Honeywell: Mask Mate Hood with Prevent
The hood design requirements in NFPA 1971 date back to the pre-nose-cup and even the pre-positive-pressure era. Air masks of that time were far more oval or circular in shape, and the hood design requirements reflected that. Since then, air masks have continuously evolved and today are anything but oval or circular. Today’s air masks also allow attachments for communication devices and other options. Traditional hood designs can contribute to field-of-view reduction by creating a face opening that often bunches up and is uncomfortably snug around the neck. The Honeywell MaskMate™ Hood improves the air mask-to-hood interface with an opening that adapts to face, neck, and air mask size and shape.
Adaptive Design Face Opening Widest field of view; greatly improved peripheral vision; added size of the face opening allows the hood to be stowed down and around all neck sizes with maximum comfort; effective interface and overlap with edge of air mask lens
Unique Differentiated Construction Easy and faster for Routine and Advanced Inspections; easier to maintain and separate in inventories; easily identifiable when issued and/or in use
Comfort Top Pattern (Patented) Eliminates front to rear seam on peak of head.
