Respirex Prps Powered Respirator Protective Suit

The Respirex Powered Respirator Protective Suit (PRPS) is a one piece gas tight chemical protective suit for use by emergency response personnel after a CBRN incident.
  • Manufactured from DuPont™ Tychem® TK, a high performance, lightweight, multi-layer chemical barrier material.
  • Respiratory system comprising a battery powered 3M Jupiter air filter unit fitted with a visual display unit mounted inside the suit at the base of the visor, and audible alarm.
  • Battery pack provides 1 hour operational use, plus 15 minutes for decontamination.
  • Twin JRF-85 gas & particle filters to provide protection against chemical and biological warfare agents.
  • Semi-rigid laminated visor.
  • Heavy duty gas tight zip fitted across the chest enclosed by double external storm flaps with hook and loop fastener.
  • Dual glove system comprising Neoprene outer gloves bonded to inner Silver Shield laminate gloves.
  • Gas tight locking cuff mechanism.
  • Highly chemically resistant Hazmax™ safety boots permanently attached to suit.
  • Supplied with lightweight disposable Hazbag to quarantine the suit after use.
  • Available in a range of sizes.


  • Powered respirator and loose-fitting hood provide cooling air over the head and through the suit, making the wearer more comfortable and better able to focus on tasks.
  • The loose-fitting hood design provides high protection without the need for a tight-fitting face piece, which means:
  • Many wearers feel less constricted.
  • Can be used by wearers with facial hair.
  • Training needs are reduced.
  • Face-fit testing is not required.
  • The clear wide-view visor provides reassurance to casualties and victims by allowing easier, friendly ‘whole-face’ communication.
  • The total weight of the PRPS suit with respirator is much less than a gas- tight suit with SCBA, less body contact (belt-mount versus shoulder-harness / tight-fitting face piece), and easier breathing results in a lower physiological load.
  • Improved operational duration over gas-tight SCBA suits.
  • Up to six times the resource efficiency compared with gas-tight SCBA suits thanks to the lower physiological loading and increased duration.
  • Uncontaminated or ‘decontamination-guaranteed’ suits can be re- used following gas-tight re-test and re-certification.
