Omni-Guard / Air safety clothing


Omni-guard is an airbag suit that inflates rapidly when the user is
falling so as to cushion his fall.High-altitude job employees gamble with their lives during work.When an employee working at the edge of the scaffolding slips and falls, the accelerometer in the suit will detect that he is falling with an acceleration that is equal to gravitational acceleration and thus, release the compressed CO2 in the canisters.It will be inflated in less than 1s.
Omni-Guard is designed to protect the user's neck, torso, pelvis and limbs.The airbags are made of polyurethane-coated nylon fabric so that they are tear-resistant, light and durable.
