Designed to aid escape from hazardous atmospheres, such as fires or asphyxiating fumes that can arise in mines, the SABRE ELSA is the third generation version of the ELSA constant flow escape breathing apparatus.
Providing breathable air, the SABRE ELSA escape breathing apparatus consists of a compressed air cylinder with combined cylinder and pressure reducing valve and supply hose to air hood and stowage bag. The air supply is automatically activated upon opening the stowage bag. The product is available in either 10 or 15 minute durations from Wormald .
The air hood uses a unique cubical design for optimum comfort and visibility. The three-sided flat visor provides good peripheral vision and the shape helps to alleviate restrictions associated with existing hood designs. The air hood can easily be flat packed for stowage bag without creasing the visor. An inner mask prevents visor misting and minimises CO2 dead space.
The SABRE ELSA escape breathing apparatus features a duration whistle to alert the user if air depletes and the CO2 levels within the air hood exceed the performance specification.
The specially designed stowage bag can be made from either a high visibility PVC coated material or an anti-static black polyurethane material. The transparent window allows for inspection of the cylinder contents gauge and activation pin, without opening the bag.
