The 9000 reusable full-face respirator from Moldex-Metric, Culver City, Calif., has won the OH&S 2011 New Product of the Year Award.
The overmolded lens design creates a full face with light weight, fewer parts, expanded field of vision, and minimal maintenance. The respirator is free of metal parts and PVC.
The stand-away head harness with extra-wide opening helps simplify putting on and taking off the respirator. Strap buckles are molded directly to the facepiece for rugged use and ease of adjustment, the company reports. The lens is coated to help resist scratching.
