8 & SafeRoom 18 Room Air Purifiers
The Saferoom 8/18 Safe Cell is a portable
NBC positive pressure emergency air filtration system designed
to offer protection
in the event of a nuclear, biological or chemical attack when
installed in a protected room with a maximum volume of 48-m³/1700-ft³.
This system is capable of giving adequate supply of filtered
air up to 8 persons (according to Israeli standards). Plastic
wrap and duct tape cuts off oxygen supply and the Carbon Monoxide
may seriously injure occupants in as little as 2 hours.
The system works by drawing outside air through its bank of
6 filter medias and introducing it into the shelter area creating
a slight overpressure. This overpressure is to keep any unfiltered
air from migrating back into the shelter area through the cracks.
It also relieves the occupants from wearing gas masks and protective
clothing, enabling them a safe, free and comfortable stay.
The system operates from any standard 110-240 volt AC power
source. In the event of a line power failure the unit has a
double redundant emergency back up system. The first back up
the system will automatically revert to the user supplied 12-volt
automotive/deep charge battery, and when the power grid comes
back on line it will automatically re-charge the battery. The
second back up is a manual blower that can be used in case of
a dead battery.
