softhood series

Fresh Air for Dusty Environments.

 

The optrel respiratory protection softhood is based on the principle of overpressure relative to the environment and prevents contaminated air from entering the respiratory tract. It protects against dust and spray mist during various non-toxic operations and is optimal for use in manufacturing, woodworking, food and pharmaceutical production, mining or agriculture.

The softhood protective hoods from optrel.

 

The optrel softhood is available in both a short and a long version. The short softhood is ideal when the focus is on acoustic perception, while the long version additionally covers the entire neck and shoulder area in case of increased dust exposure.

Perfect in combination

 

Both versions are used with optrel’s respiratory protection systems, depending on the application: the optrel e3000X blower respiratory protection system or the optrel suppliedair compressed air system.

More about optrel respiratory protection

Protection for painting work

 

In addition to particles, organic gases and vapors also emerge during paintwork. Therefore, the painter should use masks with a high protection level and filters for organic gases and vapors. The softhood in combination with the e3000X offers just that: Protection level TH3 and an A1B1E1 gas filter.

In addition to respiratory protection, the optrel softhood also provides head, face and eye protection. With the long softhood version, even the shoulder area is spared from the spray mist.

Under the protective hood, a breathing space is created that helps you breathe thanks to positive pressure and eliminates tiring breathing resistance.

Wood working

 

During wood processing, fine wood dust can enter the sinuses or lungs, irritate the respiratory tract and cause allergies. optrel softhoods not only protect your airways, but also your eyes, as the hoods are worn over the entire head.

Together with the e3000X, the respiratory protection system also filters out elements such as tannic acids, unsaturated aldehydes or molds, which also pose a health risk during wood processing. Thanks to the additionally available A1B1E1 gas filter, secondary substances such as varnishes, stains or paints are simply filtered out.

Agriculture, viticulture and fruit farming

 

The optrel softhood provides protection not only during mixing, but especially during application of pesticides. It protects not only the respiratory tract (with A1B1E1 filter) but also the eyes and face from the spray mist. Its lightweight design makes it comfortable to wear all day.

Suitable respiratory protection is essential, especially when handling pesticides. The softhood protects against hazards that can be caused by disinfectants, solvents and pesticides.

Demolition and building works

 

During demolition and renovation works, substances that are harmful to the respiratory tract may be released. It is not always known which insulation and damping materials have been used. The optrel softhood provides all-around respiratory protection that also protects the eyes and face from the fine dust. In combination with the e3000X, no matter how much dust there is, you will always be supplied with fresh air. The slight positive pressure supports breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance.
