Optrel announces the launch of the new NIOSH-approved Softhood Series for the e3000x Respiratory Protection System

Optrel, a leading international manufacturer of occupational safety products for the industrial and healthcare sectors, announced the launch of the NIOSH-approved Softhood Series. Paired with the optrel e3000x PAPR blower system, the Softhood Series offers the ultimate in respiratory protection, filtering out 99.8% of smoke, aerosols, dust, viruses, and other toxins. 

The Softhood Series is easily adaptable for various industries, including healthcare, agriculture, dentistry, construction, painting, and woodworking. Made of ultra-lightweight nylon fabric, the durable surface allows for optimal cleaning and disinfecting. The anti-fog coated panoramic visor offers an unrestricted view of the area at all times.
