Protective Gas Mask hood for children
The Respro is a positive-pressure protective hood system designed and developed by Shalon Chemical Industries and the Israel Defense Forces to protect children aged 2 to 8 years, from all known NBC agents. It is specially designed for optimal comfort and safety, assuring extended use with minimal interference in normal activities. The Respro consists of 3 main integral sub-systems – impermeable hood, air supply unit and a comfortable and brightly colored vest acting as an interface between the other two sub-systems. The light and flexible hood incorporates a large optical grade visor and a drinking system for safe, effortless fluid intake in contaminated environments. In addition, the hood assembly includes comfortable and easily adjustable elastic webbings comprising the headharness and neck strap, and a flexible rubber hose for directing the filtered air into the hood. Positive pressure is maintained by a compact and reliable air supply unit, which draws in ambient air delivering it through the filter canister into the hood. The unit consists of a durable polycarbonate housing enclosing a highly efficient miniature blower, four lithium MnO2 batteries, and specially designed filter canister adaptor. * Although these Gas Masks and Filters have never been used, Field Gear & Protection acts as a 3rd party distributor and can not be held responsible for the level of protection these Gas Masks and Filters provide. The Gas Masks and Filters are sold as is.
