Simex Awarded $1.7M Contract to Supply Breathing Devices

Apr 11, 2014

Simex was awarded a $1.7 million contract to supply the Canadian Navy with 1800 life support units. These oxygen-generating breathing devices are manufactured by AVOX Systems especially for use on board ships, and have several outstanding features.

The breathing mask is a 15-minute self contained, completely disposable breathing unit, and is light weight with a compact design, making it easy to store and transport. In addition, the mask has a solid-state chemical oxygen generator supply source with no oxygen loss during storage, has at least a 10-year shelf life, and requires minimum maintenance.

The masks are intended for use as emergency escape breathing devices on board Canadian Navy ships, including the Victoria and Halifax class ships.

Simex is proud to be partnering with Avox Systems once more to supply the Canadian Forces with an innovative and reliable product that will help protect and save lives.

AVOX Systems provides respiratory systems and components for both military and commercial aircraft and ships.
