MONROE, N.C. — 3M Scott Fire & Safety announces the extension of the Air-Pak X3 Pro platform with its latest NFPA 1981, 2018 Edition offering (approvals pending). The product was designed to enhance cleanability, comfort and connectivity, while meeting the performance requirements of the NFPA 1981 and NFPA 1982, 2018 Edition standards.
The Air-Pak X3 Pro combines high-performance material selection with an easy-to-remove harness for cleaning, decontamination and serviceability. With minimal water absorption, the harness assembly can be machine laundered to help with exposure reduction. The ability to launder the equipment at the fire station promotes better adherence to standard operating procedures and provides quick and easy access to the equipment when firefighters need to respond to the next call.
The Air-Pak X3 Pro features an enhanced shoulder harness design to ease donning the SCBA and minimize pressure points and reduce user fatigue. A naturally articulating waist pad provides the firefighter a greater range of motion, while transferring weight to the hips for a more balanced load. The regulator design offers low breathing resistance to help reduce user burden and improve operational efficiencies.
With Bluetooth technology, the Air-Pak X3 Pro supports wireless connectivity for firefighter safety and fireground accountability. An electronic PAR feature allows incident command to communicate with firefighters using the Scott Connect Monitor Pro software interface without creating additional radio traffic. The Air-Pak X3 Pro also includes a wireless connection to smartphone devices to streamline data downloading and configuration changes.
