Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)

Avon Protection has extended the adaptability of some of their APR masks by adding a lightweight, scalable, tactical SCBA set. Avon Protection have carefully considered the needs and demands of various SCBA uses.

With the ST50 SCBA holding the lowest cost of ownership within the industry and backed by a best-in-class warranty and service support program, a challenging budget can spread further covering more personnel with a comfortable, lightweight, high quality protection offered by the ST50, which is perfect for correctional facilities and plant security.

The ST53 SCBA offers different models to get the user in and out of a multitude of hazardous situations, from the world’s smallest, most compact, chemically hardened demand valve in the ST53SD, up to the revolutionary ST53 Plus. With the field proven multi-role RPE specifically designed for specialist applications, the ST53 Plus protects against Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN), Riot Agents, Toxic Industrial Chemicals and Toxic Industrial Materials while maintaining extreme user flexibility as mission profiles change. It is no wonder why the ST53 plus SCBA is in high demand. For the very few situations that the ST50 and the adaptable flexibility offered throughout all the ST53 configurations may not be enough, there is the ST54 which provides the ultimate protection. Avon Protection designed the ST54 with the tactical multi-mission in mind, with non-reflective components and the flexibility to select the appropriate level of protection quickly and efficiently without degradation of operational effectiveness.
