Smoke Hood NXP4
The Smoke Hood and the special filter provides protection against combustion gases of plastic, chemical substances, agricultural chemicals, and dangerous fluids. It also captures solid and liquid particles, dust, smokes, smoke-producing substances, radioactive particles, bacteria and rickettsia, fungi, toxins, and viruses. The hood is made of a high visibility material. The visibility is furthermore enhanced by reflective stripes. The seal around the neck is made of a special silicone which gives a very effective seal, but the hood is yet comfortable to wear.
- Extremely low leakage. Test average in breathing zone is 0.06%, where 5% is the limit. In ocular zone it is 0.6%, where 20% is the limit.
- High level filter withstands 10.000 ppm. Hood norm is 1.000 ppm.
- Shelf life 10 years.
Our Escape Hoods come equipped with high-performance filters that protect against a wide range of toxic gases, vapours, smoke, and particles.
Nordic Xtreme’s Escape Hoods can be the difference between life and death in the event of gas leaks or chemical emissions. They are very efficient and easy to put on. No adjustments are required, and there is no need for practice or education. Our escape hoods cover the whole head and protect the face, ears and hair from chemicals and particles. They work with glasses and are a better choice than a full face mask for users with beards.
- Twin exhaust valves ensure low respiratory resistance.
- A large sleeve opening gives excellent visibility.
- Can be used again after inspection and filter change by Nordic Xtreme (NX).
- CE approved as half-mask according to EN140, with additional requirements from EN403 relevant for use as Escape Hood.
CARRYING BAG – EASY TO BRING ALONG
Our Escape Hoods come with a soft carrying bag. The bag is essential as it makes the hood easy to bring when working in demanding environments. The bag is compact and made in a water-resistant, robust, durable material. It has a waterproof zipper for easy opening. There is a pocket for filter date, name, or a safety card in the rear. The bag can be worn on a belt, carried over the shoulder or around the waist. It also has brackets for wall mounting.
Our Escape Hoods exceed the requirements for escape hoods by a significant margin. We use class 2 filters and give the user a higher level of protection or longer action time. See the table below for the stipulated break-through times for filters in concentrations as high as 5.000 ppm. (Hood norm defines only 1.000 ppm). The NX Xtreme Hood has been tested for H2S in higher concentrations on customer request. Break-through time for 10.000 ppm was 58 minutes, and for 20,000 ppm was 24 minutes.
STIPULATED BREAK-THROUGH TIMES FOR FILTERS, ACCORDING TO EN 14387:2002
