3M Scott’s First Responder Respirator (FRR), a variant of the revolutionary 3M Scott GSR military respirator used by the UK MoD, is a “next generation” system now approved as a NIOSH CBRN APR in addition to other global civil use standards.



While designed to accept Stanag 4155 DIN 40mm threaded filter cartridges the FRR can also be supplied with a secondary particle filter for unequaled performance against CBRN threats. By combination of a highly advanced suite of technologies, the FRR provides superior user comfort and greatly reduced physiological burden, even during long duration events, through self regulating twin primary seals, low breathing resistance, optimum visibility, high drinking rate and automatic sweat removal. Sizing options assure virtually 100% fit capability. Numerous communication, hydration and visor outsert options are available and integration with protective suits, sighting systems, night vision goggles and other associated equipment is seamless.
