Scott Safety, a global leader in the development and manufacture of high specification respiratory protection for workers in high risk industries, has been protecting industrial users for over 80 years. Recently, the company launched a new range of breathing apparatus that will provide high comfort, reliability and performance for industrial workers around the world.
Part of the new ProPak SCBA range and built on the success of Scott Safety’s original Propak SCBA unit, the ProPak-i incorporates the proven technology found in Scott Safety’s trusted SCBA products and is designed to meet the needs of a full range of industrial applications. From the professional industrial firefighter, to those users requiring SCBA to perform tasks in hazardous environments such as cleaning and confined space working, the ProPak-i offers the wearer comfort and ease of movement but incorporates a rigid backplate for durability and performance. The Scott Safety ProPak-i can be specified in a number of configurations including Split Demand Valve Coupling (SDC), Y-Piece (Y2C) and attachments for Airline, which can also be used for Rescue Second Man and decontamination purposes.

It brings together Scott Safety’s engineering capability and customer-led design innovation to provide a choice of reliable products made to the highest specification.
Tony Pickett, Scott Safety’s Global Product Manager – Air Supplied, said: “With over a million firefighters worldwide trusting Scott Safety’s equipment, our SCBA range is the preferred choice. Our latest innovation is customer-led, by listening to what firefighters need we have completely re-designed our SCBA offering to provide a choice of equipment and the ProPak-i will suit the unique demands of today’s industrial worker. Although this new range features all the latest technology, it has been future proofed to incorporate developments in electronic and telemetry applications.”
