MSA S-CAP Escape Hood

It has been proven that most victims during dramatic circum stances due to a fire do not get injured by heat or flames but from smoke and gases. S-CAP is an escape hood especially designed to protect persons endangered by smoke and gases generated by fires. The most dangerous of them is carbon monoxide. S-CAP provides an effective protection for eyes, head and especially the respiratory tract, and thus persons can rescue themselves with little risk.

Key features:

Safe Protection

The smoke hood S-CAP features a clearly visible bright yellow hood fitted with a wide lens allowing a large field of vision. Inside the hood, a nose cup gives a perfect adaptation to a wide variety of head and face sizes and is directly connected to a multipurpose filter with a broad protection range, including carbon monoxide. 

For a better respiratory comfort, the hood is also equipped with an exhalation valve. 

The adjustable head harness located on the outside of the hood is directly attached to the nose cup. Once tightened, the hood fits the head closely. The hood material, as well as the harness and the lens, are resistant against heat and short flame contact

Improved performance

S-CAP has seen its performance improved with the addition of a light cotton neck seal, without affecting the ease of donning, even for persons wearing spectacles. 

This high level of performance exceeds by far the requirements of the revised European standard EN 403:2004.

Immediately Operational

The protection with S-CAP is effective within seconds and does not require any other specific procedure.

The filter is designed for a rated service time of 15 minutes, depending on the concentration of the contaminants. This time is adequate for escape from buildings under normal conditions. The smoke hood is designed to be used only once. This way, the wearer is assured of the full performance capability of the filter.

Applications

S-CAP can be used also by the rescue teams to assist in the evacuation of people, even if unconscious. 

As an additional measure of preventive fire protection, S-CAP can increase the safety in residential areas, hospitals, retirement homes,  hotels, office building, or meeting rooms

Easy Donning

S-CAP is protected and stored in a vacuum-sealed aluminised foil bag from which it is taken only prior to donning. No further preparations are required. 

The donning procedure is illustrated on the foil bag. After tearing open the foil bag, the hood is taken out, pulled over the head, the nose cup is fitted over nose and chin, and then the hood is adjusted using the head harness

  •  Easiest donning
  • Simple and quick handling
  • Safe protection of breathing, eyes and head
