Immediate Compact Protection

The Avon NH15™ Oil & Gas Compact Escape Hood Respirator is the smallest and most compact escape hood on the market featuring H2S and SO2 protection. Its slim profile, quick donning and superior H2S & SO2 filtering performance has made it the leading mask for HSE professionals worldwide.  

The NH15™ Oil & Gas Hood has a five- year shelf life and provides a high level of respiratory, eye and face protection for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Made of clear material, the NH15™ Oil & Gas Hood not only features superior H2S & SO2 protection, but also protects the face from liquid agent splashes.  

The clear material gives a non-threatening appearance, aids with recognition of the wearer and also allows for superior visual communication. Twin low-profile filters on a unique hinge system feature the latest filtration media which reduces breathing resistance and a front reflector makes it easier to identify colleagues in low light environments.
