| By Mary Page Bailey

North Primair 900 (PA900; photo) is a new line of ergonomic and lightweight headpieces that combine face and respiratory protection for challenging work environments. The headgear is an all-in-one eye, face, head and respiratory safety solution, providing ANSI-certified and NIOSH-approved protection for a range of applications. PA900 headgear is designed for use with this company’s Primair 700 Series belt-mounted powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) paired with the PA900 breathing tube, PA032. Features contributing to user comfort include: optimized airflow distribution; an adjustable center of gravity; visors with anti-fog and anti-scratch coatings; and a multi-point adjustable suspension system with retention cradle. — Honeywell International, Charlotte, N.C.
