Does anyone have any experience of these silent box fans to use as an extractor fan for a laser?

No, but they mention Torin fan, google search and resulting company offers a lot of centrifugal fans that kind of look like what is inside that box. And their specs don't match gekko at all. Most have 500m3/hr max. Interesting idea for MDF boxing and sound insulation is probably inside also. Centrifugal fan of decent quality is not that loud anyway. If I were going that rout, I'd find and build my own box. I Do like his lasered logo :)

Yup, had two of them, impossible to clean and clog very quickly due to dusts sticking to the inside of the box mdf

I'm curious about moisture-resistant MDF.

Contains high formaldehyde concentrations, also cuts on a laser with an aweful edge (black and sooty)
