Advantage 400 Half Mask Series [On Duty now for the Future]

The MSA Advantage family of full face and half masks is now expanded by a new and innovative product that stands out due to exceptional comfort and sophisticated design: The Advantage 400 half mask.
The Advantage 400 sets standards never seen before in the area of ease of use. The user can quickly adjust the mask according to his individual requirements. Advantage 400 only consists of three major components, that can be easily cleaned: head harness, nose cup and 4-point yoke.
The patent-pending single loop head harness is unique to the market. It grants the user an intuitional operation and offers high comfort and flexibility. The drop-down option allows the user to remove the mask from the face without removing his other safety equipment [like helmet, ear muffs or spectacles]. The respirator can be worn along the chest until the next use. Lock-down permits to set the harness to the proper fit. It can be then reused without any further adjustments. Due to the single loop feature of the harness there are no pressure points or dangling straps in the user’s face. This results in maximum comfort with 100% safety.
The one-piece MultiFlex nose cup is made of soft and smooth co-molded silicone and rigid plastic. This unique combination gives the face piece great durability and extraordinary stability when worn, without compromising comfort. Furthermore the one-piece feature reduces maintenance effort.
The 4-point yoke consists of hard plastic and guides the harness straps to a perfect fit. The yoke’s lever locks the mask according to the adjustment.
The Advantage 400 is either available with single thread EN 148-1 connection [Advantage 410] or with twin bayonet MSA connection [Advantage 420]. For both versions MSA offers a wide range of different filters, suitable for all applications.
