Respirators are inevitable when you're working in a metal fabrication workshop. They protect us from breathing in the bad stuff, like welding fumes that can cause cancer and other effects. But what about comfort and functionality? Ever wondered if there was something that fits well, doesn't glue to your face, is light weight, not too bulky, and works with the other PPE you need to wear?....Wonder no more - we've developed just the thing!


Meet the CRAFTSMAN 710 Series

  • Respirator 710 workingOh so comfortable with an advanced soft silicon mask for a smoother feel and flexibility. Say goodbye to the glue-like grip of rubber, and hello to lightweight smooth silicon giving you more comfort and protection with long term use.
  • Multi-fit filter connection - that's right, you're not limited to one type of filter. The 3 point bayonet filter connection enables different types of filters to attach. 
  • Low profile design - protection without the bulk! For once you'll be able to wear a respirator and still get a good view of your work - it fits well with safety glasses and goggles, under helmets and any other PPE you might be wearing.
