3M and Red dot 2011

DCA win another red dot design award

Published on: 31st March 2011

 Building on our success last year with the Versaflo S-655 Premium Hood, DCA and 3M have gained further recognition from the red dot judges in 2011. 

This year’s competition was even fiercer, with a total of 4,433 entries from 1,700 companies, spanning 60 countries.  Despite this, both new members of 3M’s Versaflo range impressed the expert jury and emerged with awards. The Versaflo M-Series Headgear was awarded the red dot for high design quality, while the Versaflo TR-300 Powered Air Respirator was awarded an honourable mention.
The M-Series Headgear (PDF) range provides a best in class combination of comfort and protection with a design aesthetic that exudes quality and professionalism.  The TR-300 (PDF) is designed to integrate both functionally and visually with the Versaflo Headgear range.  This contoured respirator is extremely low profile given the high air flow that it delivers.  This means that it sits comfortably in the small of the user’s back, minimising the risk of snagging even in confined working environments.
Both these new products represent further enhancements of 3M’s Powered and Supplied Air Respiratory Protection range and both visually embody the key elements of the 3M brand.  As such, they are worthy winners of these prestigious awards.
