Dräger PSS® 4000

The Dräger PSS® 4000 is one of the lightest professional self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighters. Combining comfort with exceptional pneumatic performance, this SCBA is designed for applications where simplicity and ease of use are crucial. Lightweight yet robust, and easy to don, the PSS® 4000 provides outstanding breathing protection.

Light, robust and simple to use

The Dräger PSS 4000 is one of the lightest professional self-contained breathing apparatus on the market and contains the same advanced technology and design philosophy as seen in our leading range of standard and extended duration professional breathing apparatus. Supported by a carrying harness with a quick release fastener and simple pull forward mechanism you can quickly and easily adjust the carrying harness.

Enhanced carrying system

The extremely durable carrying system features our ultra-lightweight, high strength composite carrying space frame, which provides outstanding thermal, impact and chemical resistance properties. The professional carrying system of the harness follows the natural contours of the body, improving stability and reducing back strain, stress and fatigue. The system offers optimal comfort for the wearer’s shoulders and waist with an even load distribution, which is comfortably and securely in line with the body‘s centre of gravity. Aside from maximum comfort, the Dräger PSS 4000 also uses the most rugged and durable materials available in order to minimize the impact of even the most hostile of environments.

Maximum performance harness material

The Dräger PSS 4000 utilizes state-of-the-art harness materials, which have been designed to withstand the high wear and tear fire fighters face every day, while providing an enhanced level of comfort. By incorporating hardwearing stainless steel buckles and long-life blend webbing made from aramid fibre, it is ideally suited for extended wear and frequent use.

Easy to maintain and service

Aside from being quick and easy to service, the Dräger PSS 4000 comes with various, innovative design features that help reduce downtime and unnecessary maintenance costs. This can be seen in all major components, which are simple and quick to remove and re-assemble. The harness is attached to the carrying frame by an innovative single-piece retention method. For added convenience, the first stage pressure reducer is integrated into the carrying frame. The closed, single piece harness and waist pad design prevents excessive water absorption, which reduces cleaning and drying time, whilst optimising energy efficiencies.

Integrated hoses

The medium pressure air supply and gauge hoses are completely integrated into the carrying-frame in order to reduce the risk of snagging and potential entanglement. This substantially improves security and safety while entering and working in confined spaces. An additional benefit is the ability to re-route the hoses from one side to the other in order to suit customer preferences for gauge access. This design feature also facilitates the easy replacement of each hose.

Wireless option

Enhance your safety in the field with the Dräger Bodyguard 1500, an advanced personal alert safety system (PASS). This breathing protection control and non-motion-detector generates visual and acoustic alert signals if you are motionless, running out of air or exposed to extreme heat. Furthermore the system provides a wireless data transmission between the PASS and the monitoring devices.

The backlit Tx Gauge wirelessly transmits its pressure data to the Bodyguard 1500 and also to the Dräger FPS 7000 Head-Up-Display (HUD) if being used. This feature provides automatic visual notification from the Tx Gauge and acoustic notification from the PASS when the air supply drops below user-defined limits.

Additional options

The flexible, user-friendly high performance system combines both new and proven innovative technology. The Dräger PSS 4000 guarantees a lifetime of dependable service simultaneously minimizing the costs of ownership, while offering a broad choice of options for every eventuality:


  • Choice of lung demand valves
  • Dräger FPS 7000 full facemask configuration options (as well as Panorama Nova®)
  • Electronic voice communications
  • Steel or carbon composite cylinders
  • Secondary supply hose connections for rescue and decontamination
  • Dräger Bodyguard 1500 for a wireless transmission of pressure data
  • Dräger FPS 7000 Head-up-Display (HUD) and Tx Gauge with entry level electronics
  • Rapid charge option
  • Twin cylinder configuration

Proven air supply technology

Versatility is one of the main principles of the Dräger PSS product series. This is why the Dräger PSS 4000 enables you to benefit from the technological progress of the other models. Incorporating the same advanced pneumatic system used in the class-leading Dräger PSS 7000 the PSS 4000 offers you professional equipment for pioneering fire departments. In addition the twin cylinder option enables you to increase the air supply and benefit from a longer duration.
