HS-5 Hot Shield® Respirator Housing and Face Protector Mask for the Drager Xplore 3500
Hot Shield® Model HS-5 is an extremely heat & flame resistant respirator housing designed specifically for the Drager Xplore 3500 Half Face Respirator. The HS-5 has been designed by firefighters for wildland firefighting, but has found application in other industries utilizing this particular model respirator.
The HS-5 patented design provides for several benefits. Its primary benefit is a high degree of thermal protection to face & neck areas. This is accomplished by use of highly thermally resistant materials and adequate air-spacing, both of which are crucial to meet the goal of protecting the human skin.
Hot Shield USA uses CarbonX® materials from Tex Tech Industries. CarbonX is a proprietary material tested to withstand extreme temperatures, far exceeding the Radiant Protective Performance requirements of NFPA 1977 Standards for Wildland PPE.
The combination of the HS-5 housing with the Drager Xplore 3500 provides an individual with both high thermal protection and the benefits of half face respiratory protection. Also, since the HS-5 does not interfere with the sealing surfaces nor block the inhalation or exhalation valves of the Drager Xplore 3500, “fit testing” is possible.
The interior materials also absorb perspiration, adding to overall user comfort. The HS-5 protects the user and the respirator.
