The rescue or evacuation SCBA :
The rescue SCBA – or rescue self-contained breathing apparatus – are equipments designed for the emergency situations. They are engineerd to ensure the intake of breathable air to the workers evolving in a suddenly harmful atmosphere. Therefore they allow the safe evacuation from the contamined area.
These units shall never be used to enter an already hazardous atmosphere. The 20.9% of oxygen from the breathable air that they contain is not sufficient enough when the user is doing an effort. Anyone who needs to enter an hazardous area shall be equipped with a classic self-contained breathing apparatus. The rescue SCBAs are designed only for the emergency evacuations.
Selecting its evacuation unit :
Open-circuit self-contained breathing apparatus :
Particularly easy and quick to use the rescue or evacuation SCBAs provide clean breathable air on a determined period to allow people to evacuate safely. The bag opening instantly releases the air from the compressed air cylinder (thanks to a pin system). The user shall just wear the hood and breath normally.
Closed-circuit self-contained breathing apparatus :
In addition to the rescue or evacuation SCBA, we also propose self-rescuer masks with chemical generation of oxygen (go to the “Self-rescuer masks”) wich are sometimes prefered for their compact size, a lighter weight and because they are easier to carry on..
