The work area is fully made of AISI 304 INOX stainless steel. The surface is finished with Scotch-BriteTM. All the joints are made by suitably smoothed and ground arc welds in an environment of inert gases. All the structure is hardened by means of box-type INOX steel sheets. The worktop is equipped with a raised edge in order to prevent the leakage of contaminated liquids.
The hood is closed at the front part by an acrylic glass slide rail which runs between the polizene lateral guides.
The tool rack panel is on the hood front lower wall. This instrument panel is made of 15/10 thick, AISI 304 stainless steel, and is an integral part of the worktop. The remote controls of the fluids (liquid and gaseous) as well as the electrical outlets are on the instrument panel. The supply of these fluids is done by means of taps placed on the hood internal side panels, which are connected to the feed manifold.
