Dräger HPS 7000

by Marcus

The Dräger HPS 7000 firefighter’s helmet is in a class of its own thanks to its innovative, sporty and dynamic design, ergonomic fit and components which make it a multifunctional system solution. It provides you optimum protection during every operation.

Tailor-made fit for every head

Developed in close cooperation with customers worldwide, the two helmet shells of the HPS700 for head sizes from 50 to 66cm cover a wide range of individual head and face shapes. With a weight of approx. 1,380g, as the basic version, it is one of the lightest in its class. The comfortable interior fitting, made of skin-friendly, anti-allergic and flexible materials, the Dräger HPS7000 stands out with its high level of operating and wearing comfort.

Comfort is a matter of position

The Nomex padding alongside the 4-point harness allows for safe and easy adjustment to any head shape and a comfortable fit. The optimum balance of the helmet can be adjusted in the neck and chin area. The integrated comfort hairnet enables the height to be adjusted and assures a good climate inside the helmet. During operation, the head size can be adjusted quickly via an easy-to-operate size adjustment wheel with safety mechanism on the outer shell, even with wet and thick gloves.

Design at its strongest

The ergonomic design evenly distributes the weight to the head and relieves the neck muscles. The large and modern facial protection visor offers unrestricted protect with best visibility. The visor can be permanently fixed when used in operations under chemical protection suits. A safe alternative is provided by the integrated and individually adjustable protective goggles with integrated softpad edge protection. Both visors leave enough space for the simultaneous use of corrective glasses or respiratory masks. The helmet can be configured to the user – select from a variety of colours and accessories and also pick an individual emblem for your front plate.

Innovative system design

As a provider of integrated system solutions, Dräger sets new standards for the interaction of its products. The universally and individually adjustable mask connection system of the Dräger HPS 7000 creates a strong and safe helmet-mask combination The full-face mask FPS 7000, the integrated mask communication unit FPS 7000 COM-PLUS and the SCBA of the PSS series allow you to optimally configure the overall system. The light-weight LED helmet lamp is integrated into the helmet shell and illuminates the whole working area. The interior fitting can be equipped with various audio/speech headsets for different radios. This ensures reliable communication even in loud environments.

Highest safety – the material mix makes the difference

Despite its low weight, the Dräger HPS 7000 is one of the safest full-shell helmet in its class. Its outer shell of composite material in combination with the PUR inner shell provides reliable protection against thermal and mechanical influences. The plastic reinforced with glass fibre and aramide webbing resists extreme temperatures. It is even able to withstand the enormous radiation heat and flame engulfment of a flashover

Ready again in no time at all

The Dräger HPS 7000 is easy and efficient to service due to the minimum number of components. The entire interior fitting can be removed and re-installed in just a few steps. You can replace individual components easily and quickly, using standard tools. All helmet components are cleaned and disinfected manually or in an industrial washing machine.

Outstanding Design

The firefighter’s helmet Dräger HPS 7000 has been awarded two major design awards:

– iF product design award 2014
– red dot design award 2013

Both awards count among the most important international design competitions and not only rate design quality, but also aspects such as safety, ergonomics, functionality, degree of innovation and environmental compatibility.
