CAPR System Outfits provide workers an unprecedented level of safety, comfort, convenience, and cost effectiveness while protecting them against harmful aerosolized particulates.
MAXAIR is a pioneer of the NO-Hose, integrated Helmet design, and our CAPR Systems are often referred to as The NO HOSE PAPRs.
The many different full configurations available fall within three primary groups -
- Cuff* configurations - most cost effective, easiest to donn/doff
- Shroud* configurations - full 360o Head and Neck protection
- Hood Configurations - full 360o Head and Neck protection, high fluid resistance (ASTM 1671)
Which Class a PAPR is approved for by NIOSH is greatly influenced by the filtering characteristics of that particular Outfit. See the FAQs section Filter Media, “What are the CAPR Filter Configurations?”, for more information on PAPR Classifications.

OSHA does require annual fit testing on negative pressure respirators as N95s, and tight fitting PAPRs, as both these technologies require a tight fit to the face.
Additionally, OSHA does require all respirator users to complete a medical evaluation questionnaire before using any respirator and to undergo annual retraining on respirators used.
For high level cleaning, MAXAIR recommends two alternatives –
- PDI Super Sani-cloth Germicidal Disposable Wipe, Q55172
- Clorox Healthcare Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectant, CLO30825
MAXAIR Filters should be discarded as contaminated waste if they cause the Helmet Yellow LED to be lighted when the Helmet is powered on for more than about 10 seconds, as well as whenever soiled or otherwise contaminated with body fluids or visibly damaged.
