Safety Never Felt So Comfortable 

Optrel has launched a brand-new ventilated half mask, Swiss Air  This product has been designed as a revolutionary PAPR system with TH3 certified particle master filter, a adjustable airflow 100-130 l/min and a 14hr power pack. This half mask completely covers the mouth and nose area supplying users with purified air to create a breathing space. Swiss air has positive pressure that supports the user in breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance. Being made with high-tech fabric is designed in a way that is adapted to the individual thanks to a freely adjustable headband without any need for fit tests that are common within the half mask.
The Swiss Air protective mask system brings clean breathing air into your environment and lets you breathe as freely as you can. Many industries and public areas produce pollutants such as smoke, soot particles, particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, ozone or viruses that can enter the lungs through the nose, throat and trachea.

Slim, ergonomic, light as a feather. This is how the swiss air presents itself at first glance. A second glance reveals its technological leadership. The core element of this solution is a ventilated half mask that completely covers the mouth and nose area and constantly supplies it with purified air (according to TH3 standard). A breathing space is created in the mouth and nose area which, thanks to positive pressure, supports the user in breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance. In this way, the user is permanently in an "overpressure air system" which permanently protects his airways against contaminated air. The half mask, made of high-tech fabric, is designed in such a way that it can be excellently adapted to the individual thanks to a freely adjustable headband. This concept eliminates the need for time-consuming fit tests that are common with conventional half masks.
Clean air is supplied through the Y-hose by a miniaturised blower system, which is comfortably carried by the wearing unit on the back. The filter unit is 45mm narrow and weighs just 550g - a new record that leads to a significant reduction in neck and back pain.

Always with the customer in mind, Optrel strives to combine new technology with current and acute customer needs. As usual, the brand value always remains recognisable and stands for quality - swiss made. However, Optrel goes one step further.  Trees are certainly the best suppliers of fresh air on our planet. For the sale of every single Optrel swiss air respiratory protection system, Optrel therefore plants a tree as part of a global reforestation project, thus more than compensating for the swiss air's carbon footprint. Because fresh air is important for all of us.


  • Ventilated half mask made of fire-resistant material covers mouth and nose area completely. Positive pressure supports breathing and avoids fatigue.
  • Infinitely adjustable headband for all sizes from XS to XL.
  • Y-hose with adjustable neck strap and flexible hose elements guides the air directly into the half mask.
  • Shoulder harness for ergonomically perfect weight distribution of the super-light filter system (only 550 g).
  • Powerful TH3 filter unit with innovative, ultra-flat design. Lightweight and comfortable to carry, highly efficient in use.
  • Blower unit with automatic air flow calibration and 14h high performance battery for an uninterrupted working day.

     Health benefits include

  • Health – Permanent protection of the respiratory tract and lungs against pollutants in the air, regardless of the current activity in the working day. This prevents the development of respiratory and lung diseases.
  • Ergonomics – Reduction of pain in the neck and back due to a significant reduction in the weight of the head, face and eye protection systems. Heavy combination helmets are no longer necessary.
  • Performance – Increase the performance of users thanks to the positive pressure system, which supports breathing and does not cause any breathing resistance.
  • Cost savings – Lowering investment costs due to the elimination of costly fitting test. Reduction of running costs due to the massive saving of paper masks as well as their disposal.
  • Security of supply – Thanks to a reusable half-mask system, supply is guaranteed at all times, even in the event of a shortage in times of crisis.
  • Independence – Swiss air can be used completely self-sufficient, which allows maximum versatility in combination with the appropriate manufacturer-independent occupational health and safety
