No-Fit Test Respiratory Protection and Compliance

Great for Beards, New Guys, & Part-Timers

Finding time to shave in the morning shouldn't impact a blaster's long-term health. Forced air respirators surround the operator's head with a helmet or mask & face seal or shoulder shroud, keeping out dangerous blasting dust.

Productivity Boosting Comfort

Respirable breathing air is supplied from a clean air source like a compressed air tank or fixed line and can be cooled by up to 52°F (29°C) or warmed by up to 33°F (18°C) with the C40 Climate Control Device while keeping the visor free of fog.

Protection From Blasting Dust

Blasters work with a wide range of abrasive blasting media, many of which can have long term health effects due to exposure.

  1. Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD) from crushed coal media/residue
  2. Mesothelioma/Asbestos Abatement
  3. Isocyanates Abatement (Automotive, building insulation, coatings)
  4. Lead Dust (abrasive or abraded (eg. lead-based paint))
