Question about smoke and fire hoods.

Q:"The expiration dates on our yacht's smoke hoods are 2010. The units are Evac-u8. When I phoned, your customer service person told me that Evac-u8 were recalled years ago because of problems. Seals were leaking so the Evac-u8 units caused moisture absorption in the chemicals that were to save your life! What units replace them?

Answer: Please choose a smoke hood depending upon your needs. For example, the Safe Escape Fire and Smoke Hood ASE30A, Hard Case give 30 minutes escape time from smoke or fire. The ASE 30 or ASE 60 in hard cases can be mounted on the wall. The Safe Escape Fire Smoke Hood ASE60A Hard Case 60 min give up to 60 minutes escape time.

Question about the Safe Escape Oxygen Generating Self Rescue Respirator, Steel Case

Q: "Currently, we are using self-rescue hoods and oxygen tanks as our emergency preparedness units in case of fire in our underground storage facility. I see that you have a unit that generates its own oxygen. We are concerned about tanks exploding. How does this unit operate? How much time would we have to escape if we need to use it.? Thanks. Tom

Answer: The unit is the Safe Escape Oxygen Generating Self Rescue Respirator, in the steel case. The advantages of the stainless steel encased unit include being compact (4 inches by 5.25 inches by 7.5 inches),easily wall mounted near exits and puncture resistant. The main advantage is that a chemical process generates the oxygen so there are no dangerous, heavy oxygen tanks involved. Weight due to the case is about 5 lbs. does weigh about 5 lbs.

Each closed system unit has an orange hood that fits any sized head. The nose/mouthpiece has been tested, passed and certified by SGS. This oxygen respirator unit is vacuum sealed in a bag: no moisture can enter. Just open, escape and throw it away.  The case is steel: certified and compliant for IMO, International Maritime Organization for use in engine rooms and areas of ships below deck.

The respirator hood is made from PVC that provides protection for up to 100 degrees Celsius (over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit) as well as direct flame and hot falling ash protection.The high temperature rubber neck band seals off the breathing area to keep 100% of any possible toxins from entering the respirator.

Other uses for this self-rescue oxygen generating respirator are private yachts, chemical facilities, oil platforms and refineries, hotels, high rise office buildings, correctional facilities, police, military, fire rescue, first responders, subways, or underground mining industry.
