Respiratory protection products on show at IDEX

Avon Protection and SecureBio, a specialist CBRN consultancy, came together in 2014 to offer specialist CBRN consultancy and training services together with respiratory protection products.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, formerly COO of SecureBio and with a military background spanning 23 years, moved to Avon as Managing Director CBRN to provide a new total service providing a world class, unparalleled, single point of contact service for all global CBRN requirements.

“I am honoured to join Avon, having worn and trusted Avon Protection respiratory products throughout my career in the British Army and subsequently in Syria and Iraq. Avon’s products are a cut above anything else currently offered on the market, providing ultimate protection, comfort and the flexibility required by users across all markets.” De Bretton-Gordon says.

New PPE kits

Avon will show their new PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) kits at IDEX.  Based around the tried and tested NH15 escape hood, these packs provide equipment for comprehensive personal protection and decontamination. With a  range of options to procure the kits, including options to lease or hire, this new offering from Avon provides an all-inclusive solution.

"Avon is enhancing the NH 15 with a range of  ensembles offering respiratory protection, suits, gloves and personal decontamination solutions and biological and explosives detection.

suits and gloves and personal decontamination equipment – evidence shows that secondary decontamination is the biggest killer post a CBRN event and hence our individual packs cover all eventualities" says De Bretton-Gordon.

Unique Major Event Support Portfolio

Avon will be launching its new and unique support packages for major global events. This Major Event Support Portfolio gives comprehensive CBRN and HAZMAT support for political, cultural, religious and sporting events worldwide. Providing equipment and advice, this turnkey service supplies a range of options to procure Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), including options to lease or hire kit for a defined time period.

"This comprehensive service will give major event organisers a cost effective means of providing comprehensive CBRN & HAZMAT protection for their events,  safeguarding the public and their employees in the current challenging environment of terrorist threats" De Bretton-Gordon remarks.

World class respirators

On display at IDEX will be Avon’s comprehensive range of world class respirators including the FM50, with 3.2 million sold to the US military, the FM53 and ST53 masks, and the world’s most compact NIOSH certified escape hood - the NH15. The new revolutionary HMK150 Helmet Mask Kombination System, specifically designed for CBRN and Riot Control, will also be at the show.

“Avon Protection has a fast expanding global customer base within the military sector”, says Peter Slabbert, Avon’s Chief Executive.  “We understand the importance of protecting personel in volatile situations and the FM50 is a strong match for the threats faced by the UAE Military.  ”

Avon’s Middle East Regional Sales Manager, Steve Windley,  adds "Avon’s comprehensive range of products provide excellent protection for CBRN terrorist attacks. With terrorist threats increasing worldwide, countries around the world are buying our products to ensure the very best protection for their forces.”
