The ICS / Dust Director®
Contractors Supplies, Inc.
Dust Control Division
Construction, Industry, Facility & the Service Contractors since 1983
For over 30 years ICS has provided building contractors and facility

eliminates rounded cuts (half-moons on brick mortar joints), remove
individual bricks, and performs intricate or detailed "artwork"
