Height-adjustable carrying system
The PSS 7000 has been designed for maximum comfort and stability during use in harsh fire fighting environments. Incorporating a rigid harness connection to a 3-point-height adjustment backplate, advanced harness materials and a pivoting waist belt, the PSS 7000 remains firmly in position regardless of the task in hand.
Maximum performance harness material
The PSS 7000 utilizes new state-of-the-art harness materials which have been specially designed to withstand the high level wear and tear fire fighters subject them to on an almost daily basis. Incorporating sturdy stainless steel buckles and long-life Aramid blend webbing, it is well suited to extended wear and frequent use.
Service friendly, low maintenance
To keep both downtime and costs to a minimum during service and maintenance, the PSS 7000 incorporates a number of unique design features:
‒ Dräger’s innovative “slide and lock” harness mechanism facilitates fast and simple harness and waist pad connection/removal from the backplate without the need for tools
‒ The first stage reducer snap fit connection allows the pneumatics to be fitted or removed quickly and easily from the SCBA
‒ “Push in and out” hose clips allow rapid removal of hoses from the harness pads for cleaning without the need to remove the clip itself
‒ Closed, single piece harness and waist pad design to prevent excessive water absorption, reducing cleaning and drying time
To minimize the risk of snagging and to protect against physical damage, both gauge and air supply hoses are run through integrated channels in the PSS 7000 backplate. The hoses are routed with up to two per side within the channels, allowing the PSS 7000 to be configured to the users preference. Conventional waist mounted hoses can also be fitted, making the PSS 7000 one of the most versatile SCBA’s available.
