The North 5500 Half Mask Respirator has the same great fit and design of the 7700 in an economical elastomeric material. Ideal for contractors, visitors and other limited use applications.
- Elastomeric half mask is the economical solution that does not skimp on features.
- A wide contoured sealing area provides great fit. The low “dead air” space limits re-breathing of exhaled air for increase comfort and worker productivity.
- Latex free straps stretch and move with the worker while providing optimum support
