Combined Air/Communications Hoses™ connect disposable and launderable plastic suits to station air headers, such as those used to supply breathing & cooling air in Nuclear Power Generation and Pharmaceutical industries.  

Communication wiring is incorporated into the hose to provide clear, continuous and effective duplex voice communication to the employee in the suit, without additional encumbrance with belt-mounted radios.  Food grade compounds are used for air-breathing supply components to ensure the ongoing safety of the suit wearers.  A tough Urethane Jacket ensures protection against abrasion and snagging on structures commonly found in the workplace and the long life of these products.  The product is supplied with a Hansen® 2RL Male Air Connector, and a parallel electrical connector ensuring alignment and stability while disconnecting the assembly with gloves.
