Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Dust-free renovation saved contamination of valuable recital organ

Bona’s unique Dust Care System (DCS) helped a flooring contractor secure a valuable contract in a highly dust-sensitive environment. The contract involved the sanding and re-sealing of the stage in Manchester’s prestigious Bridgewater Hall, the city’s acclaimed international concert hall.

In its pre-launch tests, the DCS removed 99.996% of dust from the working environment and by connecting an edge sander and belt sander to the DCS unit at the same time, they were able to work very quickly.

The Contracts Director said, “As we worked, the DCS unit drew all the dust away from the machines, the abrasives and the floor . The hall’s Facilities Manager said, “The DCS was brilliant! I expected some dust to be generated but the system outperformed my expectations. It saved having to 'tent' our valuable recital organ which we could not risk being contaminated with dust from the sanding process."
