New Scott Safety AVIVA Respirator sets benchmark
A new AVIVA range of half-mask respirators is being introduced by Scott Safety to optimise worker respiratory safety across diverse industries and workplace hazards found in Australia and New Zealand.
AVIVA is a global product range, engineered and manufactured in Australia and the UK to meet or exceed global respiratory protection standards and is the next step forward in half-mask respirator technology from Scott Safety, a global leader in the design and manufacture of respirators and personal protective equipment.
The mask features and design are the result of requests from customers for an innovative, extremely comfortable half-mask respirator of exceptional build quality and durability at an affordable price.
“The result is a safety product that workers want to wear – rather than have to wear – because it’s comfortable and easy to fit and breathe through, plus the innovative reflex seal allows you to talk while wearing the mask without compromising the face seal,” says Sanya Kranenburg, Product Manager, Scott Safety.
“To improve durability and ease of cleaning, the mask incorporates an over-moulded endo-skeleton covered in a unique Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) that gives silicone-like comfort without the limitations of silicone. The mask also incorporates a positive fit-check button that reassures wearers of a secure fit every time they don the mask,” says Ms Kranenburg.
“The focus on comfort and innovative features such as the integrated voice panel, reflex seal, soft head cradle and down-facing exhale valve cover means that workers are more likely to comply with safety requirements by wearing the mask throughout their day and keeping it in place, even when talking,” she said
Scott Safety’s wide range of filters and innovative mask design means that AVIVA offers protection against hazards including; particulates, dusts, mists, gases, vapours, bacteria and viruses across industries including; automotive and transport spray-painting, asbestos removal and construction dusts including silica, bulk handling and process engineering, agricultural and horticultural sprays and dusts, food and beverage processing, manufacturing and chemicals, metalworking and welding, mining and extractive industries, oil and gas processing, infrastructure and port processing facilities, water and waste water facilities and maintenance.
AVIVA comes in small, medium and large sizes and has been designed using the latest biometric data panels, to fit a high percentage of different face sizes and shapes globally, while also adjusting for facial expressions.
