Exceptionally innovative and intuitive: When opening the packaging, the filter plug is automatically released from the filter. The filter is then deployed into operational position and the hood can be immediately donned. Thanks to the self-adjusting internal head harness, no additional tightening is required. All you have to do is: open the packaging, remove and don the hood – and leave the danger zone.
The high-performance combination filter reliably protects against a wide range of toxic industrial gases, vapours and particles. The ABEK P3 filter is approved according to the DIN 58647-7 for filtering escape devices; additionally, the filter is tested in accordance with the EN 14387:2004 for gas and combined filter (s). Particularly convenient: The security seal on the packaging shows if the unit has been opened. In addition, the filter is tightly sealed with two filter plugs.
Replacing the filter after 8 years will extend the service life of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hood to 16 years in total. For this, Dräger offers filter replacement service or an expert training for your employees.
Both, ergonomics and wearing comfort were considered when designing the packaging of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hoods. The escape hood can be carried with a belt, shoulder strap, grip clip or belt clip. The PARAT Hard Case can also be mounted on the wall using a wallholder. Additionally, the robust packaging of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hoods protects the device from damage.
You can select between two packaging types: The Hard Case provides splash water protection (IP54) – the Soft Pack provides dust protection (IP5). Both packaging types have a viewing window to check the filter expiration date and the condition of the device. There is an additional version of the PARAT 7500: A hood which has an elastomeric neck seal – for an even higher level of protection.
