The PLUS 15 is a filtering escape device for respiratory protection from smoke and fire where there is enough oxygen to sustain life. The PLUS 15 offers protection with its multi-layer filter against particulates, Carbon Monoxide and other toxic gases such as Hydrogen Cyanide, Hydrogen Chloride, and Acrolein commonly found in smoke and fire environments. The PLUS 15's clear hood and oversized nose cup allow for greater visibility, one size fits most and user comfort. Additionally, the Essex PB'R Corporation constructed its PLUS 15 of heat resistant materials for maximum protection from flame licks and radiant heat. The PLUS 15 is packaged inside a moisture resistant barrier pouch inside of a soft nylon pouch.
