SCBA: Choosing the best lifesaving equipment for your team

Firstly, an SCBA set is a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus that provides the wearer with breathable air whilst they carry out work in environments that have toxic atmospheres or have low oxygen levels. SCBA sets can be used across a variety of industries including (but not limited to) –

  • Firefighting – Enabling firefighters to enter burning buildings without the risk of inhaling smoke.
  • Rescue – Allows workers to enter confined spaces that may have low oxygen levels or contaminated air.
  • Diving – Divers can comfortably explore under the water surface without the need for regular decompression or having to regularly come back to the surface for air.Fire helmet with SCBA Mask
