Military Respiratory Protection from Avon Protection

The FM12 is one of Avon's legacy masks, and probably the most widely used respirator across the world. Developed for NATO military operations, the FM12 is suited for civilian law enforcement and first responder applications.

Developed using Avon's successful US Military M50/JSGPM platform, the C50 provides maximum operational flexibility to counter multiple threat scenarios. With the appropriate filter, the C50 can protect against a wide range of CBRN threats.

The FM50 is part of the latest generation of Avon CBRN full face mask, suitable for military and specialist applications. The twin filter conformal system sits close against the face, providing high protection and very low breathing resistance. This allows greater ease of weapon deployment.

The FM53 is the only mask of its kind offering versatility, comfort and protection. This technically advanced mask has been specifically developed for specialist operators which require both positive pressure SCBA, CCBA, APR/PAPR and negative pressure capability.

Avon's revolutionary ST53 multi-role Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) system has been developed specifically for specialist applications. This versatile technology allows the user to respond to changing operational conditions without having to leave and change equipment.

The NIOSH approved NH15 is the world's smallest single use escape Respirator. Designed specifically for users in CBRN emergency incidents, the respiratory hood provides the wearer with high level of respiratory, eye and face protection.
