The fundamental reason of respiratory protection is to minimise the exposure to substances that are dangerous to health when in the workplace. Occupational diseases are caused by breathing contaminated air full of harmful dusts, fumes, gases, mists, smoke or vapours and the goal of respiratory equipment is to defend you and your employees from the detrimental damage they can cause to your respiratory system.

Escape hoods can provide the wearer with short time protection, in conditions where chemicals or smoke is present, by blocking it from your eyes or skin and restricting you from inhaling the damaging particles. By using an escape hood, it filters out these particles protecting you in all circumstances which are why our escape hoods are specifically designed to perform within various types of emergency situations, ensuring maximum respiratory protection.

Escape Hoods

Fire safety is one of the most common emergency escape situations. For fire safety, respiratory protection is vital when carrying out an emergency escape. Poisonous fumes are the most common cause of death in fires (64% in the UK) so we have manufactured our own Smoke Escape Hood, the RSG SE200, with visor and built-in filter that protects against smoke and CO (Carbon Monoxide) inhalation for escape from fire. This hood is for single use only and the filter is designed to protect for 15 minutes, before substantial breakthrough, allowing you and your employees to carry out your emergency escape procedure successfully within the given timeframe.

With safety, a must in all industries, escape hoods are an essential part to all emergency escape procedures involving respiratory hazards. Depending on the risks and hazards involved in the workplace, our emergency escape hoods can offer respiratory protection during escape from an area of a chemical spill, an area of low concentration of chemical or biological agents, as well as from fire related incidents.

For further information on our range of products, don’t hesitate to contact us where we would be delighted to demonstrate our capability on respiratory protection.
