A supplied air respirator provides higher levels of respiratory protection from contaminants than a disposable respirator or an air purifying respirator. These flexible supplied air respirator systems pump clean breathing air provided by the surrounding work environment through positive pressure to the respirator mask. An air pump efficiently sucks the air from a clean breathing area and pushes it through an air hose to the workers respirator in a hazardous area.
Use a supplied air respirator when your working environment contains dangerous chemicals that cannot be blocked out using chemical respirator cartridges. Call our technical team if you are unsure of the contaminants in your environment and we can talk you through the respirator selection process.
Two different supplied air respirator systems are available: low pressure and high pressure respirator systems. Respirator Helmets, hoods, full facepieces and half-masks are all available for both units.
