Chemical Mask - Smoke

chemical escape mask

A personal respiratory protective device with visor, hood and built-in filter for escape from fire. Protects against smoke and CO (Carbon Monoxide) inhalation. Complies with European Standard EN-403.


  • Easy to use. Dons within seconds. No adjustment straps.
  • One size fits all.
  • Strong, fire-resistant, elastic rubber hood, protects the entire head and seals comfortably at the neck.
  • Large visor, made of flame retardant transparent film, allows a wide field of view.
  • Unique breathing device (patent pending), enables rapid exhalation and improves the physiological conditions for the user, limiting build-up of heat or vapor inside the mask.
  • A filtration unit containing low pressure electrostatic particle filter, impregnated charcoal cloth layers to absorb toxic gases and catalyst for Carbon Monoxide Oxidation.




Breathing Device: A device combining two valves for exhalation and inhalation + a soft mouthpiece, all in one unit.

Filter assembly: Two canisters containing electrostatic particle filter, layers of impregnated activated charcoal cloth, catalyst and Desiccant
