Eye and respiratory protection

Draeger has unveiled the X-plore 5500 full face mask, which combines both respiratory and eye protection.

The mask features a two-point bayonet connector, which attaches both filters using a half-turn technique. Draeger says the low-profile position of the filters ensures that the user’s vision is free from obstruction, even when several filters are used in combination.

Draeger also states that the mask provides even weight distribution, unrestricted movement, and features a larger visor, which is said to offer a high level of resistance to chemical, thermal and mechanical hazards.
