Avon Protection is now offering its approved and certified NH15 escape hood to industries around the world. With US NIOSH and now European approval for CE Marking, the NH15 is the smallest protective hood on the market and not only protects against all airborne threats but also guards the individual from liquid agent splashes; while an ergonomic design gives the user both a non-threatening appearance and full visibility.
The twin filter, single use hood covers the head and neck allowing the user to safely breathe ambient air. It gives critical CBRN respiratory protection within 30 seconds of opening the protective packaging and donning the reflective hood, and provides the wearer with respiratory, vision and facial CBRN protection for a minimum 15 minutes.
The NH15 provides the solution for fast respiratory response protection without the burden of training, maintenance and storage, and has a 5 year shelf life.
According to Justin Hine, Avon Protection’s Global Product Manager, “The NH15 provides portable and effective respiratory protection for personnel where safety risks are a threat, particularly when employee safety could be compromised by an incident. With the newEuropean approval for CE Marking, this compact hood is available to all industries around the world, and can be leased or hired to suit individual requirements’.
