ST53™

The ST53 combines Avon Protection's FM53 mask technology with a modular breathing apparatus to provide positive pressure SCBA and/or PAPR capability for specialist operations. A switch between negative (filter) and positive (SCBA) pressure is achieved at the flick of a lever on the front of the mask. And by attaching a short or long duration compressed air cylinder, it is possible to enter a location on filter mode, assess the situation and change to SCBA mode if the need arises.
