RPB T-Link Respirator

RPB T-Link Respirator


The T-Link Respirator is a robust and highly flexible solution for industrial painters, designed with safety in mind. The T-Link is one of the GVS / RPB family of loose-fitting respirators designed especially for coating applications.  These offer the following advantages over traditional close-fitting masks:

  • Safer.  Much more protection from respiratory hazards, with an Assigned Protection Factor of 1000+, due to its positive pressure design. (The typical N95 masks rating is only 10)
  • More User-Friendly.  Facial hair is OK – no need to be clean shaven.
  • Saves time and money.  The hassles and expense of annual fit-testing are eliminated.
  • More comfortable.  Several ventilation options available to keep operators productive during temperature extremes.

These RPB respirators are truly an investment in your people and are expected to improve employee retention. Configure your T-Link to meet your specific needs, as follows:

  • Ventilation system choices:
    • Supplied Air / Constant Flow valve
    • Supplied Air / C40 Heat/Cool climate control
    • PAPR / PX5
    • PAPR / HX5
  • Head suspension choices:
    • Bump Cap
    • Hard Hat
  • Cape choices:
    • Tychem 2000 Full Hood
    • Tychem 4000 Full Hood w/Sealed Seams

The T-Link from GVS / RPB is to painters what the Nova respirators are to blasters.  Not sure?  Contact us to discuss a trial.

RPB T-Link Respirator

Sku: P-HAT17

The RPB T-Link Paint Respirator is a painting hood designed for optimum comfort and visibility for painting contractors. The hood is designed to turn with the operator’s head, and its large visor enables excellent downward and peripheral vision while wearing the hoods, while the fixed lens frame prevents the lens from rubbing up against the operator’s nose.


This respirator is typically used to protect and provide clean airflow to a painting contractor in an industrial coating or painting setting. It can also be fitting with cooling air systems to ensure maximum operator comfort while on the job.


  • Securely attached hood to prevent it from blowing up off the operator’s head
  • 2 types of head protection: Bump Cap and Hard Hat
  • Full visor frame to prevent the lens from hitting operator’s nose
  • Soft breathable inner bib with draw cord
  • Long tuck-in collar for extra protection and upper body airflow
  • Simple breathing tube attachment via Swivel Inlet fittings
  • Helmet padding with ear protect and ratchet adjustment
  • If you need compliance to have a respirator with a ANSI Z87+ Safety Lens, we recommend using the Zlink from RPB
  • Communication system upgrades available
