Respiratory protective equipment that keeps you safe

In many industrial facilities, employees must work in areas where hazardous substances are present, or where the level of oxygen and amount of toxic substances may change at any time. These health hazards can affect the lungs or cause disease – and in extreme cases, can even lead to death. Where toxic substances can’t be completely controlled, respiratory protective equipment must be used. Dräger designs respiratory protection devices in line with our Technology for Life philosophy. No matter the scenario, Dräger helps you put safety first.
