Certified Powered Air helmets ?

What is the European standard for powered air helmets ?

The standard for helmets equipped with respiratory protection unit is the EN 12941, autodarkening filter or passive mineral lens.

The last version of the EN 12941 standard, edited in 2009, adds an additional criteria by mandatory imposing to list all headtops which have been tested, certified and approved with the blower unit PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator).
The list of the Navitek* and Kapio* helmets can be found on page 5 of our Airkos* EN 12941 full certificate, available in PDF here in the Downloads section.

The combination and the assembling of a headtop and a blower unit from two distinctive manufacturers are no longer authorized, and will be prosecuted. Any combination would result in the loss of warranty and the transfer of liability coverage.
