Dräger Features & Benefits

Reliability

You deserve an SCBA that works as hard as you do, not something that is glitchy or constant need of updates or repairs. Dräger SCBA is the most dependable and reliable SCBA in the market, period.

Fit & Comfort

Dräger SCBA are designed to be worn all day long. They are ergonomic and lightweight. Shoulder and waist straps are made using volcanized chloroprene rubber to provide superior wear resistance and prevent sliding. They also incorporate cooling channels to reduce compression burns

Lowest Cost of Ownership Available

Our cost of ownership is extremely low. There is no need to purchase a trailer full of spare parts when you own a Dräger SCBA. These are the things our competition doesn’t want you to know about.

Designed for Cold Temperatures

Dräger SCBA are designed and built to perform in sub-zero temperatures without freezing up. This is due to the exclusive design of the first stage regulator system.

Higher Flow Rates

Have you ever “over-breathed” you SCBA? If you are a Dräger user, chances are you have no idea what that even means. This is when you draw more air in than the second stage regulator can supply. Dräger liter-per-minute flow rates far exceed industry standards. When your life is on the line, you want an SCBA that will supply you with all the air you need, when you need it.

Technology

Like it or not, technology in the fire service is here to stay. Dräger is an innovative company that is always on the leading edge of technological advances. The electronic systems we use are thoroughly tested before they are put on the market to ensure there are no surprises when you least expect them. Prefer a mechanical system that has minimal electronics? We offer that too!

Masks & Voice Amps

The Dräger Voice Amplifier projects your voice in the direction that you are facing, regardless of your physical positioning. Our Voice Amp is self-contained in mask, not on your shoulder strap. It is not connected to your harness in any way, so there are no sensitive or expensive wires to worry about. Our masks can be fully submerged and washed without needing to remove and disassemble the Voice Amp. Dräger is also one of the only US manufacturers that can offer an NFPA compliant SCBA mask with or without a Voice Amp. Why be forced to pay extra for something that you may not want or need?

Warranty

Dräger offers a 15-year bumper-to-bumper warranty that includes all components of the SCBA, including electronics. We offer a very simple warranty. Be very aware of the details listed in the fine print when looking at our competitor’s warranty offerings.

Made in the USA

Dräger is the worldwide leader in SCBA sales and has manufacturing facilities all over the world. Two of those facilities are in the USA. One is in Pittsburgh, PA and the other is in Houston, TX.
