The G1 Facepiece was designed without electronic components, to minimize weight, reduce your stress and fatigue and improve your overall performance level. This design also means that there are no electronic components on the outside of the facepiece that may result in snag and entanglement hazards. What’s more, by eliminating costly electronic components, the price is reduced substantially, allowing personal-issue facepieces to be a cost effective measure. As an added bonus, the facepiece is equipped with cross-contamination prevention to reduce the spread of illness when facepieces are shared. But MSA didn’t stop there. The MSA G1 SCBA is also equipped with a speaking diaphragm to increase speech clarity while off air. The new G1 Facepiece is not only lightweight and compact with overall low profile design, it’s comfortable and built to last. Taking the preferred design features of the Ultra Elite Facepiece, including wide field of view and comfortable, robust seal geometry, we’ve taken the MSA G1 SCBA to the next level with an open port to provide low breathing resistance, both on and off air. The G1 Facepiece can help you to conserve energy for when you need it most.
This stand-alone personal alert safety systems detects the cessation of bodily movement and activates an automatic alarm. For enhanced safety the alarm can be activated manually also. It is extremely simple to use. The sensitive, electronic motion sensor recognises all normal body Movements. Maintenance-free and durable - the motionSCOUT guarantees a great cost-performance-ratio. The operating time is extremely high being >200 hours, same as the alarm time of 10 hours continuous sound.
Nightfighter™ Heads-Up Display System
Clearly and easily see air cylinder content when wearing an MSA Ultra Elite Facepiece. This display system includes a transmitter assembly that securely mounts to the SCBA shoulder gauge pressure hose. Sends a digitally encoded signal to the facepiece-mounted receiver.

The PremAire Combination, a Combination Supplied Airline Respirator with compressed air cylinder, is designed to be versatile, comfortable, and affordable. A streamlined design offers a ﬁrst stage pressure reducer and cylinder valve within one assembly, creating a very small size and proﬁle that is less likely to snag when working in conﬁned space or tight places. The PremAire Combination can be equipped with either the 3S-PS-MaXX or the Ultra Elite-PS-MaXX full face mask in combination with the AutoMaXX-AS lung-governed demand valve.
PremAire Escape is a positive pressure short duration compressed air emergency escape breathing device (EN 402) that provides the user with respiratory protection while escaping from toxic atmospheres. The components of the respirator withstand high levels of potential industrial gas leaks and harsh chemical environments. With its intuitive donning procedure that takes less than 5 seconds, the PremAire Escape enables the wearer to escape without difficulty from a potentially hazardous environment. It offers an air supply of 10-15 minutes duration. The standard PremAire Escape is equipped with a 3S full face mask. For potential high concentration industrial gas leaks, like deadly H2S, the device is available with the PremAire Mask-Hood.
Preset: AirMaXX and eXXtreme
For high-frequency and extended SCBA wear, maximum user comfort translates directly into increased performance and good health. The AirMaXX SCBA preset combines premium ergonomic features with advanced technology to provide the best experience in SCBA wearability available today. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes. This works in conjunction with the premium S-swing shoulder pads and swivelling hip belt to distribute weight evenly while increasing freedom of movement. Stress and fatigue are reduced as you perform your job without restrictions. The AirMaXX stays with you even when you are turned upside down. The alpha SingleLine pneumatic system integrates warning signal, second connection and gauge in an easily accessible manifold at your shoulder. The optional alpha Personal Network offers further electronic and telemetric monitoring and communication capability. If you are using your SCBA frequently, for long periods at a time or require absolute concentration in your work, the AirMaXX is the system of choice. The continuous exposure to flames and heat from recurring hard training takes an especially hard toll on equipment. The eXXtreme preset utilizes special materials to reduce maintenance and cost of ownership of critical components that would otherwise require frequent replacement in such extreme applications. The harness is made from extra heavy duty and non-flammable aramid fibres. The air line is protected from fire and heat by insulating tunnels on the shoulder pads. With the rapid cylinder exchange coupling alphaCLICK, the cylinder is simply snapped onto the pressure reducer. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
