Dräger PARAT 5550 Fire Escape Hood

The Dräger PARAT 5550 is a fire escape hood packaged in a flame retardant holster. It was specifically developed for fire rescue teams for use in victim rescue. The main advantage of the PARAT 5550 Fire Escape Hood is it’s ease of use.

As it is not always clear in advance whether or not people are inside the scene of the incident, it is recommended to carry a fire escape hood at all times. For at least 15 minutes, a fire escape hood protects against highly toxic fire-related gases, like CO, as well as vapours and particles. Carried at all times, the PARAT 5550 can also save lives in a respiratory protection emergency, for example in the event of a disconnected air supply.

Easy opening, intuitive use

Dräger PARAT 5550 Fire Escape solution keeps carrying, opening and donning the fire escape hood simple: The wearer opens the holster, removes the foil pouch containing the escape hood, opens it along the perforation — with ease, even when wearing gloves — and helps the person being rescued to don it. A clearly visible pictogram further illustrates the donning procedure.

Cost efficiency through long service life

The PARAT 5550 has an eight year service life time and the filter is well protected through the filter plugs during this time. So it is uncritical if the unit is stored for some time before use. The filter expiration date is visible from the outside of the foil pouch enabling cost-effective maintenance. Due to the filter plugs, the product can still be used in the event the foil pouch is punctured.
