Swiss Air

Your personal declaration of independence

The optrel swiss air half-mask gives you all the freedom you need.

The core element of the optrel swiss air blower respiratory protection system is a ventilated half mask that completely covers the mouth and nose area and supplies them with purified air.

A breathing space is created in the mouth and nose area which, thanks to positive pressure, supports the user in breathing and eliminates tiring breathing resistance. The half-mask, made of high-tech fabric, is designed in such a way that it can be excellently adapted to the individual thanks to a freely adjustable headband. This concept eliminates the need for time-consuming fit tests that are common with conventional half masks.

The clean air comes via a Y-hose from a miniaturised blower system, which is comfortably carried by a carrying unit on the back. In this way, the user is permanently in a "positive pressure air system", which permanently protects his respiratory tract against contaminated air.

Flexible & Versatile. Always with you. For all your tasks.

The optrel swiss air respiratory protection system is independent of the helmet or other equipment used and is therefore the most versatile optrel respiratory protection system available.

It can also be used with a construction/industrial helmet, weldCap® or without a helmet at all.

Your benefits with an Optrel Swiss Air PAPR system



  • Permanent protection of the respiratory tract and lungs against pollutants in the air, regardless of the current activity in the working day. This prevents the development of respiratory and lung diseases.

Security of supply

  • Thanks to a reusable half-mask system, supply is guaranteed at all times, even in the event of a shortage in times of crisis


  • Reduction of pain in the neck and back due to a significant reduction in the weight of head, face and eye protection systems. Heavy combination helmets are no longer necessary.


  • swiss air can be used completely self-sufficient, which allows maximum versatility in combination with the appropriate manufacturer-independent occupational health and safety.


  • Increase the performance of users thanks to positive pressure system, which supports breathing and does not cause any breathing resistance.

Universal applications

  • swiss air is as versatile in application as the tasks in industry, trade, construction, medicine or agriculture.

Cost savings

  • Lowering investment costs due to the elimination of costly fitting tests (no fit test).
  • Reduction of running costs due to massive saving of paper masks as well as their disposal.


  • By planting a tree for each swiss air system sold, optrel compensates more than just the climate footprint of the respective system.
