About PAPR
Powered air-purifying respirators provide workers with a higher level of protection and comfort. For example, an air-purifying ½ mask has an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 10. When used on a PAPR, the same ½ mask has an APF of 25. An air-purifying full facepiece has an APF of 50, while a PAPR full facepiece has an APF of 1,000

The continuous flow of air eliminates breathing resistance, so there is less worker fatigue, greater productivity. PAPRs with loose fitting facepieces and bibbed hoods eliminate the need to fit test workers.

Ideal for the abatement market; pharmaceutical industry and labs; smelting operations; any hot work environments or jobs requiring heavy exertion. North’s Compact Air PAPR provides the durability and comfort you want in a PAPR, plus the versatility you need to select the right PAPR configuration for your worksite.
