Avon’s new Deltair self-contained breathing apparatus was debuted at Firehouse Expo this year. Highlights of this new SCBA design include a tactical switch that allows firefighters to instantly switch from ambient air to cylinder air. That’s an interesting new concept that could save air and the hassle of having firefighters mess with a secondary regulator to get air flowing. Firefighters can leave there masks on at all times and turn the air on when they need it.
The new AVON SCBA also has one power source, a pack of six C-cell batteries that powers everything on the SCBA, according to the manufacturer.
The new AVON product has several tweaks to enhance ergonomics and changes to the mask to improve the field of vision.
