Hansen Protection's New SeaAir EBS

Hansen Protection sets a new standard for Emergency Breathing Systems with the introduction of SeaAir EBS. Its capability to withstand freezing temperatures, a design that enables breathing to start under water and its unique nose clip are all factors that have resulted in CAA-UK approval for use in helicopter transport to and from oil rigs.

Sea Air EBSThe SeaAir EBS Emergency Breathing System has been a success since it was launched. SeaAir EBS goes well with the SeaAir Helicopter Passenger Suit. Together they are a unique solution where innovative technology has been deployed.

APPROVED BY BRITISH AIR TRANSPORT AUTHORITIES

Hansen Protection has released a fully CAA-UK approved life jacket with Cat A EBS. The life jacket complies with CAP 1034 requirements for helicopter crews and passengers. On January 1st, 2015, the British Air Transport Authorities imposed more stringent requirements for Emergency Breathing Systems (EBS). According to the new British requirements, the breathing system should function under water. SeaAir EBS meets these requirements.

SUCCESSFUL INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

This Norwegian company Hansen Protection made their first survival suits as far back as 1976 in connection with the start-up of oil activities in the North Sea. When looking to create a functional emergency breathing system for helicopter crew and passengers they contacted the Swedish diving equipment company Poseidon. Poseidon is a world leader in cold water regulators, and has been part of the successful industrial cooperation which has resulted in Hansen Protection’s SeaAir EBS.

COMPLETE SOLUTION

SeaAir EBS is the market’s most complete EBS. The System incorporates a solution that makes enables the user to start breathing under water, a nose clip suitable to any nose, a design that channels vomit out of the way and ergonomics that ensures it is no longer necessary to bite the mouth piece to keep it in place. 
"This is a total concept which we have worked long and hard to solve. We are proud to be the first in the world to make such a good solution as SeaAir EBS available," says Knut Aasle.

SeaAir EBS is mainly used in connection with Offshore Helicopter Transport, and can currently be found in many countries. 

SeaAir EBS is integrated in the SeaLion Europe Life Jacket and SeaAir Survival Suit. Both of these are EASA and ETSO approved. In addition, SeaAir EBS is compatible with Hansen Protection’s SeaAir Helicopter Passenger Suits, already widely used on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
