Scott is first SCBA manufacturer to get NFPA 2007 approcal

Scott Health & Safety is proud to announce that both of its two newest models of Air-Pak® SCBA’s–the Air-Pak 75™ SCBA and the Air-Pak NxG7™ SCBA–are now fully approved for NFPA 2007 edition, 1981 and 1982 standards. With this announcement, Scott is now the only SCBA manufacturer with complete NFPA 2007 edition approvals on two different models of SCBA, providing firefighters with multiple purchasing options with an array of features not available on any other SCBA.

The Air-Pak 75 SCBA (named in honor of the company’s 75th anniversary) and the Air-Pak NxG7 SCBA were designed based on the “voice of the firefighter” and incorporate the most advanced materials and technologies available today. Both models offer the features the fire service has come to expect from Scott–Top-Down Convertibility™, the easy breathing EZ-Flo® Regulator, HUD integrated electronics, and an array of cylinder options and CBRN approval.

The Air-Pak 75 and the Air-Pak NxG7 SCBA models are designed to meet all the new stringent performance requirements of the new standard. As part of the new NFPA 2007 edition requirements, both models of the Air-Pak SCBA provide on-board datalogging of the most current 2,000 events, including PASS activation, low battery indication, and PASS alarms. With the Scott Pak-Link™, the time/date stamped information can be easily and non-intrusively downloaded wirelessly for record keeping.

In addition to the new additions required by the 2007 NFPA standards, the new models of Air-Pak SCBA’s feature new components including a drag rescue loop, carrying handles, and the integrated Pak-Tracker™ Locator system–a revolutionary RF-based distress alarm system designed to help locate downed, trapped or lost first responders in single or multi-story structures.

Scott Health & Safety has already begun manufacturing the previously NFPA-approved Air-Pak 75 SCBA, and will begin the manufacturing process for the newly approved Air-Pak NxG7 to meet the growing demand for this model of SCBA.
