H41 Interceptor Hood

Flexible • Breathable • Particle Barrier

Description

With DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex, the H41 Interceptor™ Fire Hood is designed to block potentially carcinogenic particulates and other harmful contaminants.

 

The H41 Interceptor™ blocks 95% of particulates at .2 micron in sizeor larger. For perspective, there are 25,400 microns in one inch and a human hair is about 75-100 microns wide, so a .2 micron particulate is about 500x smaller than a strand of hair. Testing has shown that the particulates sized at less than .2 microns don’t have enough mass to make it through the double layer knit and the Nomex® Nano Flex; essentially meaning that this hood blocks 100% of particulates less than .2 microns.

 

Nomex® Nano Flex is a revolutionary new material that can block fine particulates almost as well as an impermeable membrane. Unlike FR moisture barrier membranes however, this new lightweight (0.5oz/yd2), “barely-there” material is actually completely breathable; Nomex® Nano Flex is a non-woven, web technology, made of submicron continuous fibers.

 

Certified to NFPA 1971, 2013.
