Essex Industries (Booth No. N4930) is promoting two new emergency breathing devices here at NBAA.
The Self-Contained Unit (SCU) is an emergency-breathing hood that protects for up to 60 minutes against smoke, carbon dioxide, lack of oxygen or decompression. The hood dons in less than 15 seconds and provides 360-degree visibility and allows the wearer to hear, talk, and move freely. It has a 10-plus-year shelf life.
