In some instances, open door vehicle inspection bays may allow for adequate ventilation during the summer months. During the winter, when temperatures drop, these doors and windows are often closed to keep the warmth in, along with harmful exhaust gases and welding fumes.

All fumes, gases and pollutants can be disastrous to health. The symptoms of breathing in diesel fumes include eye, nose, throat and lung irritation. There can be feelings of dizziness, drowsiness, high blood pressure, nausea and headache. Other symptoms are kidney damage and reduced ability of blood clotting. With other solvents and gases the signs to look out for include burns around the mouth and nostrils, a hoarse voice, wheezing, drooling, noisy breathing, confusion or disorientation.
