Technon Breath of Life
The Breath of Life™ provides the wearer 15 to 20 minutes to escape from an attack scene or a burning building with the ability to breathe without inhaling smoke or fumes. Available for personal and commercial use in the U.S. for the first time, the Breath of Life™ mask—pocket-sized weighs less than one and a half ounces and can be carried in a briefcase or pocketbook.
Vacuum-packed and portable, the Breath of Life™ Emergency Escape Mask fits into a pocket or purse, for easy accessibility in an emergency. The Breath of Life™ mask protects eyes, nose, ears, mouth and face by preventing the penetration of unfiltered air—inhaled air enters only via the mask filters. Breathing is easy via the mask’s filters and a precision one-way exhalation valve.
