Avalanche Safety Kit / Safety Kit

Avalanche Safety Kit

In the situation of human burial in an avalanche, an safety kit allows access to the fresh air.
The device can be used climbers, skiers and snowboarders.
Design is a telescopic tube, tip–auger with internal holes, handle with non–skid patches for fingers and elastic tube.
The device has a length of about 300 mm, which allows you to put it in your pocket. Through the inner hole at the tip passes inhalation of fresh air and exhalation of used air. Bright color of the tip gives it visibility in the snow, which speeds up finding the victim by rescuers. This safety kit allows you to survive being at a depth of 1500 mm.
