Temporarily Out of Stock

Hot Shield Face Protector Mask Model HS-2 is designed for and primarily used by the wildland firefighter. Its primary benefit is a high degree of thermal protection to face & neck areas. This is accomplished by use of highly thermally resistant materials and adequate air-spacing, both of which are crucial to meet the goal of protecting the human skin. Hot Shield USA uses CarbonX materials from Tex Tech Industries. CarbonX is a proprietary material tested to withstand extreme temperatures, far exceeding the Radiant Protective Performance requirements of NFPA #1977 Standards for Wildland PPE.

The HS-2 is NOT a respirator but does provides a measure of respiratory relief by the reduction of smoke & ash particulate through an interior “pocket” that accommodates a respirator filter. Any low-level N-95 or EN respirator filter with exhalation valve centered in the middle will work.
