A self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) is a literal lifesaver in low oxygen environments, such as fires, deep tunnels, or underwater. They not only provide breathable air, they also protect users from airborne contaminants such as dust, gases, and chemical vapours.
BIG Safety stocks both SCBAs and the oxygen cylinders needed to make use of them.
Our Safety Equipment
We stock a wide range of products designed to keep your team safe in low oxygen environments. Our products include SCBAs, oxygen cylinders and trolleys meant to store multiple cylinders for extended usage scenarios.
Self Contained Breathing Apparatus
We stock both open circuit and emergency SCBAs. When using an open circuit breathing apparatus, users breathe in air from a high-pressure oxygen tank. When breathing out, the air is released into the atmosphere instead of being recycled. The circuit is "open" because oxygen is constantly being vented to the atmosphere.
On the other hand, emergency SCBAs are meant to allow workers to escape a high-risk situation, activating automatically and providing 15 minutes of breathable air.
In order to provide breathable air, an SCBA needs a source of oxygen. We offer lightweight carbon fibre cylinders for operators to carry on their back, as well as Modulair trolleys which fit multiple cylinders, meant for sustained usage.
