Tactical Hood For Head Protection and Respiration


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Avon Protection
: 14 December, 2010  (New Product)
Avon Protection has released a new tactical hood with mask and respiratory system incorporated
An enhancement of Avon Protectionís next generation of mask and respiratory defence systems is now available with the new Avon Tactical Hood. This provides emergency forces undertaking high risk operations, complete head and neck protection when combined with Avonís 50 series of masks or FM12 and S10 respirators.

Although not designed for CBRN protection, this highly durable hood is manufactured from Nomex and Kevlar to offer excellent thermal flash resistance as well as cut and puncture resistance. It provides task forces entering a potential danger zone, complete physical protection to the exposed head, neck and ears against material threats such as glass and flash fragments that could be encountered during a tactical operation.

And because it is designed to be used with the new generation of Avon 50 series masks, the Avon Tactical Hood offers an exceptionally high degree of environmental protection for emergency and high risk operations. These could include those undertaken by specialist law enforcement or counter terrorism units within confined environments or where a forced entry is required.

According to John Penton, Avon Protectionís Market Development Manager, ďThe Avon Tactical Hood has been designed and manufactured to compliment our new generation of masks and respirators and to provide complete physical and respiratory defence against chemical, gas or thermal radiation. It is also very quick and easy to don at short notice and comes as a single size fitting to provide a comfortable fit and interface for helmets, masks and other over head mounted equipment.Ē
