MSA Safety Incorporated Receives Approval for European Market for Next-Generation Breathing Apparatus for Fire Fighters

MSA Safety Incorporated announced that its breakthrough G1 Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) for firefighters has obtained European Norm 137 (EN137) approval, meaning the G1 SCBA complies with European safety, health and environmental protection requirements. With the EN137 approval, MSA now has the green light to manufacture and sell its G1 SCBA in the EU, as well as most other European countries. MSA expects to begin shipments of the EN-approved version of the G1 SCBA late in the fourth quarter. With one patent issued and 13 patents pending, the all-new SCBA platform includes several revolutionary features, including the elimination of all electronic components from the facepiece; a 'Central Power' feature that powers the entire unit from a single battery compartment; darkness- and smoke-piercing 'buddy lights' that provide visible indicators of critical air supply data from any angle; and improved voice amplification communications, all of which come standard on every MSA G1 SCBA. Currently, the G1 SCBA is produced at the company's facility in Murrysville, Pa., near Pittsburgh, Pa. However, with the EN certification, MSA will begin to ramp up production in Berlin, Germany, primarily to serve the European and international markets outside of North America.
