This PVC Hood Gas Mask Accessory can ONLY be purchased with one of the SGE Gas Masks seen here. They ship direct from the manufacturer to you.
Integral PVC Hood Option
Add a PVC hood to your SGE mask. The over-hood shroud covers the head, shoulders & upper chest; unlike other over-hoods, there are no gaps between the face-piece & hood. This is because the over- hood is permanently connected between the poly- carbonate visor & facial gasket, which eliminates the possibility of user error & contaminates passing through the seal around the mask. This design leaves the head harness outside the hood for easy adjustment of the straps.

OCEAN REEF Group has two manufacturing plants of 6,000 and 40,000 sq/feet in San Diego, California (USA) and Genova (Italy).

The Military and Respiratory PPE is known under the ME.ST.EL Safety brand.
In the late 1980’s, ME.ST.EL decided to broaden its fields of production to not only include medical, diving, and military products but safety products as well. This change was due to a growing need for safety throughout the world. ME.ST.EL ambitiously decided to create a gas mask, based on new innovative concepts, that was very different in design than all the gas masks produced up to that point.
The new full face gas mask was named the SGE 1000. SGE 1000 did not use the cumbersome system of twin goggles with a rubber mask. Rather, the “SGE” mask used a transparent polycarbonate rigid full face visor shield with a comfortable rubber skirt (patented springing seal design) which covered the face and supported the other components of the gas mask.
After a few years, the Protection Division received international acclaim for the success of the SGE 1000. After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center in New York, ME.ST.EL realized the need to change its market strategy and it was compelled to assist in the need by providing safety solutions to prevent casualties and properly assist people in possible future situations that may be similar to the disaster on September 11, 2001. ME.ST.EL decided to create a new “Homeland Security Program Range of Products” and, soon after, a new working group started to operate.
This new branch would focus its efforts on developing and producing safety products, specifically breathing protection devices, which would be beneficial in Homeland Security situations.
The first ME.ST.EL gas mask, the SGE 1000, started a worldwide generation of “advanced” breathing protection devices. Currently, the SGE 1000 is out of production; however, most of the protection products that ME.ST.EL Safety currently produces are evolutions from the SGE 1000.
