The Dräger X-plore® 1300 sets new standards on comfort levels for particulate respirators. The result: an extremely comfortable, pre-formed dust mask for protection against particles. Its efficient CoolSAFE filter material and ergonomic design make the Dräger X-plore® 1300 a disposable dust mask with superior comfort, safety and user acceptance.

The Dräger X-plore® 1700 sets new standards for comfort and use, performance and protection, along with modern design. With its CoolSAFE filter material, it offers effective protection against particles. A hydrophobic material layer prevents moisture from exhaled air from seeping into the mask, keeping the filter media dry. This means breathing resistance remains consistently low, allowing the user to work easily and without tiring during extended use.

When environments turn toxic, a fast, safe escape is crucial. Dräger PARAT Escape Hoods are designed to be easily donned, protecting users from toxic industrial and fire-related gases, vapors, and particles during escape.

The PARAT escape hood is easily deployed in an emergency. When the case is opened, the filter plug automatically releases and the filter moves into operational position so the escape hood can be immediately donned. The self-adjusting internal head harness requires no additional tightening.
