The Hazmat hood  can be used by the public and legally issued by duty holders to escape terrorist CBRN attack, or toxic industrial accident including explosion or smoke.  Carried or issued at work or home, for use on  trains, airports,shopping centres or work, in fact anywhere or time  you may need to move safely, from a toxic atmosphere  to a safe environment.

 

The RadSeeker is a handheld, portable, rugged and highly accurate radioisotope detector and identifier. The RadSeeker was specifically designed to meet the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mission requirements for a next-generation system capable of detecting and identifying nuclear threat materials.


The RadSeeker offers superior identification capabilities that are based on Symetrica’s Discovery Technology. This technology couples advanced spectrum processing and identification algorithms with a choice of highly sensitive 1.5” x 1.5” Lanthanum Bromide (LaBr3) or 2” x 2” Sodium Iodide (NaI) detectors resulting in superior accuracy which is unique and exclusive to Smiths Detection.  This sophisticated detector system is capable of resolving complex masking scenarios and exceeds all ANSI N42.34 (2006) requirements for the identification of bare, shielded and multiple isotopes.


The RadSeeker is easy to use while supplying the operator with quick, simple, specific information for threat assessment.  Applications include Customs inspection, border protection, emergency response, and radiological facilities/personnel monitoring.

OUVRY is a Company, based in Lyon - France, which specialises in the study, research, development and manufacturing of CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological & Nuclear) personal protective equipment (PPE) and related concepts.

OUVRY can offer concepts across the full spectrum of CBRN protection: ranging from impermeable solutions (utilising impermeable or semi-permeable barrier materials and technologies) through to wholly air permeable solutions (utilising textile based activated carbon filtration media and technologies). We are particularly expert in the field of air permeable solutions. These solutions allow air exchange and water vapour transfer, thus allowing sweat evaporation and evacuation. They consequently drastically increase the operational capability of the end users without limitations of impermeable concepts and avoid heat stress problems.

Our engineering team is exceptionally well qualified and highly experienced in the fields of textiles, materials selection, CBRN threat spectrum, chemistry, and physiological factors. We are extremely conversant with the operational needs of our customers and all CBRN PPE Users generally. This deep knowledge based and hands-on background enables us to propose innovative solutions which benefit fully from the results of our extensive ongoing R&D activities. We develop our own protective systems design for military, law enforcement, civil defence and First Responder (fire-fighter, ambulance etc) customers. We guarantee not only the effectiveness of each system component but also whole system effectiveness.

We can provide the best solutions to any request, drawing upon our excellent response capability (high production capacities, industrial risks management, etc) all stemming from our industrial partnerships network and a unique licence for SARATOGA® filtering materials. OUVRY controls the entire supply chain: feasibility, development, manufacturing, quality control, logistic and after-sales service.

One of the most revolutionary products in the Avon Protection Systems range is the CE approved EH20 CBRN Emergency Hood.

AVON FM50

The FM50 is part of the latest generation of Avon CBRN full face mask, specifically designed to meet the latest NATO forces military mask requirements.

It has been developed to counter the multiple CBRN threats encountered in modern war fare, anti-terrorist and peace-keeping operations.

The twin filter conformal system sits close against the face, providing the wearer with high protection and very low breathing resistance.  Twin filters also make it a much more comfortable mask to wear and also allows greater ease of weapon deployment.

Outstanding vision is provided with the introduction of Avon Protection's new wide panoramic flexible visor which is the result of our new bonding technology that incorporates both visual clarity and integral durability.

 

Force1Decon

Force1Decon designs and manufactures products specifically for the Tactical Decon CBRNE response environment. Products are developed by "Operators for Operators" and provide a rapid, effective and versatile tactical decon capability to all types of operational forces globally. The rapid deployment and modularity  of a F1D system not only reduces the overall footprint of the decon process, but also mitigates the risk of rapidly spreading contamination by quickening access time and shortening the decon process time. Additionally, the highly mobile nature of a F1D system allows quick access to areas that might be otherwise inaccessible by larger decon systems and equipment.

Force1Decon has systems that you do not find in other CBRN defence companies - i.e. F1D NPE OpsLite (shown in the photo).

 

STATE-OF-THE-ART PROTECTION

XYTEX 500 is a new shelter fabric developed to inhibit the most resilient bacteria and microorganisms including mold, mildew and fungus. Inside the shelter fabric a microscopic bed of nano size spikes lie in wait to puncture the cell walls of invading microbes, killing them as they come to rest on the shelter’s surface. XYTEX 500’s™ technology is the most effective way to kill bacteria and give DRASH users lasting protection.

FEATURES INCLUDE:

• Independent studies show it significantly impedes the growth of gram- positive gram-negative bacteria, algae, yeast and fungi, and black mold.*

• Fabric’s anti-microbial properties are permanent and do not fade over time.

• Revolutionary technology is EPA registered.

• Anti-microbial properties leave no visible trace on fabric, giving shelter covers the same look and feel as other non-antimicrobial covers.

• Embedded on shelter liner during manufacturing process.

• Permanent for life of fabric.

HOW IT WORKS:

1. Microbes land on shelter’s surface.

2. Microbe’s cell walls are ruptured by antimicrobial spikes that kill it.

3. Surface remains ready for next microbe.

To create a total system solution one should spray protect BioProtect 500® on the contents inside their shelter, which uses the same advanced formula as XYTEX 500™ to defend against microbes. This coating inhibits microbes from growing on the treated surfaces. BioProtect 500® uses a unique, EPA registered technology that remains bound to the substrate and will not leach or deplete as other after-market antimicrobials often do.
