Which are the important characteristics of a good fume cupboard?

The fume cupboard (FC) or fumehood protect users from getting into contact with potentially dangerous chemicals and should discharge them outside the building. These cabinets ensure that exposure to hazardous, toxic or flammable vapours and gases is monitored at all times. When there is exposure, these cabinets will remove it. In this way, you can work safely in the laboratory. These devices can be custom made. It is laboratory furniture that has been specially designed so that it can be built into any type of laboratory.

How to identify a proper fume cupboard?

The first identification of a proper fume cupboard is the availability of a valid certificate.
