Kite a healthy option

Kite  a healthy option

Monday 26th June 2017

The dangers of inhaling even small quantities of industrial dusts are well known; a whole range of unpleasant ailments with lung cancer being the worst of all. A simple face mark will help, but would you want to wear one for eight hours plus per day?

Thorite has started to stock a brand new innovation in face masks from Aylesbury based, Respair. Kite is a new, motor driven respiratory protection device. The motor unit itself is fitted with a filter, battery and the all-important fan which provides a cool, clean air flow which is monitored by an electronic controller.

The very low filter resistance coupled with light weight of the unit means that the operative can wear the Kite for longer periods than with conventional face masks. Respair has also developed software for Kite which warns the operative when the filter needs to be changed and when the battery needs to be recharged. The entire unit weighs in at just 800g.

Kite can be used in any industrial environment where airborne.

Thorite has just launched its new catalogue which features over 760 pages of products and services. For your copy please phone 0800 158 3920.
