Delivering Comfort with 3M PPE

Choose Comfort

  • A welder’s job can require many types of PPE, and we understand the challenge in fitting all of these different products together and having them work together. That’s why 3M has built an integrated welding respiratory system into one solution.

The railroad and marine industries are filled with tough working conditions, but the Greenbrier Companies believed they could improve them. Thanks to products available from 3M, they were able to make their work a safer place.

Breathing safe air isn’t just a requisite, it’s essential – and it’s a health risk that concerned Greenbrier’s Director of Environment, Dave Harvey. Working with our 3M PPE Safety Solutions Team, we were able to help Greenbrier protect welders’ respiratory system with the 3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) System.
