Introducing the NEW Clear Visor with Adflo PAPR!

Article By: Team AWS

It is no secret that the current climate has caused unprecedented demand for respiratory PPE. This includes an overwhelming number of enquiries for Clear Visors with a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR), which in turn has led to a national shortage of stock.

As a result, we have now launched a new Clear Visor with Adflo PAPR to help those in need - from frontline medical professionals to industrial workers and beyond.


Using a PAPR for protection against airborne microbiological hazards

This system (part no. 890607) offers protection from mechanically generated, thermally generated and microbiological particles, and is available with both an 8 hour standard battery and a 12 hour heavy-duty battery (part no. 890607HD).

The PAPR has a required minimum protection factor of 50, is fully compliant with the Australian and New Zealand Respiratory Standard (AS/NZS 1716) and features a particle filter that performs to PAPR-P3 level.

So what does this mean? The filter will capture respiratory contaminants with over 99.95% efficiency and the air you breathe will be at least 50 times cleaner than what you would otherwise breathe unprotected.

To put things in perspective, that’s 5 times the protection afforded by a disposable or reusable respirator. What’s more, a powered air system does not require fit testing and could prove to be the more economical long-term option.

What are the visor’s other features?

Besides elite level respiratory protection, this new system has plenty more to offer:

- Extra-large 170 x 104mm clear visor with outstanding peripheral and downward vision
- Two adjustable air flow settings (170/200 litres per minute)
- Rapid battery charge to 80% capacity in 1 hour
- Airflow climate control within the visor and an optional task light
- Multi-adjustable six-point harness maximises comfort and allows the user to set the distance and angle from their eyes to the clear visor
- Lightweight head-top weighing just 600 grams
