The Respro is a positive-pressure protective hood system designed and developed by Shalon Chemical Industries and the Israel Defense Forces to protect children aged 2 to 8 years, from all known NBC agents.
It is specially designed for optimal comfort and safety, assuring extended use with minimal interference in normal activities.
The Respro consists of 3 main integral sub-systems – impermeable hood, air supply unit and a comfortable and brightly colored vest acting as an interface between the other two sub-systems. The light and flexible hood incorporates a large optical grade visor and a drinking system for safe, effortless fluid intake in contaminated environments.
In addition, the hood assembly includes comfortable and easily adjustable elastic webbings comprising the headharness and neck strap, and a flexible rubber hose for directing the filtered air into the hood.
