Duro Dyne Corporation

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Duro Dyne was founded in 1952 and is the leading manufacturer of sheet metal accessories and equipment for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning industry. From when the company was founded, until the 80s when laws regulated it, they have used asbestos in their products. As these products were used in buildings, schools, and homes, many individuals may have been exposed to inhaling asbestos fibers.

Former Duro Dyne Employees Need to Pay Close Attention to Their Health

Duro Dyne has used asbestos in their heating and cooling systems, for its durability and heat-resisting qualities. In these systems, fans are usually connected to air ducts that carry the hot or cool air through the walls. In order to limit the noise these fans make, flexible duct connectors are placed between the machinery and the metal ducts. Working with these products that had asbestos as a major component, has put many workers at risk. When small fibers arise as a result of tempering with asbestos’s natural form or with products containing it, they can get trapped in the lungs and lead to the formation of serious diseases.

There isn’t really a safe amount of exposure to asbestos, especially since factories in the 60s, 70s, or 80s didn’t have the proper equipment to prevent dangerous exposure. If you are a former employee of Duro Dyne, you need to regularly check on your health, as asbestos-related diseases can take many years to develop and show signs. Our team of medical specialists is prepared to give you a screening free of charge, based on your latest chest x-rays. Contact us for further information.

Former Employees Diagnosed with an Asbestos-Related Lung Disease, Can Claim Compensation

When cutting asbestos sheet metal, workers can inhale asbestos fibers from debris. Occupations such as construction workers or maintenance workers responsible for heating and cooling systems were heavily exposed. Since 1988, Duro Dyne has faced thousands of lawsuits over their use of asbestos, to a point where they had to file for bankruptcy. Because of the overwhelming number of plaintiffs, they have tried to establish a trust fund for their victims but haven’t been able to move forward with it yet.
