iQ Builds Smart, Tough Power Tools
We started out building tools to solve our own dust problems, but we realized these problems were affecting all contractors, so we started iQ Power Tools.
Today we build smart, tough power tools that eliminate the dust problem. Using iQ contractors can clean-cut materials with virtually no dust.
Experts on Dust
We’ve been studying silica dust for over 15 years.
- iQ President Joel Guth represented the California Masonry Contractors along with Julie Trost of MCAC and Bruce Wick of CAL-PASC to help shape and rewrite the wet and dry cutting Silica Standard with Cal-OSHA.
- We’ve conducted air monitoring studies testing silica exposure levels for different work practices
- We’ve studied the OSHA regulations on silica dust for over a decade.
- We presented at the OSHA public hearings in Washington, D.C. in April 2014
We know dust.
But you don’t need to be an expert on dust to know this: we in the construction industry must work to get dust out of the lungs of our people.
Our goals are 100% dust free concrete and masonry cutting, safer job sites, healthier work practices and a more sustainable construction industry.
Solving the Dust Problem
We build clean-cut concrete and masonry power tools that eliminate dust. And eliminating dust from your job site is smart: it saves time. It saves money. It saves lives.
