The Hot Shield Model HS-2 Wildland Firefighter Face Mask is a highly flame resistant face protector designed by firefighters for use in all wildland firefighting operations. The HS-2 offers extreme protection against burns to the face and neck with the added benefit of blocking and reducing the inhalation of smoke and ash particulates. Multiple layers of patented CarbonX help maintain the crucial airspace firefighters want, and human skin needs, to survive extreme temperatures. The soft comfortable inside liners (also CarbonX) absorb perspiration, adding to user comfort.
Twin layers of CarbonX mesh at the center ventilation orifice allow for easy air exchange and help prevent buildup of CO2. The patented, user-friendly design allows the firefighter to insert an activated carbon disposable particulate filter with exhalation valve.
CarbonX is the only inherently non-flammable fabric in the world. This fabric weave will not burn, ignite, char, shrink or decompose at temperatures of up to and exceeding 2000 degrees Farenheit, even for extended periods of time.
The HS-2 weighs just 5.8 oz. It incorporates reflective trim for night time visibility and can be classified as an interface component of Wildland PPE, according to the NFPA Standard #1977 Wildland Protective Clothing and Equipment, Appendix. Each HS-2 is packaged with 2 filters.
