The latest revolution from Optrel’s Industrial Protection line is here. Safety has never felt so comfortable. Swiss Air is a TH3 PAPR that does not require a helmet/shield.
NO HELMET Required PAPR
The core element of the Optrel Swiss Air PAPR system is a ventilated half-mask that completely covers the mouth and nose area and supplies them with purified air.
A breathing space is created in the mouth and nose area which, thanks to positive pressure, supports the user in breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance. The half-mask, made of high-tech FR fabric, is designed in such a way that it can be excellently adapted to the individual thanks to a freely adjustable headband. This concept will eliminate the time for time-consuming and expensive fit tests that are common with conventional half-masks.
How does it work?
The clean air comes via a Y-hose from a miniature blower system, which is comfortably carried by a backpack-style unit on the back. In this way, the user is permanently in a “positive pressure air system”, which permanently protects their respiratory tract against contaminated air.
The Optrel Swiss Air is independent of a welding helmet making it one of the most versatile PAPR systems available! From the Central Control Panel, you always have all functions under control. It sits conveniently on your left chest strap allowing you to control the following:
-Overview of filter contamination and battery charge status
-Stepless air-flow control and on/off switch
-Altitude and temperature compensation
Perfect Breathing Air
Fresh ex-works –– Always enough fresh air, less fatigue. Thanks to breath-supporting technology and the ultra-flat and lightweight backpack principle. The Filtration Unit is well under 2″ thick.
Infinitely adjustable headband – for all sizes from XS from XL.
Y-hose with adjustable neck strap and flexible hose elements – this guides the air directly into the half-mask.
Shoulder Harness – Offers ergonomically perfect weight distribution of the super-light filter system (only 550 grams!)
Powerful TH3 Filter Unit – Ultra-flat design. Lightweight and comfortable to carry, highly efficient in use.
Blower Unit w/ automatic air-flow calibration – 14 hour high-performance battery for an uninterrupted working day.
Filtration Layers Breakdown:
The outer most spark-protection grille made of metal holds back hot and flaming particles.
The pre-filter will filter out larger particles from the breathing air.
The master filter of the very highest TH3 filter class – Filters 99.8% of all pollutants from the air.
The ventilated half mask made of FR material will cover your nose and mouth. A positive pressure supports breathing and will avoid fatigue.
*No trespassing for aerosols, smoke, particles or viruses.
-TH3 certified particulate-master filter
-Adjustable air flow 100-130 l/min
-14 hour power battery
-Automatic altitude and temperature compensation
-No mask-fit test required
SWISS AIR Value
Health – Permanent protection of the respiratory tract and lungs against pollutants in the air, regardless of the current activity in the working day. This prevents the development of respiratory and lung diseases.
Ergonomics – Reduction of pain in the neck and back due to a significant reduction in the weight of head, face and eye protection systems. Heavy combo helmets are no longer necessary.
Performance – Increase the performance of users thats to the positive pressure system, which supports breathing and does not cause breathing resistance.
Cost Savings – Lowering investment costs due to eliminating costly fit tests. Reduction of running costs due to massive saving of paper masks as well as their disposal.
Security of Supply – Thanks to a reusable half-mask system, supply is guaranteed at all times, even in the event of a shortage in times of crisis.
Independence – Swiss Air can be used completely self-sufficient, which allows for maximum versatility in combination with the appropriate manufacturer-independent occupational health and safety.
Universal Applications – Swiss air is as versatile in application as the tasks in industry, trade, construction, medicine or agriculture.
Sustainability – By planting a tree for each Swiss Air system sold, Optrel compensates more than just the climate footprint of the respective system.
Fields of Application:
-Building / Construction
-Heavy Metal Industry
-Industrial Cleaning Industry
