S-Cap Hood

Supplied by MSA.

The S-Cap Escape Hood is a highly visible, one-size-fits-all yellow hood that offers protection against smoke and gas from fires, especially carbon monoxide.

The easy-to-use unit dons quickly and features a nose cup for a wide variety of head and face sizes, while the cotton neck seal ensures a tight fit. The high-performance filter offers thorough protection, while the wide lens provides an increased field of vision and the low breathing resistance reduces claustrophobia.

•    Wide lens offers increased field of vision
•    Low breathing resistance reduces likelihood of claustrophobia

Safe Protection

The smoke hood S-CAP features a clearly visible bright yellow hood fitted with a wide lens allowing a large field of vision. Inside the hood, a nose cup gives a perfect adaptation to a wide variety of head and face sizes and is directly connected to a multipurpose filter with a broad protection range, including carbon monoxide. For a better res- piratory comfort, the hood is also equipped with an exhalation valve.

Improved Performance

S-CAP has seen its performance improved with the addition of a light cotton neck seal, without affecting the ease of donning, even for per- sons wearing spectacles.This high level of performance exceeds by far the requirements of the revised European standard EN 403:2004.

Immediately Operational

The protection with S-CAP is effective within seconds and does not require any other specific procedure. The filter is designed for a rated service time of 15 minutes, depend- ing on the concentration of the contaminants. This time is adequate for escape from buildings under normal conditions. The smoke hood is designed to be used only once. This way, the wearer is assured of the full performance capab ility of the filter.


S-CAP can be used also by the rescue teams to assist in the evacua- tion of people, even if unconscious. As an additional measure of preventive fire protection, S-CAP can increase the safety in residential areas, hospitals, retirement homes, hotels, office building, or meeting rooms.
