The Hot Shield (model HS-2) Firefighter Face Mask is a multiple layer, patented face protector mask designed by firefighters for use in all wildland firefighting operations. The Hot Shield HS-2 offers unequaled, extreme protection against burns to the face/neck with the added benefit of blocking & reducing the inhalation of smoke & ash particulate. Multiple layers of CarbonX® help maintain the crucial airspace in front of the mouth and nose. This wildland fire mask features soft comfortable inside liners (also CarbonX®) that absorb perspiration and add to user comfort.
Highly breathable mesh CarbonX® covers the center ventilation orifice allowing easy air exchange and helps prevent buildup of CO2. The patented, user-friendly design of the Hot Shield HS-2 allows the firefighter to insert an activated carbon, low cost disposable particle filter w/exhalation valve. CarbonX® is the only inherently non-flammable revolutionary fiber in the world that will not burn, ignite, char, shrink or decompose at temperatures exceeding 2600 F. even for extended periods of time. The HS-2 wildland fire mask weighs 4.0 oz./112 grams, incorporates Scotchlite® Reflective trim for nighttime visibility and is classified as an interface component of Wildland PPE.
