The SAB mask was a Pirelli license mask used both by the army and by civilians.

Mask overview Edit

The SAB P43 was composed of a flat-moulded faceblank made of beige rubber, smooth on the inside and textured on the outside. To said faceblank, the following were attached:

  • A threaded inlet at the chin with an inlet valve
  • Two crimped eyepieces, 66mm wide, made of triplex glass
  • Two exhale valves with identical housings, one for each cheek
  • A 5-straps head harness, four of which were elastic
  • A Tissot system made of black rubber, connecting the inlet to the eyepieces

The kit the mask was issued with depended on the use. Industrial ones used came with a kit similar to an industrial Pirelli P43. Some SAB masks are found with telephonic gear, but it's not known if it is historically accurate.
