Avon Protection Shows Revolutionary New Compact NH15 CBRN Escape Hood IDEX NAVDEX 2011.
 
 
Avon Protection is targeting the Middle East market with its recently launched NH15 compact CBRN escape hood at IDEX 2011. This, Avon claims, is the smallest NIOSH certified CBRN Air Purifying Escape Respirator and its low cost makes it ideal for VIP security support, or for police, emergency medical services and fire officers in a CBRN scenario.

The NH15 hood has a five year shelf life and provides a high level of respiratory, eye and face protection for a minimum of fifteen minutes to allow the user to evacuate from a contaminated area. Made of clear material, the NH15 not only protects against all airborne CBRN threats but also protects the face from liquid agent splashes.

The clear material gives a non threatening appearance, aids with recognition and also allows for superior visual communication. Twin low-profile filters on a unique hinge system feature the latest filtration media which reduces breathing resistance and a front reflector makes it easier to identify colleagues in low light environments.

The hood, which has recently been awarded full certification against the NIOSH Air Purifying Escape Respirator (APER) standard, requires minimal training and can be deployed effectively in under 30 seconds, aided by the self adjusting harness. The NH15 comes vacuum sealed in a foil bag and is protected by a durable reinforced pouch small enough to store in a briefcase, glove compartment or drawer.

The single use device can also be carried on a utility belt or be thigh mounted and unlike conventional respirators does not require annual OSHA specified fit testing.
