RTC WaleTale Dust Containment Device
Greatly Reduces Dust! – when mixing mortars, thin-sets, and grout in standard buckets!
"No Pail should be without the Tale"
Simply put, the WaleTale Dust Containment System can save your life as well as those your co-workers'! Crystalline Silica is the basic component of soil, sand, granite, stone, and many other minerals (see OSHA's PDF Factsheet). When thinking of mortars, thinsets, and grouts, you can rest assured that without protection, you're exposed to hazardous dust.
For those of us that don't pay much attention to the labeling, it's hard to believe that a simple bag of mortar doesn't have a larger hazard warning label pointing out the hazards and the potential for Silicosis.
Even if you heed the warnings and wear your own safety mask and take proper precautions, are your co-workers? When using the WaleTale everyone's safe, and there's no need to nag others into compliance.
Let's face it, being safe requires more time and more work. Typically, to be safe you need to pour and mix your mortar in a location far away from where our work is and then lug the bucket back into the work area.
Since finding customers can be very competitive, you're considering all the reasonable short-cuts you can take to trim your labor time to be competitive. Unfortunately, some of your competitors may unwittingly compromise their own safety so they can be among the lower bids. The Wale Tale Dust Containment System is your "compromisation" solution! There's no need to rationalize or even think about taking safety short-cuts anymore, the WaleTale allows you to safely mix your bucket where the work is without the fear of contaminating your work area with hazardous dust.
Although it may look like a whale tail, it functions more like a life-saver. If you're job requires mixing stuff in buckets, don't even think about leaving home without the WaleTale!
