Design gas mask components
As part of this project, Lx Sim’s mandate was to support AirBoss Defense in the development of sub-components at both the engineering and technical design stages.
The AirBoss LBM Gas Mask
Lx Sim designed and manufactured plastic and elastomer parts that contributed to the development of the LBM gas mask.
The latest AirBoss Defense gas masks, marketed in the fall of 2014, retain all the elements of their conventional mask, but with a full visor, lighter weight, compatibility with various types of filters, and the best voice transmission system of all masks approved by NATO.
The C-4 gas masks were judged superior to NATO requirements and to meet the highest standard of military protection. In particular, they are used by the Canadian Army.
To achieve this major project, the Lx Sim team worked closely with the Research and Development Centre at AirBoss Defense, located in Bromont. We frequently went to the places where the work was being carried out in order to increase our understanding of their reality. Our engineer in charge spent over a year on their premises to bring to completion the development of a first-rate product for the defence market.
