EnviroBoot EB-1 dust-suppression accessory The EnviroBoot EB-1 dust-suppression accessory creates a vacuum chamber surrounding the demolition-hammer chisel to draw away dust and other airborne contaminants released during demolition of concrete and masonry surfaces. According to the manufacturer’s initial testing, when used with a HEPA-filtered vacuum unit, the EnviroBoot reduces particulate matter, such as crystalline silica dust, in excess of 80 percent. This capability, says the manufacturer, allows contractors to meet the standard for permissible exposure to crystalline silica set by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
