Who We Are

At MIRA Safety we value one thing above all else:

Uncompromising protection.

This isn’t just a design philosophy, it’s our driving purpose. As one of the industry leading manufacturers of personal protective equipment, we pride ourselves in being one of the few companies to provide the same level of uncompromising quality of gas masks, filters, hazmat suits, and survival equipment for working professionals as we do for the average civilian.

Based out of the beautiful city of Austin, TX, MIRA Safety creates products that are purpose built to shield users from the worst chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear threats (CBRN) in the world. Whether our customers are law enforcement officers, military operators, first responders, agriculture workers, or concerned citizens, we provide exemplary and durable products to all. 

Put in simpler terms: We are in the business of saving lives. And that means everyone from all walks of life deserve the best possible chance at survival.
