Supplied Air Respirators (SCBA)
The G1 SCBA offers integrated and enhanced solutions to exceed your needs today as well as years into the future. MSA's long-standing commitment to the fire service industry began nearly 100 years ago. Our goal is to provide dependable, high-quality products, instruments and service that will help to ensure a safe return home. MSA’s extensive knowledge and expertise has helped to harness new technologies to produce exceptional protective equipment.
This high-quality SCBA provides comfortable, outstanding respiratory protection. Ruggedly reliable and flexible, it's a popular choice for a wide range of maintenance or rescue operations, including firefighting. Designed to reduce stress and fatigue. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes. Based on decades of experience, we also offer two SCBA presets: AirMaXX & eXXtreme – configured systems for the most common applications. For high-frequency and extended SCBA wear, maximum user comfort translates directly into increased performance and good health. The AirMaXX SCBA preset combines premium ergonomic features with advanced technology to provide the best experience in SCBA wearability available today. If you are using your SCBA frequently, for long periods at a time or require absolute concentration in your work, the AirMaXX is the system of choice. The continuous exposure to flames and heat from recurring hard training takes an especially hard toll on equipment. The eXXtreme preset utilizes special materials to reduce maintenance and cost of ownership of critical components that would otherwise require frequent replacement in such extreme applications. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
The MSA AirXpress One is a simplistic, reliable and economical SCBA that meets the EN 137, Type I requirements for the industry and OGP market and a variety of related applications. The AirXpress One is rugged and reliable with customizable configurations depending on your needs. This Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus boasts a new, modern design and the easy-to-maintain construction provides low cost of ownership. The new AX demand valve provides an adjustable flow rate and an optional manual bypass function. Zippers on shoulder harnesses allow for switching of pressure gauge and demand valve from one side to another. All the added features of the AirXpress One are ideal for extreme working conditions (heavy breathing environments) and increased overall user safety.
For high-frequency and extended SCBA wear, maximum user comfort translates directly into increased performance and good health. The AirMaXX SCBA preset combines premium ergonomic features with advanced technology to provide the best experience in SCBA wearability available today. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes. This works in conjunction with the premium S-swing shoulder pads and swivelling hip belt to distribute weight evenly while increasing freedom of movement. Stress and fatigue are reduced as you perform your job without restrictions. The AirMaXX stays with you even when you are turned upside down. The alpha SingleLine pneumatic system integrates warning signal, second connection and gauge in an easily accessible manifold at your shoulder. The optional alpha Personal Network offers further electronic and telemetric monitoring and communication capability. If you are using your SCBA frequently, for long periods at a time or require absolute concentration in your work, the AirMaXX is the system of choice. The continuous exposure to flames and heat from recurring hard training takes an especially hard toll on equipment. The eXXtreme preset utilizes special materials to reduce maintenance and cost of ownership of critical components that would otherwise require frequent replacement in such extreme applications. The harness is made from extra heavy duty and non-flammable aramid fibres. The air line is protected from fire and heat by insulating tunnels on the shoulder pads. With the rapid cylinder exchange coupling alphaCLICK, the cylinder is simply snapped onto the pressure reducer. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
MSA composite compressed air cylinders meet a wide range of applications, needs, and budgets. Composite cylinders with aluminium liner, over wrapped with carbon and glass fibres, are 50% lighter than the traditional economic steel construction.
The G1 full face mask sets new standards for wearing and breathing comfort. Minimum pressure points can be felt on the face and various size options are available. Integration to Gallet F1XF fire helmet is made easy through helmet mounting bracket options. Now available is the C1 Headset for the G1 full face mask. This will allow the user to be able to upgrade their mask to have built-in communications. Visit our literature pages below for more details.
Combining state-of-the-art features with MSA's precision engineering, the Ultra Elite full-face mask is our top model in this range. The ergonomic design makes this a comfortable unit, while the 5-point harness makes it easy to put it on or take it off. The distortion-free coated lens provides a wide field of vision, while the unique airflow prevents lens misting. The face blank has a single-sealing flange and comes in rubber or silicone, while the speech diaphragm makes communication easy to discern. The model has more than 40 different versions, making it the perfect mask for many different applications.
This stand-alone personal alert safety systems detects the cessation of bodily movement and activates an automatic alarm. For enhanced safety the alarm can be activated manually also. It is extremely simple to use. The sensitive, electronic motion sensor recognises all normal body Movements. Maintenance-free and durable - the motionSCOUT guarantees a great cost-performance-ratio. The operating time is extremely high being >200 hours, same as the alarm time of 10 hours continuous sound.
The PremAire Combination, a Combination Supplied Airline Respirator with compressed air cylinder, is designed to be versatile, comfortable, and affordable. A streamlined design offers a ﬁrst stage pressure reducer and cylinder valve within one assembly, creating a very small size and proﬁle that is less likely to snag when working in conﬁned space or tight places. The PremAire Combination can be equipped with either the 3S-PS-MaXX or the Ultra Elite-PS-MaXX full face mask in combination with the AutoMaXX-AS lung-governed demand valve.
This combination supplied-air respirator with SCBA is designed especially for escape. Versatile, comfortable and affordable, it features a single-assembly first-stage regulator and cylinder valve. Small in size and profile, this one is ideal for working in tight places.
MSA’s Compressed Airline Breathing Apparatus delivers a ready supply of safe, breathable air wherever air is irrespirable or oxygen deficient. MSA’s corresponding accessories, including compressed air filters and automatic switch valve, ensure air quality and deliverability.
This compressed-air emergency escape device provides 15 minutes of life-saving respiratory protection in extremely toxic or oxygen-deficient environments. Featuring fast, automatic activation, fluorescent protective carrying bag, and three liters of 200 bar compressed air, this device is ideal for use on ships, off-shore oil rigs, refineries, water utilities and confined spaces.
This chest-worn protective escape device provides oxygen on demand wherever toxic gases, particles or oxygen deficiency can be imminently present. Ready-to-use, it's small in size and low in weight, making it easy to don, use and carry. Features a double heat-exchanger system to reduce inhalation air temperature to a comfortable level. The TR device allows quick and economic training of donning and use by simulating the weight and properties of real units
