The clean solution

Machine cleaning of respiratory protective equipment

Quick, gentle on materials and safe

Rescue workers expose themselves to danger, risking their health to safe lives. Meiko has been helping to provide the best possible protection against carcinogenic combustion residues by delivering high-quality machines for cleaning respiratory protective equipment since 2011.

We work with firefighters to develop solutions for firefighters to use in cleaning and disinfecting equipment, while remaining gentle on the materials. We also plan respiratory protective equipment workshops with a focus on RPE technician safety since they are exposed to carcinogenic residues on the personal protective equipment (PPE) when they clean it.

In July 2022, the International Agency for Research on Cancer – part of the World Health Organization – classified firefighting as a cancer-causing occupation. Firefighters have a significantly higher risk of developing cancer than the general population. Here at MEIKO Protect, we are doing everything we can to look after rescue workers' health – before, during and after a fire. After all, we have a common goal: protecting life.
