NATO FM12 Standard respirators for use in the Quick Don program
Avon Protection has won the contract to supply its FM12 respirators and CBRNF12CE filters to Remploy as part of the £14.75 million ‘Quick Don’ project.

The contract will involve Avon supplying 12,000 FM12 respirators and 24,000 CBRNF12CE filters to Remploy to be used as part of the ‘Quick Don’ CBRN ensemble – a complete CBRN personal protection equipment (PPE) suit that can be donned in five minutes.

Peter Slabbert, Avon Rubber’s Chief Executive, explains: “We are delighted to be a part of this important project. Our FM12 mask and filters have been tested in the most stringent of CBRN environments. Add this to its ease of integration with other PPE equipment, and you have a CBRN suit that is completely fit for purpose.”

The NATO standard FM12 is probably the most widely used respirator across the world by military and law enforcement organisations. It has both CE and NIOSH CBRN certification, and provides high levels of respiratory protection against both classical chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial materials.
