ESPIRE / Full Face Respirator


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

The ESPIRE full face respirator was created for professional varnishers and chemical engineers. The filter is located at the top of the mask and thus does not interfere with the transparent mouth section. The air flow is guided in a linear stream from the top of the mask to the outlet valve located at the chin. A divider between visor and mouth section makes sure the visor's viewing area stays clear. With this arrangement, the air flow is not only optimized, but the aesthetics and the archetype of a respirator are also completely changed. The fully transparent front increases communication abilities, comfort and user acceptance.
Patent pending

Compared to conventional models, this new type of breathing mask offers not just one, but three advantages: first, it provides the user with a large field of vision, second, it doesn’t fog up and third, its filter is replaceable. A simple idea that takes all types of needs into consideration!
