Fire-Pak breathing apparatus

October 2012 IS & Ex

The Fire-Pak Breathing Apparatus is the latest offering from Alien Systems & Technologies. This innovative product services a host of applications including high rise buildings, offices, hotels, hospitals, factories, airports, mines, oil drilling platforms and even private homes. The self-contained breathing apparatus is light weight with disposal air canisters. It supplies 3 to 5 minutes of breathable air allowing the user to escape areas affected by fire, heavy smoke or toxic gas.

Paul Wright, CEO of Alien Systems & Technologies, says: “As a company we have always prided ourselves on developing new and innovative technology. In the case of the new breathing apparatus we identified another company with the same ethos and partnered with them to bring to the African market a cost effective and award winning product that can be used in a multitude of applications.

As a premier African fire engineering company, constant development and growth of products has come to be expected by clients of AST. Following the launch of its Astex vehicle fire system earlier this year, the Fire-Pak was the next step into the future of fire protection and suppression technology.”
