Not all welding fume exhaust systems are alike. Best results are obtained only by combining customisation, compliance with regulations, part variety and quality, starting from the free-standing arms.


WORKY designs and realizes welding fume exhaust systems for all environments where welding is a daily operation and is carried out for several hours at a time. Our welding fume exhaust systems meet various needs: we always offer you the most suitable solution, simple in its practicality, based on the size and characteristics of the work environment, the quantity and configuration of the workstations and the type of work.

The element that varies most frequently is the free-standing arm.


The free-standing arm range

The arm is used to capture fumes as soon as they are released during work. Thanks to the power provided by welding fume exhaust systems, fumes are extracted at the source, preventing their dispersion in the environment and, even worse, inhalation by workers.

The right choice among the various arm versions is an integral part of an efficient exhaust system.

WORKY offers a very wide range of arms: WORKY arms are all free-standing, they are equipped with at least 3 joints and have various lengths (from 3 to 9 metres).

Let’s take a closer look:


Free-standing articulated arm with 150 mm diameter galvanised sheet metal pipes. The arm is available in various lengths (2, 3, 4, 5 metres) with wall-mount bracket.

Equipped with external double pantograph with return springs and adjustment clutches (the completely external support and adjustment mechanism maximises air flow inside the arm). Complete with flap to shutter the exhaust

SBA Kit consisting of a Ø 150 mm SB arm available in various lengths connected to a 1 or 1.5 HP GSA fan

The SBB6, SBB7 and SBB8 kits consist of a 4 m

SB-SM model arm (without wall bracket) connected to 2, 3 or 4-metre SBAN boom extension.

The SBB9 kit consists of a SB-SM model 5 m arm (without wall bracket) connected to a 4 metre SBAN boom extension.

SBBA Kits are made up of an arm with boom extensions of various lengths connected to a 1.5 or 2 HP GSA fan.

Free-standing articulated arm with internal support structure and Ø 160 mm PVC coated and scratch-resistant external flexible tube. The arm is available in 3 and 4 metre versions.

The best features of this arm are the extreme flexibility and the ability to remain self-suspended in a variety of possible positions, thus managing to work even in hard-to-reach places.

SBF160-V SBF160 arm also equipped with a airtight closing damper (the only one of its kind) for total closure of the extraction, when not necessary.
