|MSA’s ExtendAire II System|
MSA’s new ExtendAire II is an emergency breathing supply system (EBSS) option that uses intermediate pressure air to provide firefighters with another level of emergency air.
This system, according to the company, allows a firefighter to quickly and easily connect to and breathe from a fellow firefighter’s air cylinder. It is tightly integrated with SCBA to provide unrestricted mobility as well as easy access during critical situations, MSA said. The system uses a quick-connect system with check valves to help ensure that both recipient and donor are not exposed to ambient air.
The ExtendAire II System offers an integrated rescue hose to be used with the PR14 First-Stage Regulator with both male and female quick connect fittings. A waist pouch houses the hose and manifold that integrates with the carrier and harness assembly to avoid snagging and accidental opening.
The ExtendAire II System also connects to the ExtendAire I System for additional connection locations.
