Air-Purifying Respirators (APR)
Our lightweight Chin-Type Gas Masks use a replaceable canister to offer strong protection against particulate matter, vapors and gases. The small canister and comfortable facepiece allow for downward head movement and high ease-of-use. Note: Not meant for fire fighting.
With its industry-leading motor-blower and constantly filtered airflow, the belt-mounted Responder CBRN PAPR is ideal for first responders, military, and special ops personnel who require non-IDLH respiratory protection for up to 8 hours. The unit offers a choice of two MSA gas mask CBRN facepieces and three proprietary cartridges designed for CBRN, particulate and poisonous gases or vapors. The unit's constant airflow helps a user stay physically alert and focused, while also preventing fogging in the facepiece. Batteries can be "hot-swapped," and the blower's EMI shield ensures there is no interference with radio communications.
Combining state-of-the-art features with MSA's precision engineering, the Ultra Elite full-face mask is our top model in this range. The ergonomic design makes this a comfortable unit, while the 5-point harness makes it easy to put it on or take it off. The distortion-free coated lens provides a wide field of vision, while the unique airflow prevents lens misting. The face blank has a single-sealing flange and comes in rubber or silicone, while the speech diaphragm makes communication easy to discern. The model has more than 40 different versions, making it the perfect mask for many different applications.
