Posted 28 May 2015 · Add Comment

Emirates Airline has chosen US company Essex Industries to outfit its fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft with the Essex PBE, (Protective Breathing Equipment.)

This multimillion-dollar contract was obtained through the Essex distributor, Safari Aviation Services of the UAE. 

The Essex PBE is designed to provide crewmembers with ocular, head and respiratory protection during emergency conditions in an aircraft cabin. A minimum of 15 minutes of protection is provided to the wearer, as aviator’s grade oxygen is released into the unit. Its unique design provides 270° of visibility and eliminates the need for an oral/nasal mask so that crewmembers can communicate while wearing the unit. The PBE holds FAA TSO-C116, TSO-C99 approvals as well as CAA, EASA, CAAC and ANAC approvals. Recognised for its safe design, Essex PBE units are installed in the majority of U.S. airlines and a number of carriers throughout the world.
