HEAD THAMES WATER 4675 NEW 2021 1920 x 1280px

The HEAD range of escape breathing apparatus protects those working in environments that could become hazardous and life threatening.

The HEAD Escape Breathing Apparatus range comprises three different duration escape sets – 10 minutes, 15 minutes and 30 minutes depending on the application required.

All models enable a simple, effective and safe means of escape or working/rescue and each design includes a unique, in-built personal safety alarm system that is a key feature across the range.

HEAD Escape Breathing Apparatus sets are lightweight, quick and easy to don and as they are head mounted, the wearer is not constrained with a cylinder or bag across their body.  They provide very high levels of protection due to the non-allergenic latex neck seal and moulded oronasal mask to achieve an excellent face seal.  These features negate the need for a face fit test to be done.

The revolutionary design of the HEAD range provides a safe and constant supply of oxygen.  As soon as the escape set is removed from its packaging the oxygen supply is automatically activated by a chlorate starter candle that boosts the initial oxygen supply directly into the breathing bag. As the wearer exhales, their breathe is passed through canisters, positioned either side of the head, that contain potassium superoxide (KO2).  This absorbs the wearer’s CO2 and liberates oxygen that is then delivered to the wearer.  The more the wearer breathes, the more oxygen is generated.

The HEAD Escape Breathing Apparatus is sealed in a container that incorporates an indicator providing a constant visual awareness of the unit’s integrity and condition.  This system allows the unit to be stored for up to 12 years with no maintenance except for an inspection at 6 and 9 years.
