Qantas orders protective breathing equipment

0

September 9, 2015 – Qantas has placed an order with Essex Industries for protective breathing equipment (PBE). The Essex PBE is designed to provide crewmembers with ocular, head and respiratory protection during emergency conditions in an aircraft cabin.

A minimum of 15 minutes of protection is provided to the wearer, as aviator-grade oxygen is released into the unit. The design of the headgear provides 270° of visibility and eliminates the need for an oral/nasal mask so that crewmembers can communicate while wearing the unit. The PBE holds FAA TSO-C116 and TSO-C99 approvals as well as CAA, EASA, CAAC and ANAC approvals.
