You can also avoid CO poisoning by:

• Replacing damaged or failed hoses immediately
• Always use a tailpipe adapter and a high-quality ventilation system
• Provide an exhaust hose for each individual service bay
• Use garage exhaust hoses even if door and windows are opened
• Regularly inspect exhaust removal systems / Check powered exhaust systems daily

Garage exhaust hoses are one of the most important aspects of an exhaust removal system.

The most common exhaust hose is a crushproof hose specifically designed to provide a ground-based, out the door solution for repair facilities. Crushproof is ideal for almost any rear, low-mount exhaust pipes, however, there are also overhead and underfloor systems that may better meet the demands of your specific application.

Before selecting a solution, consider these system design factors.


Overhead - An overhead connector is used to hook up garage exhaust hoses to a ventilation system.


Based on your application you may need to utilize a telescoping system, straight splice, or elbow connector. When implementing an overhead system keep these factors in mind:

  • Galvanized ducting
  • Telescoping setup
  • Ducting T or drop
  • Fan
  • Hose, elbow & pulley
  • Fan exhaust about the building

  • Semi truck with garage exhaust system attached.

    WARNING: Vehicle Exhaust is extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. We always recommend that any system be properly engineered to meet the specifications of your application. If you are using our Crushproof system, we recommend that you use it with a fan and as an intermittent repair solution only, not to be run for long periods of time. This hose is to be used only with naturally aspirated 4 cycle engines running at an idle and under no load. We recommend keeping any run of hose as short as possible preferably 11' or under and sized to include ambient air to cool the exhaust temperatures. This hose is designed to handle frequent temperatures up to 400° and intermittent temperatures to 600°. When using Crushproof hose for the first time, watch closely to verify that the exhaust is exiting the building as designed. IF YOU SEE ANY EXHAUST COMING BACK INTO THE SPACE, THE HOSE IS NOT BEING USED PROPERLY. TURN THE VEHICLE OFF IMMEDIATELY AND CALL OUR EXPERTS.
