    Health Hazard?

    Are laserjets still a health hazard like they were a few year back? Back then yopu had to ensure that there was a decent airflow to ensure that the tiny particles emitted from the printer were carried away from the lungs. I had heard that headaches/nausea were often suffered as a result of too much inhalation of said particles.

    Now we have offices with 4 of these beasts in them!


    Just asking...out of curiosity.

    All laser printers produce these fumes. Not just laserjets.

    Important to note that having good airflow isn't just important for laser printers, but computers too. Working in an environment with poor airflow will cause a lot of extra, unneeded stress.

    Cartridge Supplier with a difference

    The cost of printing consumables for schools is constantly increasing and unpredictable as far as the budget is concerned. Schools tend to put funds aside to purchase the actual printer , which often is reasonably priced , and then are surprised about the actual running costs. First rule when purchasing hardware is to check the actual cost per page , second rule are(is) there are many remanufactured toners available that will cut the running costs by around 30%. The remanufactured cartridge industry has seen a great deal of growth over the past few years and quality of the products has vastly improved. Thirdly make sure you can deal with the manufacturer directly as this will give the option for additional technical advice reducing the down time of the printer as well as providing you with potentially more money saving information to ensure the correct products are being used.

    Having spent a number of years supplying Wholesalers / Resellers only we have recently started to supply the market directly in order to put our experience to good use.

    We've just had one of our colour photocopiers moved into a little room with no outside ventilation. I had to put my foot down there and insist they got a good extractor fan fitted, as our reprographics person would have probably been quite ill being stuffed in that room with the copier going all the time!
