Life Mask / survival and emergency kit

Life Mask
Life Mask

Life Mask is designed to save people in a fire by incorporating an inside-filter layer, an aquifer layer and an oxygen layer. The design of this mask differs from conventional ones because it is able to protect the respiratory organs from a fire, thus increasing the probability of escape.
When necessary, the user can tear it down and stick it directly to the face. The cotton filter is designed with a zigzag shape. From a basic size, the mask can be stretched into different sizes to suit different face profiles. When attached to the face, the mask prevents exposure to high temperature and poisonous air.
