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.

Asbestos Screening

Duro Dyne employees exposed to asbestos

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. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred through Duro Dyne are:

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.

Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated


Asbestos’s ability to resist very high temperatures made it a go-to material in numerous industries. Workers who have handled insulation or maintenance are at a higher risk of developing asbestos-related lung diseases. Their families are also at risk as secondary exposure was a quite common occurrence up until 1980. Workers would often come home with asbestos fibers on their clothes which would contaminate the home environment.

If you have been affected by secondary exposure to asbestos, you need to take action. Our team is prepared to help you, offering expertise and experience gained in over 25 years of working with asbestos cases. Contact us and we will help you file a claim in order to get compensated.
