SEI Certifies First Escape Hood to ANSI/ISEA 110-2003 Standard

The first Safety Equipment Institute certification for a respiratory protective smoke hood escape device to the ANSI/ISEA 110-2003 standard, American National Standard for Air-Purifying Respiratory Protective Smoke Escape Devices, has been issued to the iEvac™ Fire Escape, Model Number EBP-180, which is manufactured by Elmridge Protective Products (www.elmridgeprotection.com) of Boynton Beach, Fla.

The standard sets minimum requirements for the design, performance, testing, and certification of air-purifying respiratory protective smoke devices for immediate emergency evacuation without entry/reentry of adult civilians. Devices are certified to provide limited protection for adults from the byproducts of fire, including particulate matter, carbon monoxide, other toxic gases, and radiant heat.

SEI said performance testing includes requirements for carbon dioxide inhalation, donning time, resistance to breathing, filtration of particulates, inward leakage testing, light transmission, field of vision, water leakage, gas breakthrough, inhalation air temperature, breathing resistance to soot particulates, heat and flame resistance, resistance to molten polymeric drips, resistance to radiant heat, and corrosion resistance. Independent testing for the SEI certification program for these devices is coordinated by SEI's contract testing laboratory, Intertek Testing Services of Cortland, N.Y. Products carrying the SEI label are required to be recertified annually.
