Awesome product and great customer service. We are a small department with limited training facilities and often do training with no smoke. I was never in favor of training with a nomex turned backwards. BA smoke shields are by far the most realistic way to train without smoke. Thank you, B.A Shields for the great product

Great product. We met the BA Shield folks at FDIC 23, they introduced us to their product and were very receptive to all our questions and concerns. We purchased the smoked out shields. They are a great training aid when you are wanting to have a realistic view of an interior fire without having the fire and smoke. They also are a great tool to give the public a more realistic view of what a firefighter is confronted with in a burning structure. Some personnel purchased individual shields for their SCBA mask. It eliminates a cumbersome mask bag, still allows for face shield protection, and is easily removed when exiting the apparatus.

Hello, we have only had their Smoke Shields for a short time, but so far a big success. Thank you

The shields seem to fit well and I’m anxious to start training with them.


Since the invention of SCBA training, firefighters have had only two options for training: full vision, or blacked out.The problem is, interior firefighting doesn’t always fall into either of those categories!


Overcome Partial Senses in Training

Every veteran firefighter knows that partial smoke environments are just as tough, if not tougher, than zero visibility. Science tells us that completely “turning off” one sense will heighten the ability of your other senses. But when firefighters are working in that partial visibility environment, their eyes struggle to decipher what they’re seeing. 

That struggle dulls the other senses and it isn’t until the firefighter is experienced enough to quickly interpret what their limited vision is telling them, that they can operate effectively.

But without a smoke machine, partial smoke is very difficult to replicate without turning your training into a massive theater act (which reduces the training value).

Until Now


The Smoked Out Series BA Shield is an incredibly tough, molded outer shield that snaps on to the most common firefighter SCBA facepieces. When in place, the translucent material lets in just enough light to replicate the limited visibility that can occur in developing fires.


The best part? These shields can be snapped on and off in an instant, are impervious to moisture and impacts, and will allow firefighters to don and doff their masks in training exactly like they would on the fireground.

No slipping off, no wax paper poking the firefighters in the eye… infinitely reusable… training as close to real life as possible. 

So firefighters can crawl and operate without a single concern for the surface of their mask, or accidentally knocking off the “blackout shield”.

They can get on the floor, crawl, slide, bang into things, manhandle dummies, and even practice forcible entry… Just like they would operate at a real job.


And when not being used for training, these shields can live ON the masks, providing nearly impenetrable protection for the expensive mask lens.


BA Shields are a one-of-a-kind protection and training tool, and are in use all over the world by some of the most premiere agencies.

Tested and proven.
