About Us


Established in 1989 Envirogard hires specialist equipment to contractors across mainland U.K.

Equipment is supplied from our hire depots at Manchester, Barnsley, Tamworth and Ashford (Kent).

Our company is a full member of the Contractors Plant Association, and an associate member of the Environmental Industries Commission.

Our hire equipment is regularly employed by contractors engaged specifically in environmental clean-up and pollution control but much is also used by contractors who only occasionally encounter hazardous materials in the course of their work.  

We routinely supply our equipment to telecomms. engineers, electricians, roofing, shot-blasting and painting contractors, geotechnical engineers, HVAC engineers, logistics operations, facilities services businesses, chemical plants  . . . etc.

Our hire products help people meet their health, safety, and environmental obligations.

Hire products broadly fall into the following classes:

Decontamination Facilities:

Help contractors comply with their obligations to protect site employees and the public during work with potentially hazardous materials.

Envirogard offers an extensive range of:

> safety drench showers

> modular decontamination units

> trailer decontamination units

Safety Drench Showers

Are mobile units for emergency decontamination of personnel and can be located just about anywhere.

Hire units provide an overhead full-body drenching shower and are additionally equipped with an eyewash station. 

Safety drench showers serve as a preliminary decontamination facility at point-of-spill of a hazardous material.

Modular Decontamination Shower Units 

Are often the only option where space constraint limits the use of cabins or trailed decontamination facilities.

Quickly erected from lightweight panels, modular systems are for indoor use.

An electrically powered water-management system provides hot water showers, collects, filters & pumps away the waste water.

Decontamination trailers have three compartments providing separate Dirty, Shower and Clean areas. 

Equipped with certified HEPA grade air-filtration to aid containment of hazardous materials. 



A range of sizes is available from the Micro single shower trailer catering for just 4 people, to Maxi Quad shower units for 16 people. 

Self-contained decontamination trailers with integral clean-water tanks and onboard generators and can operate autonomously where sites lack mains power and water.

Optional items available for all models of decon trailer are boot-wash stations and waste-water filtration system - depending upon customer application.

All Envirogard's trailers are intended for tow to site using a van or car.

Water Based Dust & Odour Suppression:

Water mists are a straightforward solution for suppression of dusts generated in construction, demolition and recycling.

Envirogard operates a fleet of water-mist cannons and jetmisters for suppression of fugitive dust.

Envirogard's Multimister and Dustguard trailer-mounted engine-driven jetmisters with integral water tanks are mobile, flexible, autonomous jetmisters with multi-role capability.

Where mains water and 110v power is available our "roll-up, plug-in, switch on" Dustfighter mist cannons offers simplicity in operation at a highly competitive price.

We provide units for indoor and outdoor use, static units, portable units, mobile trailed bowser units, and multi-role units with integral jetwash, aerial misting and road spraying capability.

Dust Filtration Airscrubbers:

Where water mists can't be used Envirogard have dust filtration systems offering a wide range of filtration options.

For control of fine or hazardous dusts Envirogard stocks specialist airscrubbing units - including Negative Pressure Units [NPU's].  

These machines are equipped with HEPA (High Efficiency Particle Arrestor) filters which remove very small particles - typically less than 1 micron - with better then 99.99% efficiency.

For coarse nuisance dusts we stock extract units which can be fitted witn a fabric sock or pleated pocket filters for capture of dust.

These work well for suppression of general "nuisance dust" such as concrete, cement, brick-dust, sawdust, powders, shot-blasting overspill etc. 

These are cost-effective in removing visible airborne dust and are straightforward to use; filters can easily be changed by the user.

All our dust filtration equipment will operate from a 110v supply, is "Wheel-in, Plug-in, Switch-on" and can easily be scaled up or down in capacity to meet individual requirements.

Ventilation Blower And Extractor Fans:

For air ventilation and extraction applications Envirogard stocks portable and transportable fans (blower units).  

Our centrifugal fans (shown rights) can deliver high levels of suction and maintain airflow over long ducting lengths - flexible ducting is available to hire or buy.

Where long runs of ducting are required fan units can be used in series along the ducting to maintain airflow performance.

Specialist Industrial Vacuum Cleaning Equipment:

Where dust has settled high efficiency vacuum cleaners allow collection with minimal disturbance and maximum effectiveness.

The final stage of CRQ and HML vacuums includes a HEPA filter module and each machine is individually tested and certified for its filtration efficiency. 

Envirogard also stocks wet pick-up vacuums.  All machines are available in 110v.

For hazardous dusts (such as asbestos) H-type vacuums are available on request.

These machines are individually tested and certified.
