Case Study / Extended Duration Breathing Apparatus / South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue

Proflight Bags have introduced the first Extra Duration BA (EDBA) Cylinder cover to the UK market. Currently on trial with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, the EDBA unit from Drager provides substantial extra time to the user. Because of the extra exposure time all the materials used are of an enhanced specification compared to the standard units, ensuring the cover matches the rest of the unit’s performance.

Following consultation with SYFRS during the prototype phase of the product development the cover was designed with usability in mind. A two zip system allows easy inspection of the cylinders prior to re-filling and tailored cut outs in the rear allow the harness to be fully removed from the cylinder without removal of the cover, a feature that is particularly important during operation as the user can rapidly change cylinders without removal of the full BA set.

Common features such as full / empty labelling are carried forward from Proflight’s Standard cylinder range so will be familiar to existing users. Covers can be branded with individual force insignia and product details.
