Bosch Speed Clean Dust Extracting Bits For Anchoring in Concrete

Safe & Effective Concrete Drilling

Drilling holes in concrete can be very harmful to your respiratory system because inhaling dust containing silica in some instances may cause silicosis, lung cancer, COPD and other debilitating diseases.  Today contractors are looking to protect their employees but also complete work faster.  Protecting individuals health does not have to mean that work must happen at a slower pace.  The Bosch Speed Clean Bits tackle both tasks of keeping the people using them safe and removing friction from the drilling process allowing for faster drilling.

If you are using an adhesive, such as the Simpson Strong Tie, using this bit will allow you to save more time by not having to clean the dust out of the hole.  The hole is clean after drilling has stopped and the chemical application can happen immediately without any cleaning.  Our YouTube video shows what the holes look like on the inside right after drilling.

Protect Yourself

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final rule to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in Americaʼs workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica.  Inhaling crystalline silica can lead to serious, sometimes fatal illnesses including silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis (in those with silicosis), and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  Silicosis is a disabling, irreversible, and sometimes fatal lung disease. When a worker inhales crystalline silica, the lungs react by developing hard nodules and scarring around the trapped silica particles. If the nodules become too large, breathing becomes difficult and death can result. There is no cure for this disease, but it is 100% preventable.

The Bosch Speed Clean Bits is a product that combines safety with speed and allows contractors to recoup the investment in the tools.  Many of the regulations put in place in the construction industry also create a slower work rate and sometimes make some tasks virtually impossible on a jobsite.  We understand that it is not possible to have a vacuum everywhere you might need to drill, but with new technology, having a cordless vacuum will allow users to go in more places and drill within OSHA regulations without a respirator.

Maximize Performance

Contractors who built concrete buildings, bridges or structures need to look into this system simply to save time and keep employees on the job longer.  Good employees can be hard to find, so keeping them healthy and productive is important to a good business.  Bosch Power Tools has been known as an industry leader in professional tools and these bits are one more product that proves the commitment to peoples health and the productivity on the jobsite.
