Honeywell Safety Products PPE for working with asbestos

Wednesday, 30 May, 2012 | Supplied by: Honeywell Industrial Safety


Honeywell Safety Products provides a range of safety and personal protective equipment designed to offer safety, quality and performance when working with asbestos.

The Optifit Convertible P3-rated Full Face Powered Air Purifying Respirator is suitable for asbestos removal. The kit includes a full face piece, P3 filter, blower unit (which provides a flow rate of 170 L/min), power cord, battery pack and filter shower cap. Available in three sizes, workers can choose from the 5-point strap or black industrial mesh head net.

The face piece offers visibility and optical clarity with a replaceable, impact-resistant polycarbonate lens that is treated with an antiscratch coating, while the silicone skirt offers durability and comfort and a nose cup that prevents fogging. The moulded-in speaking diaphragm provides improved audio transmission for clear communication.

The P3-rated filter provides a filtering efficiency of greater than 99.95%. The shower cap can be placed over the top of the filter to protect it when putting the mask through a decontamination shower following asbestos exposure. Certified to AS/NZS 1716:2012 Lic SMK 0952, the system meets the ANSI/UL 913 standard for intrinsically safe apparatus for use in Class 1, Division 1, Groups A, B, C and D hazardous locations.

If a person is working around asbestos but not responsible for its removal, the company recommends P1 or P2 disposable respirators. These include the 5110 Cup Shape Dust Respirator P1 Unvalved, 4110 Flatfold Respirator P1 Unvalved, the 5210 Premium Respirator P2 Unvalved and 4210 Flatfold Respirator P2 Unvalved.

With no restriction of vision or communication, the disposable masks enable the user to work safely and efficiently and are designed to fit in combination with eyewear. Low breathing resistance encourages longer wear time by improving the wearer’s comfort, while the humidity-resistant and hypoallergenic filter ensure maximum service life.

The respirators feature durable suspension straps and have a flame-retardant outer shell. Made from quality materials, the masks demonstrate resistance to clogging. They are latex, silicone and PVC free, making them suitable for all workers without the worry of possible allergies, and are certified to AS/NZS 1716:2003 standards.
