Respiratory Masks & Escape Hoods Explained

A respirator is a safety device to protect you from inhaling dangerous substances such as dust or particulates, and gas and vapours, or any combination of these. Safety mask respirators come in a wide range of types and sizes used by anyone who is coming into contact with these hazardous substances. Safety mask respirators range from cheap single-use, disposable masks to reusable devices with replaceable cartridges and filters.

Workers should use respirators to protect their health and control occupational diseases caused by airborne hazards. Respiratory protection provides workers with clean uncontaminated air to safely breathe in.

Half Masks - filter gases and particulates out of the air as you breathe. When the user inhales, air is pulled through the filter. This respirator includes a half facepiece mask and a filter. Straps secure the facepiece to the head. 

Escape Hoods - (breathing escape hoods) are designed to be used only in an emergency, and only to escape from a dangerous area to a safe area. There are several escape respirators on the market. Many of them use a hood with a neck seal instead of a facepiece. They are typically designed for single use for up to 15 minutes.
