Full Face Gas Mask
The award-winning ESPIRE full face respirator was created for professional varnishers and chemical engineers. The filter is now located at the top of the mask and thereby uncovers the transparent mouth section.
The air flow is now guided in a linear stream from the top of the mask to the outlet valve located at the chin. A divider between viewing and mouth section makes sure the visor‘s viewing area stays free from fog.
With this arrangement the air flow is not only optimized but the aesthetics and the archetype of a respirator are completely changed. The fully transparent front increases communication ability, comfort and acceptance for the user.
