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.
The M1 SCBA Twin Pack assembly enables the combination of two compressed air cylinders (each 6.8l) without the need to rely on a standard T-Piece connector. First responders in special missions where ‘more air’ is required will need to rely on a source for extended air.
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.
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.

It is supplied with a pneumatic system that is connected to an existing cylinder. Depending on the application, it can be equipped with the rescue hood RespiHood or a combination of demand valve and full face mask as required.
MSA composite compressed air cylinders meet a wide range of applications, needs, and budgets. Composite cylinders with aluminium liner, over wrapped with carbon and glass fibres, are 50% lighter than the traditional economic steel construction.
MSA steel compressed air cylinders meet a wide range of applications, needs, and budgets. MSA cylinders can be ordered empty or charged and are equipped with cylindrical thread M18 x 1.5.
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.
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.
