The uninitiated may call this a gas mask. That doesn’t mean you should believe them. A Lamborghini is not just a car, champagne is not merely wine...
Similarly, when the MSA makes a gas mask, it’s a little blasphemous to refer to it by anything less than its proper, well-earned title. This is a Positive Pressure Full-Face Respirator, top of the line, peak of the summit - the crop has never been so creamed.
Built for breathing calmly in tense situations, MSA's ultra elite design has proven effective in search and rescue missions, confined space operations, riot control, firefighting, welding, sanding, asbestos removal, and counter terrorism.
Featuring a Hycar Rubber® or Silicone face piece, and a standard 40mm threaded respirator connection, this mask guarantees clear air, vision, and communication. A specialized airflow system keeps the distortion-free coated lens from misting, while the speech diaphragm allows unimpeded conversation.
The Ultra Elite is designed to be fully user serviceable, with a plentiful market of spare parts and simple instructions for maintenance. The design is also fully modular, compatible with standard cartridge filters, as well as SCBA and powered filtration systems. With adjustable, five-point harnesses (both rubber and EZ-Don options available), these are among the most comfortable and effective full face respirators on the market.
Our selection came to us having seen use in a riot control role. Our masks are in great condition, and have been hand-washed by our staff. However, we have not tested the masks. You would be well advised to read the Ultra Elite manual and follow MSA's inspection protocol prior to serious use of the mask.
