The technology used in the development of this set is inherited from Draeger’s advanced PSS® range of breathing apparatus, designed for professional fire fighters. The buckles used are designed to be easily located, even when wearing gloves, for quick adjustment, but follow the contours of the set to reduce the risk of snagging. The harness has been constructed using an anti-static material inert to chemicals and oil, and impervious to most acids and alkalis.
Benefiting from a high resistance to abrasion and heat, this new harness meets the requirements of EN137 heat and flame resistance and is fully machine washable. This material was chosen because of its flexibility and ability to retain its form and shape, in a wide range of temperatures. Its durability, ease of cleaning, resilience and strength means it is ideal for use in extreme conditions. Depending on the requirements of the operation, this unit has been fully approved for use in applications requiring either; short duration entry units, airline emergency escape breathing apparatus, or dual function.
Short Duration Entry Units (EN137)
