Slim, ergonomic, light as a feather. This is how the swiss air presents itself at first glance. A second glance reveals its technological leadership. The core element of this solution is a ventilated half-mask that completely covers the mouth and nose area and constantly supplies it with purified air (according to TH3 standard). A breathing space is created in the mouth and nose area which, thanks to positive pressure, supports the user in breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance. In this way, the user is in an "overpressure air system" which permanently protects the airways against contaminated air. The half mask, made of high-tech fabric, is designed in such a way that it can be excellently adapted to the individual thanks to a freely adjustable headband. This concept eliminates the need for time-consuming fit tests that are common with conventional half masks. Clean air is supplied through the Y-hose by a miniaturised blower system, which is comfortably carried by the wearing unit on the back. The filter unit is 45mm wide and weighs just 550g - a new record that leads to a significant reduction in neck and back pain. The intelligent control unit completes the system.

Universal application

The swiss air respiratory protection system is as versatile in its application as the tasks in industry, trade, construction, medicine or agriculture. For all activities where pollutant emissions such as smoke, soot particles, fine dusts, nitrogen oxides, ozone or viruses can be inhaled through the nose or mouth, the swiss air is the ideal respiratory protection. This respiratory protection system can be used completely self-sufficiently, allowing maximum versatility in combination with the appropriate manufacturer-independent work protection.

Now available globally at all certified optrel dealers.
