CHARLOTTE, N.C. - SurfPrep will display portable vacuums, sanding systems and other products at the co-located Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo and Wood Pro Expo Charlotte, March 6-8 in the Charlotte Convention Center.

The company says the foundation of the SurfPrep Sanding System is built on attention to detail as it continues to create new products with the focus of reducing both labor and sanding material costs. 

Among the products on display at the SurfPrep by Dixon Booth #518 will be dual air electric HEPA vacuums, the 3x8 Electric Ray, the 5x6 Trident Air and Electric Ray portable sanders, and the 3x4 Electric Ray as well as foam-, paper-, and film-backed abrasives.

SurfPrep’s dual air, electric HEPA vacuum is engineered to provide maximum protection from hazardous dust by capturing 99.9% of particles .03 microns and larger according to the company. Available with a lifetime warranty, its pre-filters are designed to prolong the life of the HEPA filters.

It features an industrial powder-coated, stainless steel power head; a 15-gallon, poly tank; two air compressor couplers for pneumatic tools; two outlets for electric tools; and a self-closing vacuum port. With many hose options available, the vacuum can also be used with a "Y" adapter to run two sanders from it.
