New Secure Click reusable respirator platform from 3M

10 January 2020

To help enhance worker safety and further aid in worker compliance, 3M has introduced the all new 3M™ Secure Click™ half facepiece respirator platform, offering next-generation breathability, comfort, and simplicity. The new Secure Click connection works just like a seat belt, enabling workers to confidently connect filters and cartridges to the facepiece with a simple click.

The 3M™ Secure Click™ platform includes a half facepiece reusable respirator with the world’s

first quad-flow cartridge system. Two dual-flow cartridges on each respirator combine

to create four air flow paths for easier breathing.

The Secure Click™ platform introduces 3M's first speaking diaphragm in a half facepiece (optional in some models). The speaking diaphragm is designed to help provide easier communication while working.

A one-touch user seal check gives workers increased confidence that their respirator is worn properly. Additionally, the low-profile facepiece design features a silicone faceseal with a flex-joint nose bridge for greater comfort, a wide field of view and compatibility with certain welding and grinding shields.

The HF-800 respirator may be used with 3M™ Secure Click™ D8000 Series gas and vapor cartridges and D3000/D7000 Series particulate filters against a variety of gases, vapors and particulate hazards, according to European Standard (EN) and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) approvals.

“We listened to our customers while developing the new Secure Click™ platform,” said Dr. Nikki McCullough, 3M global application engineering and regulatory affairs manager. “From an intuitive filter and cartridge connection and easier breathing filters and cartridges to the optional speaking diaphragm designed to make communication easier, this fully-loaded facepiece is the next generation in respiratory protection from 3M.”
