June 4, 2015

Carbondale, PA, U.S. and Letchworth Garden City, U.K. June 4, 2015. Gentex Corporation, a global leader in industrial safety solutions, will demonstrate their comprehensive line of Pureflo® respiratory protection products, featuring their supplied air and powered air purifying respirators (PAPR), at the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Safety 2015 Professional Development Conference & Exposition in Dallas, Texas June 7th through 10th.

NIOSH approved, the lightweight Pureflo PAPR respirators come in two versions, head or waist mounted, to provide the broadest safety support for industrial workers. The head mounted Pureflo Electronic Systems Management (ESM) Powered Respirators are fully contained in-the-helmet PAPR systems with no trailing leads or hose, making them ideal for general industrial and occupational safety applications where mobility is key. Pureflo HYDRA PAPR respirators provide filtration through a waist mounted twin filter blower unit, and offer multiple head top options, that are also adaptable to supplied air respiratory protection configurations. Both systems offer welding lens options and include electronic warning devices for wearer awareness, and protect against particulate hazards, organic vapors and acid gases.

“Gentex is dedicated to continuing and improving the Pureflo line of industrial respirators, said L.P. Frieder, president, Gentex Corporation.  “We look forward to presenting these technologically advanced solutions at Safety 2015 and to have them as part of our combined portfolio of industry leading industrial safety solutions.”

The customizable, wide range of Pureflo industrial respirators are in use today by a variety of heavy and light duty industries, and numerous multi-national organizations. “Our Pureflo powered and air supplied industrial respirators are among the highest performing, cost effective protective systems available on the market today,” commented Barry Phillips, senior director of industrial safety products at Gentex Corporation. “We’re looking forward to meeting with customers at Safety 2015 to gather their direct input on how we may further evolve these and our other safety solutions.”

Gentex Corporation acquired Interactive Safety Products (Helmet Integrated Systems Limited) in 2014 combining their resources and lines of personal protection and situational awareness solutions to deliver a new level of capability and value to their global customers.

Located at booth #1322, Pureflo product experts will be on hand to meet with customers and media throughout the show. For more information on Pureflo and Gentex’s full industrial safety product portfolio, visit www.gentexcorp.com.
