Drager PSS® 7000
The Drager PSS 7000 carrying system makes the use of this vital equipment easier on the wearer with ergonomic comfort that includes height adjustment, pivoting at the waist, and more easy adjustments for every size or shape of firefighter. The supportive waist belt includes a floating action to keep the SCBA at a lower center of gravity as the firefighter moves, twists, reaches, and other actions, meaning less stress on the wearer.
Made of flame-resistant, rubberized materials the straps and belts are easy to clean on the fire ground. In less than 60 seconds, the entire unit can be disassembled (and reassembled) without the need to use any tools, which enables detailed disinfecting at the station. The back frame houses all the upgraded pneumatics and protects hoses from potential snags.
