NFPA 2013 Approvals For Avon Protection SCBA

Avon Protection announced the award of NFPA 1981 and 1982, 2013 edition approvals for the Deltair™ self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

First previewed at FDIC 2013, the respiratory protection product, which represents a $5 million investment for Avon has been eagerly awaited by members of the fire service industry. The SCBA, developed following extensive field research, offers unprecedented reliability, durability and ease of use to dramatically improve firefighters’ effectiveness.

Deltair SCBA offers air management, single-power supply, clear communications, and optimal weight distribution for firefighters and other first responders.

The product’s patented user-friendly air management switch allows firefighters to instantly shift from ambient air to cylinder air when required. The user is able to wear their face mask at all times. A quick disconnect option enables the firefighter to replace their cylinder in seconds without removing their gloves. These upgrades, as requested by industry professionals, allow extended operational time for focus on fire management and lifesaving efforts.

Avon is committed to providing the best customer experience in the industry, from its total solutions services to experienced customer service professionals. Avon offers a class leading 10-year warranty on the electronics and a 15-year warranty on the pneumatics of the US-manufactured Deltair.
