Emergency Breathing Systems
Hansen Protection has two Emergency Breathing Systems. One manual and one automatic. Both systems can be supplied with Hansen Protection´s range of SeaAir survival suits. The company´s
manual Emergency Breathing System is classified as a “rebreather”. It is connected to an integrated
inflatable lung and one breathes through a mouthpiece and “reuses” one’s own air. Hansen

Suitable for use in extreme cold, being able to start breathing whilst still under water, a unique nose clip
and other features make this one of the best automatic solutions on the market.
(Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon)
Our HPL EPIRB is specifically designed for helicopter transport passengers wearing our emergency
immersion suits. The device is integrated in the suits to facilitate quick and easy localization. The
emergency distress location signal is activated automatically when the wearer ends up in the sea.
