Company receives award for respiratory protection products

Dräger was recently awarded the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Consumer Award for respiratory protection. This award goes to honor the manufacturer that best fulfills customer needs in respiratory protection concerning the aspects of safety, ease of use, technical features, comfort and design.

The rating is given based on two studies from Frost & Sullivan concerning personal protective equipment. In these studies, both users and purchasers of equipment throughout the U.S. and Europe rated manufacturers on how satisfied they were with the products and solutions the manufacturers offered for various segments.

In the area of respiratory protection, the respiratory protective devices offered from Dräger were rated number one out of eleven manufacturers. Companies like 3M and Tyco/Scott were among those evaluated. Dräger offers a complete portfolio of respiratory protection products including dust masks, half and full face masks, powered air purifying respirators, air-line supplied systems, self-contained and closed circuit breathing apparatus as well as a complete range of filtering and supplied air escape equipment.
