An innovative patented system by Rubi, made to improve on-site working conditions

After many months of work and having passed exhaustive tests in third-party labs, RUBI is launching its ZERO DUST range on to the market. These are the first electric tile cutters certified in accordance with the most rigorous health and prevention regulations in the construction industry.

The new tile cutters with the ZERO DUST system drastically reduce airborne dust and water, preventing diseases related to inhaling silica dust.

This type of protection is already mandatory in Northern European countries and it will be enforced in coming years for the rest of Europe and the USA. The TNO, “Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research”, acted as the certification body, and RUBI has worked together with them for several years, eager to improve working conditions for tile fixers around the world.

With this goal in mind, all RUBI DC, DS, DX and DR cutters will include the ZERO DUST dust reduction system as standard. Besides improving working conditions, this innovative solution will reduce water consumption during cutting, which will minimize downtime caused by refilling the water tank. This new and exclusive technical feature on RUBI electric cutters will surely be greatly appreciated by RUBI users and is expected to boost one of RUBI's highly successful ranges.
