Parat 5500

The Dräger PARAT® 5500 Fire Escape Hood was closely developed with various users. Always with the fastest escape possible in mind we strived for high ergonomic comfort and unambiguous usability. Once activated the Dräger PARAT® 5500 protects its wearer for at least 15 minutes in toxic environments.

Various mounting and wearing situations were created, tested and evaluated to refine the activation process. Especially in life threatening situations it is absolutely necessary to erase every tiny issue or ergonomic barriers.

A high goal was set - the mask needed to be put on under 12 seconds. With all our efforts and uncountable user testings we achieved a remarkable time just under 6 seconds. Our work was recognized by several design awards.
