The unit is therefore approved as a negative pressure respirator for use against CBRN agents. The FRR is the civil use variant of the revolutionary General Service Respirator in use with the UK MoD and as such offers a number of advanced protective features including self regulating primary seals, twin exhalation valves and a secondary filter system that provides unprecedented protection factors and automatic sweat removal.  Breathing resistance, field of vision and hydration rates all significantly exceed accepted industry norms.

The “M” range of CBRN Respirators and Filters for the Police

The M95 and M98 offer both military and civil defence solutions to CBRN respiratory protection. The M95 is a conventional binocular mask with drinking facilities and is ideally suited to military and law enforcement requirements where personal weapon sighting is part of the requirement.

The M98 has an identical level of protection but with a large single visor offers a wider field of view and better facial recognition, a feature that can be important for crowd control and cordon duties.

Additionally Scott design and manufacture a complete line of NBC and industrial filter cartridges to meet customer specified performance requirements.

Powered Air Purifying Respirators

Scott have considerable long term experience in the design and manufacture of PAPR, indeed the first ever PAPR CE certified was produced at their Skelmersdale UK facility.

This is further backed by their in house filter design and manufacturing capability making them an ideal partner to fill operational capability gaps.

A PAPR can provide excellent protection in CBRN related incidents where non IDLH environments exist, thus eliminating the weight of an SCBA.

Additional Capabilities

Other available Scott technologies providing support for law enforcement tactical operations include portable gas detection devices, air compressors (SCBA fill), EEBD escape hoods and communication systems.

Though Life Capability Management (TLCM)

Scott has also developed a full working understanding of TLCM and understand the importance of working across all the lines of development, with the unified customer, to develop the required capability.  Instead of merely developing safety products this Scott philosophy of partnership with the law enforcement and security customer ensures the most cost-effective, comprehensive solutions so current and future operational demands can be met while staying on budget.
