RZ Mask for Fire Fighters
“The most refined product that we have used during our overhaul process on fire scenes” -Proudly worn by Ladder Crew #1 at Martin’s Ferry Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio.
The RZ Mask features a replaceable filter mounted inside a comfortable neoprene exterior. The filter features two technologies that combine to provide the most effective filtration in the harsh conditions found at fire sites.
The outer layer is a fine mesh that has been laboratory tested to capture up to 99.9% of all particles sizes .1 micron in size or larger. By comparison, tobacco smoke particles measure about .3 microns in size.
The second layer of the filter is impregnated with activated carbon that attracts other carbon-based chemicals. The activated carbon is extremely porous, featuring as much as 2,000 square meters per gram. Airborne impurities chemically bond to the activated carbon, thus cleaning the air you breathe.
Also mounted to the neoprene shell are dual one-way exhaust valves that minimize moisture, thus assuring an adjustable and comfortable fit that can be worn for extended periods of time.
Working in concert to eliminate contaminants from the air, the mask is ideal for activities like overhauling and fighting brush fires.
Currently used by fire departments around the country and internationally, RZ Mask is proud to provide comfortable, effective personal breathing protection in the Fire Fighting world.
* Please note: The RZ Mask is not flame resistant. We do not recommend utilizing the mask in a setting where the user will be coming in contact with fire. The RZ Mask is solely designed for dust and light smoke protection.
