Dräger Comfort Vest
Increase performance by up to four hours – without the need for elaborate preparation or logistics. When work gets hot, the Dräger Comfort Vest CVP 5220 is always ready to use because it delivers the cooling action itself. This means no pre-freezing, no dipping into water, no risk due to dangerous circulating air, and no time loss.
The Dräger Comfort Vest helps to absorb excess body heat and offers comfort for the wearer when working in high temperature surroundings or performing tasks that are physical enough to cause excessive sweating. It will also rehabilitate after working in hot climates.
AUTOMATIC COOLING ABOVE 82 °F
The vest’s cooling action is derived from 20 individual PCM-elements (Phase Change Material) integrated into the inner lining. When the user’s skin temperature reaches 82 °F, whether performing tasks that are physical enough to cause sweating or working in high temperature surroundings, the content of the PCM-elements gradually becomes liquid by absorbing the excessive heat. This reduces skin temperature by approximately 5-7 °F. Depending on the level of physical work and the ambient temperature, the cooling benefit for the wearer of the Dräger Comfort Vest can last for up to four hours.
REGENERATES WHEN STORED – WITHIN FOUR HOURS AT MOST
When the vest is stored at a temperature below 72 °F, the cooling elements will regenerate within 30 minutes to four hours, depending on the ambient temperature. The cooler the temperature, the sooner the vest will be ready to be worn again. Extensive preparatory and post-work activities – as with ice vests – are no longer necessary.
The arrangement of the PCM-elements provides high freedom of movement thanks to the flexible fit. The vest can be worn underneath protective clothing such as turnout gear, coveralls or gas-tight chemical protective suits. Broad Velcro fasteners ensure a tight fit.
