Parat 5500 Escape Hood from Draeger Safety

Airborne toxins present an immediate danger to the health of a workforce. When environments turn toxic, a fast safe escape is crucial. The Draeger Parat 5500 Escape Hood is designed to be easily donned, protecting users from toxic industrial and fire related gases, vapors and particles during escape. The Parat 5500 Full Face Respirator includes the EN CO-P2 filter which is ideal for escape from fires, fire related gases and hydrogen sulfide. The Parat 5500 has faster donning, extended service life and optimized packaging for easy carrying and storage. It is ready for escape in only 3 steps:

  1. Open the case – seal is broken, filter plugs release and canister deploys automatically
  2. Put on the hood – internal head harness and elastic neck strap adjusts the hood to fit automatically
  3. Escape

By replacing the filter after 8 years, you will extend the service life of the Parat 5500 to 16 years in total, which greatly reduces cost of ownership and long term maintenance costs.
