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.
