Avon Protection’s new modular powered air systems receive NIOSH CBRN approval

Avon Protection has received NIOSH CBRN approval on its AvonAir™ modular powered air range. The Avon EZAir, MP-PAPR and CS-PAPR usher in a new era of multipurpose and adaptable respiratory protection.

The single filter Avon EZAir is the smallest and lightest CBRN powered respirator available with cost of ownership per use at nearly half that of PAPRs. The low profile MP-PAPR provides supreme user comfort through its unique flexible construction and hydration integration capability. The market leading in-mission response flexibility of the CS-PAPR provides the tools necessary to keep pace with rapidly changing threats. These three modular CBRN hardened systems provide the level of protection needed to meet ever-changing mission demands.

An intelligent CBRN blower with its flow control technology and alarm systems is used in all AvonAir systems. The modularity even extends as far as the mask and filters with owners of Avon masks able connect to their new powered air system and meet NIOSH CBRN requirements using the Avon CBRN canister.

The patented design approach delivers maximum operational flexibility – interchangeable performance modules allow for multiple protection level configurations that can be rapidly assembled to accommodate changing threats. With reduced breathing burden and greater integration with legacy equipment, enhanced protection against toxic industrial chemicals, ease of weapon sighting, and integrated communications, the AvonAir™ range enables the wearer to stay comfortable and effective in physically taxing scenarios.

Commenting on the approvals, James Wilcox, Vice President Product & Innovation, said, “After 5 years of development, working alongside the end-user community, Avon has produced the next generation of modular powered CBRN respiratory protection. With their NIOSH CBRN approval, these products now provide the wearer with lighter, modular and fully integrated solutions. In addition the ability for customers to configure systems depending on operational needs dramatically lowers their ownership and maintenance costs.”
