The Reality of SCBA Mask Protection
► Traditional SCBA Mask bags are bulky, easily contaminated, and do not attach well to firefighters, which means firefighters will typically leave the bag on the apparatus.
► Without protection, SCBA lenses are easily scratched and damaged during firefighting tasks, leading to a reduction in vision or a failure of the lens
► Replacing an SCBA lens takes a technician approximately 1.5 hours per mask, not including fit testing
► scratched and damaged sCBA masks costs time and money, and places firefighters in danger of a mask failure during a fire
Virtually Indestructible Protection that goes where you go
BA Shields securely attach to most common SCBA masks, providing a nearly impenetrable lens shield no matter what the task
SCBA Mask Protection Right to the Front Door
“I am writing this because BA Shields has proven it weight in gold! I constantly had SCBA mask scuffed, scratched & marked up time and time again. Whether it was getting kicked around from getting bunked out or falling out of apparatus from frequent EMS calls, my BA shield has made my mask have obstructed free vision ! It’s incredible. Plus, I submitted a photo for design and even though I went with an in stock design, BA Shields was very patient letting me choose which one to get. I bought a few for the crew as Christmas gifts and it turned out, there was a general appreciation by everyone, considering scuffed SCBA mask has always been a problem. Thank you for the simplest idea, that has made the biggest impact!“Michael Flores – Verified Buyer
Pull it off and pitch it to the side. Don’t worry, nothing can hurt it anyway.
Instant off when it’s time to get on air and get the job done
made from a tough thermo-molded plastic, the shields are Impervious To Moisture, Debris, Impacts, & Contaminants… and will not slow down your mask-up time at all.
“It’s a great product and has really held up well. There have been quite a few times when we were investigating a call and have had to mask up and there was zero issues taking the BA Shield off quickly. I tossed it off on the fire floor one call and came back to find it under debris. All it took was some soap and water and it was good to go.”
Defending Your SCBA Mask Should Never Get In the way of your assigned task
The limitations of traditional firefighter blackout training
► fog machines require a power source, fog solution, and sometimes hours to smoke out a training location… limiting options and increasing the chance that something goes wrong
► wax paper, backwards hoods, peel and stick, and foam inserts all create unrealistic situations for firefighters… reducing training value
► when firefighters are negotiating training obstacles blacked out, the potential for mask damage goes up substantially
► blackout training limitations lead to firefighters not training as often as they should… if at all
Full Black Or Partial Smoke
hyper-realistic Blackout Training Anytime, Anywhere, With Unlimited Uses…
an SCBA mask with a BA Shield on it is exactly the same as an SCBA mask without a shield… except you can’t see out of it
train in any location in minutes. No fog machine residue, no complex set up requirements… just slap on a BA Shield and get to training.
Excellent Training Solution
“I was started out with wax paper and backwards firefighting hoods to simulate 0 visibility. Cumbersome And inconvenient. Later moved to foam inserts, which was a great solution but took time and unmasking for install/removal. I was then exposed to BA shields, which provides a perfect solution to problems. I was easily able to “blackout” my recruits without wasting valuable time. They are also easy to remove by the firefighter or instructor for those times that visibility needs to be instantly restored. I have one living on my mask while not in-use to protect it from unneeded damage and have a few for training. I also used a set of smoked masks for the oriented-officer trainings. Great product.”Cameron Kiyokawa – Verified Buyer

Donning, doffing, searching, and maze courses all without the cumbersome step of “adding” something unrealistic to the mask.

Securely Attached So It Will Not Dislodge and Interrupt Training. Ever.
firefighter training should reflect reality.
train like you fight
The Reality Of Readiness
Scratched up and damaged facepieces mean firefighters not ready to get in the fight when called. A fact that might not be discovered until the moment it’s time to make entry on a critical task.
Replacing SCBA Mask lenses has budget and manpower costs that can easily be avoided. Not because the fireground tasks changed, but because the prevention measures did.
Forcing firefighters to deal with haphazard blackout options like wax paper or hoods on backwards means creating unrealistic training scars. Firefighters need deeply trained muscle memory that reflects reality as closely as possible, otherwise the real deal may be the big show they were never trained for.
Our lifetime warranty covers damage of the product through the course of normal use from punctures, penetrations and deformities (not related to heat exposure greater than that generated by normal atmospheric conditions), including the Shield itself, attachment points, padding material and shock cord. But who knows, send us your story of how your BA Shield was damaged and maybe we will decide to warranty it anyway!
How about a 100% custom shield?
if you can dream it up, we’ll put it on your shield.
These are not “painted on” either.
The only way you’re removing this artwork is with a belt-sander.
