Riot control respiratory system receives DEKRA certifications

Avon Protection recently received DEKRA Gmbh certifications for the HM50 CBRN respirator and the HMK150 Helmet Mask Kombination System. 

Introduced by European-based Avon Protection and Schuberth, the two products are used for respiratory protection during riot control. They allow for the quicker connection of the full-face respirator to the helmet without requiring the helmet to be removed

Features of the equipment also include new visor technology, air flow management, a lightweight and slim profile allowing for extended operational durations and left or right filter canister mounting options minimizing shoulder mounted device interference.

 “Following extensive research and development, and the certification awards by DEKRA Gmbh, Avon and Schuberth are now able to place absolute confidence in this advanced helmet mask respiratory protection solution for riot control," John Penton, the sales director for Europe and Asia Pacific, said. "This product will enable enhanced protection levels in hazardous environments to standards never seen before.”

The new helmet system was introduced to the European market earlier this year and has garnered the interest of law enforcement teams across Europe.
