What a good idea

gas mask 2

We recently received these photographs from Purbrook Park School, Hants.

Their Year 8 pupils were asked to research the use of chemicals during WW1, and construct a mask which would save them during a gas attack.

Using off cuts of 51 mm Master Vac, each group was given a catalogue of materials with cost (in old money) from which they could purchase materials up to a cost of 20 shillings.

From these materials, they constructed their mask and had to present their product in a “Dragons Den” style competition to science and engineering experts from the industry.

If you need a sample to see how the hose is constructed, bore and durability, then contact our office directly.
