Portable Fresh Air Bay

The Portable Fresh Air Bay is folded and stored in an explosion resistant steel container.The Portable Fresh Air Bay is a completely powerless, inflatable refuge chamber that deploys rapidly to provide 96 hours of breathable air to miners trapped underground. High pressure compressed air cylinders inflate and fill the Bay with fresh air. Medical grade oxygen cylinders and a CO2 scrubber maintain fresh, breathable air inside the chamber.

Strata Products Fresh Air Bay Skid.

The Portable Fresh Air Bay is folded and stored in an explosion resistant steel container called the Strata Products Fresh Air Bay Skid. The Portable Fresh Air Bay , gas cylinders, CO2 Scrubber and all other supplies are stored as a single unit within the Strata Products Fresh Air Bay Skid, providing ease-of-mobility.

Fully Inflatable

In an emergency, miners locate the Skid and activate air flow using the master control valves. A hinged door on the end of the Skid is opened to expose the folded Fresh Air Bay. Inflation is then initiated by opening a valve located next to the Bay and the unit unfolds as it inflates. Compressed air flows into air-tight structural beams to hold the tent erect out of the Skid and into the main compartment to maintain a positive pressure and fill it with breathable air.

Technical advancements of the Portable Fresh Air Bay include:

Strata Safety Fresh Air Bay Wheel and Hitch Package

Due to the heavy weights of the fully kitted Fresh Air Bay Skids, Strata Safety Products has engineered a robust wheel and hitch package to be added during construction or retrofitted at a later date. These additions will greatly assist in the moving of the units into and around the mines and will significantly reduce wear and tear.

Each Skid is fitted with a double axle and four 21” x 8” x 15” smooth rubber tires. Standard ground clearance is 3”. Custom set up to increase or decrease ground clearance is available.

The removable steel hitch plate may be attached to either end of the Skid by way of welded clevis plates and pins. This facilitates the pulling or pushing of the unit.
