A fully protected powered respirator for use with all woodworking, building maintenance, DIY, agriculture and craft applications - a wood turners favorite. Suitable for use when machining MDF, dust particals, powder applications, fertilisers and splashes to the face. Approved to new standard BS EN 12941.

Twin filters that are 98% efficient and stop the inhalation of harmful dust by giving a constant flow of filtered air across the face driven by a quiet running fan whilst the combination face-seal ensures no harmful dust enters the mask.
Designed for comfort with an adjustable headband, the motor is positioned away from the sensitive area of the forehead to reduce noise and irritation in use and ensures that the unit is well balanced even when the polycarbonate visor is flipped up. The hood offers some head protection and keeps hair clean. Powered by a removable 8 hour NiMh battery, the unit will also gives an audible low battery warning sound. The brow guard swings open and can be removed for easy access to the filters, fan and battery. Supplied complete with 8 hour battery, charger, pair of filters, visor overlay and airflow indicator. Eye protection to BS EN166, respiratory protection to BS EN12941 THP2.

Heavy and bulky, but way better than lung damageI've been using an Airshield Pro for a couple of years now, and despite the downsides I wouldn't be without it.

A good concept but disappointingly executedI bought this hoping that its better-looking seal would make it more effective than the earlier model. Maybe it does, but I can't be sure. I do know that there are two serious disappointments with the new design. Firstly, because of the design you can't wear standard ear defenders so have to rely on the accessories 'designed' to go with it. I won't repeat here my review of those - you can read it for yourself.

Not satisfyingI recently bought this product and it was delivered without the battery pack. Axminster customer service sent me a new one, thanks for that.
