Through the NFPA, firefighters have strived to improve the durability and performance of SCBA and PASS devices.

To this end, the  NFPA 2007-edition standards for self-contained breathing apparatus and personal alert safety systems call for a PASS alarm that performs at 500º F, electronics that remain waterproof after six immersion cycles at 1½ meters depth and a 350°F heat exposure, and electronics that function after a rigorous 3-hour tumble test. They also raised the bar on voice communication capability, now requiring a minimum score of 85% at a 10-ft distance (allowing an electronic or mechanical system). (Previously this was 72% at 5 feet.)

MSA’s FireHawk M7 Air Mask represents a true technological achievement in critical personal protection. As firefighters determined the safety requirements that would be needed to meet the NFPA 1981 and 1982–2007-edition standards, MSA’s engineering teams began designing the solutions.

The FireHawk M7 Air Mask emerged with seven life-safety design components built on a modular Air Mask platform, developed to exceed the new NFPA 2007 requirements and provide firefighters with the highest-quality SCBA currently available.

  • Weight with empty H-30 cylinder (including batteries) is 20 lbs-8 oz
  • Battery life of electronics > 1 year with frequent use (standard alkaline cells)
  • RFI shielding up to 50v/m radio signal load across an 80 MHz to 2.5 GHz range
  • PASS heat alarm performance > 95 dB @ 500°F
  • Water immersion protection – M7 electronics at 5 ft. depth for 1 hour
  • Air delivery – manufactured to the NFPA standard 320 lpm rate; design qualified at twice NFPA rate (640 lpm) cyclic breathing
  • Data-logging – most recent 25-hours-of-use information
  • Electronic ID tagging (RFID) standard with M7 Accountability System
  • Optional equipment: Rescue Belt rappelling system (50 ft. & 75 ft.), M7 Accountability System, Extend-Aire and Quick-Fill emergency breathing systems, Push-to-connect or Slide-to-connect regulator attachments, swiveling lumbar pad and chest-strap.
  • Standard equipment includes: Facepiece cross-contamination check-valve, thermal alarm, time-remaining display, wireless programming and network, front & rear buddy lights, auto-dim HUD, large drag-carrying handles, stainless steel cylinder band with cam-lock system.
