The FM12 mask, initially developed for NATO operations, has already become the most widely adopted respirator across the world by numerous military and law enforcement organizations.

Its unique blend of features makes it the ideal solution for those responding to incidents involving weapons of mass destruction, as well as for the full range of military operations

Its low profile is ideally suited to tactical situations where sighting of weapons or integration with other equipment is required. The lightweight face piece of the CBRN FM12 is designed to provide a high level of wearer comfort combined with very low breathing resistance.

Providing high levels of respiratory protection against CBRN agents and Toxic Industrial Materials, the FM12 has gained CE certification.
