    Why Choose a PAPR?

    Respiratory protection systems can offer comfortable, integrated protection against multiple hazards helping to provide respiratory, head, face, eye and hearing protection.

    See 3M Center for Respiratory Protection to help you decide what you need for your program.

  • 1. Easier, more comfortable breathing
    PAPR system uses a blower instead of lung power to draw air through the filter. This lets you breathe more naturally while feeling a constant airflow in your headtop while working in hot and humid environments
  • 2. Integrated protection from the neck up
    The various components of a 3M PAPR system are designed to work together as a single unit – combining respiratory, head, eye and face protection that can be customized for almost any work environment.
  • 3. Options for Limited Facial Hair
    With some respirator systems, beards and heavy sideburns can be a problem, compromising the seal of certain facepieces. 3M offers PAPR systems with headtops designed to accommodate limited facial hair, simplifying protection for more of your employees.
  • 4. Reduced risk of eye injury
    Integrated face shields on certain headtops for 3M PAPR systems help protect eyes and faces from debris, sparks and other hazards. At the same time, they offer excellent optical clarity and a wide field of vision, making it easier to stay out of harm’s way.
  • 5. All Day Comfort
    A 3M PAPR delivers filtered air, all shift long, for improved protection and comfort your employees will want to wear.
