Ideal For

No-Fit Test Respiratory Protection & Compliance

Great for Beards, New Guys, & Part-Timers

Finding time to shave in the morning shouldn't impact an employee'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 welding fumes. Respirable breathing air is supplied from a clean air source like a compressed air tank, fixed air line, or personal PAPR.

Clean Air On The Go

Select the ergonomically designed, lightweight, battery powered PX4 Air for a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) is worn on the hip that supplies HEPA filtered breathing air without the restriction of attached air lines.

Productivity Boosting Comfort

Air supplied from a clean air source 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 fog-free.

Protection from Airborne Contaminants

The versatile Z-Link respirator helmet provides protection for workers in a wide range of industries. , such as:

  1. Asbestos abatement - with repeat exposure, asbestos fibers can lead to scarring & inflammation, affecting breathing & serious health problems including:
    1. Cancers - mesothelioma and cancers of the lung, larynx, and ovary. Possibly causes cancers of the stomach, pharynx, & colorectum
    2. Asbestosis - shortness of breath, coughing, permanent lung damage
    3. Pleural disorders (changes in membranes surrounding lungs) - pleural plaques, pleural thickening, & pleural effusions.
    4. Erionite related diseases often reported by construction/maintenance workers exposed to some gravels
  2. Foundry
  3. Heavy Engineering
  4. Hexavalent Chromium (Hex chrome) Protection - upgrade with the flip up ADF lens to protect metalworkers & welders/grinding from dangerous fumes
  5. Isocyanates Abatement (Automotive, building insulation, coatings)
  6. Lead exposure abatement
  7. Silica exposure abatement - respirable crystalline silica particles found in many materials causes multiple diseases, including silicosis (which increases susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB)), lung cancer, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), scleroderma, kidney disease.
    1. Sources include crushing, cutting, chipping, drilling, sawing, & grinding  rock, concrete, engineered surfaces & other construction materials. Masonry & concrete work (e.g., building & road construction & repair). Mining/tunneling; demolition work. Cement & asphalt pavement manufacture. Concrete & engineered stone counter top fabrication
