    The Aura Particulate Respirator 9211+ features a comfortable braided headband; contoured nose panel; and chin tab for easy positioning, donning and adjustment. In addition, the Aura respirator design has an embossed top panel that helps reduce potential fogging from warm, moist, exhaled airflow. Individual packaging helps protect the respirator from contamination before use.

    Full facepiece

    The AV-3000 facepiece with SureSeal system features a U-shaped seal design that flexes with every movement of the facepiece, resulting in a higher fit factor and more comfortable seal. For proper and quick donning, a positioning tab is located on the back of the head harness. The smaller Kevlar or Poly head harness design eliminates bunching under helmets and hard hats.
