Supplied Air Respirators (SCBA)
The M1 SCBA is fully customizable and can be configured to meet a broad range of firefighter needs. Buy per your budget needs and upgrade later – directly in the field. Overall, the M1 breathing apparatus represents the most advanced, ergonomic and modular SCBA system on the market which was designed and developed side-by-side with ﬁreﬁghters. This all-new breathing apparatus platform includes several innovative and customizable features that help to enhance hygiene and improve comfort.
Small in size, yet big on performance, this compressed air breathing apparatus was made for short-duration work in confined spaces. It can also be connected to an airline system, cylinder cascade or stationary air source for even more versatility. Features a maintenance-friendly, first-stage pressure reducer and three carrying modes: hip, back, and shoulder.
The G1 fire service SCBA was designed to integrate all modern SCBA features into a compact and easy-to-operate device. The single power supply drives alarm system and user interface, telemetry radio module, head-up-display (HUD) and voice amplifier. The display provides full benefit without distraction by always displaying exclusive information which are relevant in the given situation. All G1 versions include swivelling and adjustable hip belt, electronic control unit, telemetry module, lung governed demand valve and buddy breather 2nd connection. The G1 full face mask excels in outstanding wearing comfort, low profile and low effort in maintenance. In stand-by, the open port technology offers unrestricted breathing. No electronic components reside on the mask to reduce the overall investment.
For high-frequency and extended SCBA wear, maximum user comfort translates directly into increased performance and good health. The AirMaXX SCBA preset combines premium ergonomic features with advanced technology to provide the best experience in SCBA wearability available today. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes. This works in conjunction with the premium S-swing shoulder pads and swivelling hip belt to distribute weight evenly while increasing freedom of movement. Stress and fatigue are reduced as you perform your job without restrictions. The AirMaXX stays with you even when you are turned upside down. The alpha SingleLine pneumatic system integrates warning signal, second connection and gauge in an easily accessible manifold at your shoulder. The optional alpha Personal Network offers further electronic and telemetric monitoring and communication capability. If you are using your SCBA frequently, for long periods at a time or require absolute concentration in your work, the AirMaXX is the system of choice. The continuous exposure to flames and heat from recurring hard training takes an especially hard toll on equipment. The eXXtreme preset utilizes special materials to reduce maintenance and cost of ownership of critical components that would otherwise require frequent replacement in such extreme applications. The harness is made from extra heavy duty and non-flammable aramid fibres. The air line is protected from fire and heat by insulating tunnels on the shoulder pads. With the rapid cylinder exchange coupling alphaCLICK, the cylinder is simply snapped onto the pressure reducer. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
The MSA M1 Communication Module is a best-in-class voice communication solution which perfectly integrates into the G1 full face mask. Thanks to an exceptional voice transmission, this module allows users to easily communicate when wearing breathing apparatus.
Remote Speaker Microphones (RSM) modules enable connection between MSA headsets and Portable Radios used by Emergency teams : flexible devices for stand-alone use or in connection with a headset (helmet or mask mounted). With a robust and ergonomic design, they are perfectly suited for various types of firefighting and rescue missions. Interfaces are available for a variety of radios.
alphaBELT is a sleek and durable rescue and holding belt, that can be easily integrated into your MSA SCBA. With its multiple functions, the revolutionary alphaBELT eases your everyday work as a first responder. Besides restraining and positioning, it may offer you the last resort – a quickly accessible and safe rescue seat for self-rappelling in an emergency.
The G1 full face mask sets new standards for wearing and breathing comfort. Minimum pressure points can be felt on the face and various size options are available. Integration to Gallet F1XF fire helmet is made easy through helmet mounting bracket options.
Mask-helmet-combinations offer the advantage that your full face mask can be put on and taken off without removing your helmet. Not only do the adjustable rubber straps allow for a more comfortable fit for every head size and shape; better positioning also provides more safety. The full face masks 3S-H don’t require a standard head harness. When attaching the mask to the helmet, the helmet takes the place of the traditional harness and keeps the mask in position.
With more than five million units sold, the upgraded 3S Full-Facepiece Respirator offers safety, comfort and durability. The face blank is made of a softer rubber compound (and also yellow silicone in another option) and has a wide sealing frame and deeper chin stop for a snug, comfortable fit. The lens is made of impact-resistant polycarbonate (and silicate-coated glass and Triplex glass in other options) and offers a wide field of vision for excellent viewing. The harness allows for quick donning and removal and achieves a pressure-free fit in combination with a protective helmet. The inner mask allows for optimal air flow and eliminates lens fogging. The mask comes in more than 50 different versions, allowing users to find the perfect mask.
Designed to quickly charge 300 and/or 200 bar cylinders, MSA high pressure breathing air compressors work seamlessly as part of an air purification system that meets the highest, most stringent standards. Low operating speed for continuous, reliable operation. All moving parts are electronically balanced to run smoothly. A variety of horizontal, vertical portable and mobile models with charging capacity from 100 up till 570 liters per minute (larger models on request) are available. The compressors can be supplied with electric, gasoline or diesel engines. Vertical models from 230 up to 570 are available also with highly efficient noise suppressing cabinet for indoor application. Great variety of options and accessories are available. * Humidity control * Electronic Computer Control * Oil pressure control * Temperature control * Filling panels
The integrated full colour digital display gives clear pressure and alarm indication. For assured safety the luminescent mechanical gauge shows the pressure status even if the battery is empty. The M1 Control Module is available with long-range radio telemetry option for electronic incident monitoring.
The integrated monitoring unit SingleLine SCOUT combines the advantages of MSA’s unique SL hose-in-hose technology with a multi-purpose manifold, motionless sensor and an easy to use personal alert safety system (PASS). While monitoring the complete operation of the user, the SLS ads a new safety layer to the SCBA. All relevant information is easily accessible in the user's chest area. Any MSA AirGo, AirMaXX SCBA or M1 SCBA with SingleLine pneumatics can be easily retrofitted with the SLS.
This stand-alone personal alert safety systems detects the cessation of bodily movement and activates an automatic alarm. For enhanced safety the alarm can be activated manually also. It is extremely simple to use. The sensitive, electronic motion sensor recognises all normal body Movements. Maintenance-free and durable - the motionSCOUT guarantees a great cost-performance-ratio. The operating time is extremely high being >200 hours, same as the alarm time of 10 hours continuous sound.
MSA’s Compressed Airline Breathing Apparatus delivers a ready supply of safe, breathable air wherever air is irrespirable or oxygen deficient. MSA’s corresponding accessories, including compressed air filters and automatic switch valve, ensure air quality and deliverability.
The PremAire Combination, a Combination Supplied Airline Respirator with compressed air cylinder, is designed to be versatile, comfortable, and affordable.
