Parat 5500 Filtering Escape Hood
The Dräger PARAT® 5500 fire escape hood was developed in cooperation with users – always with the focus on offering the fastest possible escape. Optimized operation and wearing comfort, a robust housing and a tested CO P2 filter ensure protection from toxic fire-related gases, vapours and particles for at least 15 minutes while escaping.
Ready for escape in only 3 steps
Exceptionally innovative and intuitive: When opening the packaging, the filter plug is automatically released from the filter. The filter is then deployed into operational position and the hood can be immediately donned. Thanks to the self-adjusting internal head harness, no additional adjustment is required. All you have to do is: open the packaging, remove the and don hood – and leave the danger zone.
The high-performance combination filter reliably protects against a wide range of toxic fire-related gases, vapours and particles. The CO P2 filter is approved according to the EN standard 403:2004. In addition, the filter is tested for use against H2S (at 2500 ppm) in accordance with DIN 58647-7. The filter is securely sealed with two filter plugs keeping it safe over its long lifetime.
16 years of service life
Replacing the filter after 8 years will extend the service life of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hood to 16 years in total. For this, Dräger offers filter replacement service or an expert training for your employees. With the exception of the PARAT 5550 which requires that the complete refill kit be exchanged after 8 years.
Robust and ergonomic
Both ergonomics and wearing comfort were considered when designing the packaging of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hoods. The escape hood can be carried with a belt, shoulder strap, grip clip or belt clip. The PARAT Hard Case can also be mounted on the wall using a wall holder. Additionally, the robust packaging of the Dräger PARAT Escape Hoods protects the device from damage.
Different packaging types
You can select between four different packaging types: The Hard Case provides splash water protection (IP54) – the Soft Pack provides dust protection (IP5). The fire pouch, PARAT 5550, is packed in a flame retardant holster – or select the Single Pack with the standard filter plug system. Both, the Hard Case and the Soft Pack have viewing windows to check the filter expiration date and the condition of the device. Particularly convenient: The security seal on the packaging shows if the unit has been opened.
