Lapeyre Stair designs and fabricates metal stairs, such as alternating tread stairs, space saving stairs, face forward descents and work platforms. Their innovative technology process of designing and manufacturing these products created the need for a dust collection system that could meet Lapeyre Stair’s workload and quality standards. After the competitor’s collector went up in flames, the customer was left having to rent a costly dust collection system that could not keep up with production demand.

Mike Dahmer of Industrial Air Solutions went in and visited with the staff at Lapeyre Stair. He assessed the customer’s needs and they were set up with a GS12 Farr Gold Series industrial dust collector. This dust collection system was equipped with an explosion vent, sprinkler system and the capabilities of handling 5,000 CFM @ 12” s.p with an air-to-cloth ratio of 1.28:1. The Farr Gold Series has far surpassed the customer’s expectations, from long filter life to quality efficiency. This system will be around for the long haul and will not leave the customer in a cloud of dust or smoke!
