Fire Escape Hood Page 1


The ASE30 Fire Escape Hood is a substitute for the EVAC-U8 Smoke Hood which has been discontinued by its manufacturer, Brookdale International Systems. Testing revealed that the EVAC-U8 was not effective against Carbon Monoxide as claimed, causing the manufacturer to recall all of their smoke protective products. The replacement that Western Safety Products is stocking is the ASE30 Fire Escape Hood, a new smoke hood from CY Holding. This company also makes several related products, including respirators, SCBA units, oxygen generators and mine escape filters.

The fire escape hoods are available in several models, one with a PVC hood and another version with an aluminized hood. These are available in a hard case and soft case.

These Fire Escape Smoke Hoods are available in 30 minute and 60 minute versions. Call Western Safety for more information. These units are now certified CE (European Standard).

ASE30A and ASE60A are hard case units
ASE30 and ASE60 are soft pack units

According to statistics, up to 85% of fire victims don't die from fire or heat, but from poisonous combustion gases and smoke produced by the fire. Before they are burnt, most victims have already perished from smoke inhalation.
The ASE30 Fire Escape Hood can help you and your family escape fires. This smoke hood can protect against Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Cyanide, Hydrogen Sulfide, and other toxic combustion by-products. Presently used in office and residential buildings, hotels, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, government offices and others, the ASE30 Fire Escape Hood can save your life.
Please note that the Purify Air Masks are CE certified, but the ASE Smoke Hoods are NOT CE certified.
