Eversafe / Gas Rescue Helmet

Discipline: Product

In case of a gas alarm at an oil, gas or chemical plant, workers need to hold their breath immediately and locate an escape hood before being able to leave the site.
The Eversafe Rescue Helmet combines such an escape hood with an ergonomic safety helmet that is easy and intuitive to use while allowing the user to keep on their glasses. By simply pulling the two blue handles, the mask is released from its protective covers and positions itself correctly over mouth and nose in less than two seconds. Communication and peripheral vision is helped by a transparent mouth piece and cheek windows.

What first-aid protection in a quick snap! The blue handle solution that's not obtrusive, yet grabbable enough even with heavy-duty clothing is very intuitive and appropriate. The ever-ready concept without any costly, extra assistance of this design gets all the credit.
