3M Versaflo Hoods & Headcovers are approved for use with certain 3M Powered Air Purifying and Supplied Air Respirator (PAPR) Systems. Many wearers of half and full facepiece respirators are taking a second look at powered and supplied air respirators for reasons that go beyond compliance.
3M™ Versaflo™ S-Series Hoods and Headcovers have been designed to provide users with the optimal level of comfort. Easily adjustable suspensions (most models) and soft comfort pads help provide excellent fit, stability and tracking. Comfort suspension hoods and headcovers feature wide faceseals with soft elastic for improved comfort and reduced air flow noise. The premium reusable suspension allows wearers to modify the airflow distribution inside the hood to suit personal comfort needs. All of these improvements combine to help workers stay more comfortable throughout the day.
S-Series hoods and headcovers direct a comfortable stream of air into the headgear. The moving airflow may make hot environments more tolerable while reducing visor fogging. When used with an approved 3M™ Supplied Air Regulator, the compressed air can be made cooler or warmer by up to 50°F (28°C) for additional comfort.
High Performance–APF: 3M has conducted research to document an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 1000 for the S-Series hoods when used as part of a NIOSH-approved powered or supplied air respirator system. An APF of 1000 is the highest level allowed under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Respiratory Protection Standard (29 CFR 1910.134) for this class of respirator. S-Series headcovers have an APF of 25, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and working environments.
Fast Assembly: All S-Series compatible breathing tubes feature the innovative 3M™ Quick Release Swivel (QRS) connection. Simply push the QRS end of the breathing tube into the air inlet of the headgear until it snaps into place. The breathing tube can be quickly removed with only one hand by squeezing the breathing tube clips.
Simple Maintenance: Choose the ready-to-use integrated suspension models for applications where assembly would be too time-consuming or impractical. Or select the premium reusable suspension hoods for quick, highly cost-effective replacement of outer fabrics.
