90% of structural fire fatalities are caused by smoke inhalation…after only 2 minutes of exposure.

The MSA S-CAP offers anyone a way out.

Most victims of fire are not injured by heat or flames but by smoke and gases, especially carbon monoxide. The S-CAP Fire Escape Hood is a breathing device which filters and processes ambient air to provide at least 15 minutes for an able person to find their way to safety.

  • Oil resistant, multi-purpose P2 filter removes 94% of particulate matter at 95 Ipm (similar to N95). 
  • Converts deadly Carbon Monoxide gas to non-toxic CO2.
  • Hood has a nose cup for a sure seal and an exhalation valve to reduce CO2 concentration.
  • Provides 15 minutes or more time for self rescue.
  • Large, clear protective lens provides a wide field of view for the best possible visibility in dark and smokey environments.
  • High-visibility yellow color increases chances of being seen by rescuers.

  • Q:


    We have some S-cap masks, which we are very satisfied with, but needs attention soon.
    When weighing them, do the number of grams have to be exactly as it says on the film, or is a small deviation accepted?
