Product of the month - Drager's PAS Micro back-mounted life-saver

COMBINING versatility, ease of use and the latest in breathing apparatus design, Drgers PAS Micro is among the most technologically advanced short duration and emergency escape units available on the market.

Its a back-mounted unit using a similar carrying system configuration as traditional harness designs. The PAS Micro is ergonomically designed to follow the natural contours of the back, increasing wearer comfort and stability during use. The hose and pressure reducer have been integrated into the back plate, reducing the risk of snagging, protecting the pressure reducer and adding to the streamlined shape of the set.

The technology in this set is inherited from Drgers advanced PSS range of breathing apparatus, designed for professional fire fighters. The buckles are designed to be easily located, even when wearing gloves, for quick adjustment. The harness is constructed of an anti-static material inert to chemicals and oil, and impervious to most acids and alkalis. Benefiting from a high resistance to abrasion and heat, this new harness meets the requirements of EN137 heat and flame resistance and is fully machine washable.

Depending on the requirements of the operation, this unit has been fully approved for use in applications requiring either short duration entry units, airline emergency escape breathing apparatus or dual function.
