Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
The industrial version of one of our most trusted products in the Fire Service industry, the G1 Industrial SCBA contains many unique design features that reduce stress and fatigue while improving performance and ease of maintenance. The new G1 iRC (industrial remote cylinder connection) version is a SCBA platform that features a remote cylinder connection, available with both threaded and quick connect attachments. It allows for cylinder compatibility among other MSA SCBA such as the G1 NFPA, Airhawk 2 and Firehawk M7.
The G1 SCBA offers integrated and enhanced solutions to exceed your needs today as well as years into the future. MSA's long-standing commitment to the fire service industry began nearly 100 years ago. Our goal is to provide dependable, high-quality products, instruments and service that will help to ensure a safe return home. MSA’s extensive knowledge and expertise has helped to harness new technologies to produce exceptional protective equipment.
The MSA G1 NO PASS SCBA is yet another testament to the user focus that MSA brings to the fire service. Incorporating the latest in firefighter safety and technology. There are times on the scene where sudden movements or loud noises might not be a good thing, HAZMAT and law enforcement for example. To meet the needs of these first responders MSA has developed the MSA G1 SCBA NO PASS.
This air mask provides uniquely versatile protection, transforming quickly from a CBRN self-contained breathing apparatus to either an air-purifying respirator (APR) or a powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR). Easily goes from first response and rescue to scene management and remediation. This mask features a one-way inhalation check valve, wide-view lens with Kevlar SpeeD-ON® head harness and high-performance mechanical diaphragm. As the first and only of its kind, it provides emergency responders with the maximum level of protection in CBRN environments.
Lightweight, durable and economical, this SCBA keeps contaminants at bay. Ideal for a variety of industrial-hazard applications. Choose from a variety of options for each of the system's six major components including: face piece, carrier and harness assembly; cylinder; first-stage regulator; mask-mounted regulator; and end-of-service time indicator.
This high-quality SCBA provides comfortable, outstanding respiratory protection. Ruggedly reliable and flexible, it's a popular choice for a wide range of maintenance or rescue operations, including firefighting. Designed to reduce stress and fatigue. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes. Based on decades of experience, we also offer two SCBA presets: AirMaXX & eXXtreme – configured systems for the most common applications. 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. 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. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
This advanced air mask features seven life-safety design components. It is the highest quality SCBA available and is virtually bulletproof against fire ground hazard. Although lightweight and easy to use, it's a stellar performer—even in the face of extreme temperatures (up to 500°F).
Through NFPA, firefighters strive to improve the durability and performance of their SCBA and PASS devices. It's no different with the new 2013 edition of NFPA 1981 and 1982 NFPA standards for self-contained breathing apparatus and personal alert safety systems (PASS). These revisions call for a minimum low pressure alarm set point of 33% cylinder operating pressure remaining, improved facepiece lens radiant heat performance, 500° F heat and flame exposure, and standardized PASS device alarm sound patterns. In addition, NFPA has raised the bar on voice communication capability, now requiring measurable, minimum Sound Transmission Index (STI) scores for both mechanical and electronic communications. MSA's new FireHawk M7XT Air Mask represents a true technological achievement in critical firefighter protection. As firefighters determined the safety requirements required to meet NFPA 1981 and 1982 2013-edition standards, MSA engineering teams began to design solutions. The new FireHawk M7XT Air Mask, with its life-safety design components built upon a modular air mask platform, exceeds NFPA 2013 requirements and provides firefighters with the highest quality SCBA available.
