Scott Health & Safety has launched its SureSeal System, a facepiece seal available today for users of respiratory protection products, according to the company.
The Scott SureSeal system includes features such as an enhanced sealing surface and practical personal protective equipment (PPE) interfaces. It's integrated with the Scott AV-3000 facepiece, so users experience an expansive field of vision and exceptional voice intelligibility, according to Scott.
"With this new design, we have taken our industry-leading Scott AV-3000 facepiece to the next level in comfort and fit," said Marty Lorkowski, Scott's global industrial marketing manager. "We did it by taking the best from our current facepiece and combining it with a completely redesigned seal technology to develop our most innovative facepiece yet."
The SureSeal System utilizes a U-shaped seal that maintains a continuous circumferential seal around the user's face. This patent-pending Scott-developed design is called reverse reflex and allows the SureSeal system to flex with every movement of the facepiece, resulting in a more comfortable seal for the user. Additionally, a fifth strap improves sealing capabilities by adding another point of connection to the smaller Kevlar head harness. The tightening buckles are thoughtfully placed so they won't torque the seal and cause leaks if over-tightened.
A primary feature of the SureSeal system includes a deeper, lower-profile seal that offers a more robust interface with protective suits, hoods, shrouds and helmets. Additionally, a smaller Kevlar head harness eliminates bunching and discomfort under helmets and hard hats.
The fifth strap is strategically positioned so that it won't interfere with the head suspension of protective helmets. For proper and quick donning, a reflective positioning tab is located on the back of the head harness.
