Duraflow (now Versaflo)

Our Versaflo (previously Duraflow) powered air respirators (PAPR) can be worn by those people who have facial hair or beards. Because PAPR are loose-fitting, they don’t require a face-fit test and can be comfortably worn for long periods of time.


    The 3M Versaflo (formerly Duraflow) is the UK’s leading powered air respirator (PAPR) thanks to its durability at an affordable price.

    Moving from Duraflow to Versaflo


    Scott Safety’s Duraflow Powered Air Respirator system was discontinued in March 2021. 3M have recently announced that the Scott Safety Duraflow replacement is the 3M™ Versaflo™. The announcement has been disappointing to us here at a1-cbiss but not a shock as 3M continues to replace Scott Safety branded safety products with 3M branded ones. 

    The good news is for Duraflow customers that wish to continue using their Duraflow respirator. They can continue to do so.

    3M will provide alternative consumable products to extend the lifetime of your Duraflow unit.

    For workers that value comfort and simplicity, the 3M™ Versaflo™ brand provides a versatile system. A system that is comfortable, and easy to use. The Versaflo™ Powered Air Respirator systems have many advantages over the Duraflow Powered Air Respirator system. Versaflo™ systems are approved with a wide range of hoods, face shields and helmets.

    We supply the individual components of the Versaflo (formerly Duraflow) to make it easier for existing users to buy replacement parts. We’ve also created starter kits and bundles for people using the Versaflo for the first time. We have everything you need to use your Versaflo system safely and comfortably.


    The Versaflo PAPR is available in 3 versions:

    TR-300 Series protects against particulates
    TR-600 Series protects against both particulates and gas vapours
    TR-800 Series is ATEX certified for use in potentially explosive environments
