Wearer comfort is a key feature of the latest half mask from Scott Safety, the designer and manufacturer of respirators and personal protective equipment.
The AVIVA half mask, which is silicone-free but designed with silicone-like comfort, offers a reflex seal which allows the wearer added movement and flexibility, and a positive fit check button is built into the device which is said to guarantee a secure fit of the half mask.
The half mask’s low-profile head harness is said to offer greater stability and compatibility with safety helmets and eye protection.
Enhanced voice intelligibility enables the wearer to be clearly heard by those around ensuring clear lines of communication. The AVIVA half mask is available for use with a wide range of filters permitting use of the device in a variety of applications and industrial situations including asbestos removal.
Last year, around 33,000 workers suffered breathing or lung problems thought to be caused or made worse by their working environments. One of the industry’s biggest issues is badly fitted, uncomfortable equipment, discouraging workers to use their kit correctly. Scott Safety is helping to eradicate this problem with the introduction of this easy-to-use mask that provides complete respiratory protection, low breathing resistance and increased comfort and fit.
The AVIVA half mask is available in small, medium and large sizes and a variety of packaging types including Readypak options for specific applications, some of which have the advantage of permitting the user to regularly store the half mask, keeping it clean and correctly formed for optimum fit.
