SAFE-TECH INDUSTRIES INTRODUCES LOW-TECH ELECTRONIC SOLUTION TO COMBAT DROWNING DEATHS WHEN CARS SUBMERGE INTO WATER

Safe-Tech Industries, Inc., an automobile safety concept company, has introduced E-Z Window Escape, a low-tech solution to automatically lower automobile passenger windows should a car become submersed in a large body of water, such as a river, lake, pond, or canal.

The E-Z Window Escape, a newly patented technology, distinguishes itself from existing systems currently on the market in that it utilizes no computerized Central Processing Unit (CPU) to activate the lowering of passenger windows. Activation is based entirely upon the complete submersion of the device into water, which itself independently holds an electrical charge used to lower standard power windows. Fausto Maldonado, E-Z's co-inventor, explains the device's basic principle, "The catalyst that activates the E-Z Window Escape is simple - it's water itself. Water is a natural conductor that completes the circuit and activates the EZW to lower the car's passenger windows." However, merely wetting the device, or the presence of moisture on the device, is not enough to activate it. Maldonado adds that E-Z Window Escape must be entirely submerged for several seconds to allow enough water into the device to complete the circuit.

According to nationwide coroner reports, nearly 2,000 people die yearly from accidents where cars plunge into canals or riverways. Over 30,000 suffer the long-term neurological effects of being submersed underwater while waiting for rescue. Commonly known by most Florida drivers, the immediate moments after a car falls into a body of water are often filled with disorientation and panic. This often prevents most victims from taking logical and proactive steps to escape. While computerized CPU systems do exist, they are tied to the car's electronics and may not be entirely effective should the car's electronics be damaged by the initial collision or impact with the canal or waterway.

The E-Z Window Escape, and its basic components, require no advanced circuitry or integrated computer systems, making mass production dramatically cheaper than current CPU-based devices used for similar purposes. This potential savings in production can be passed along to consumers, making the device a more affordable safety feature for any car on the market. Likewise, the device is not dependent on the internal electronics of the automobile, making it a safety feature that ensures a redundant safety option for all cars on the road. Safe-Tech Industries will not manufacture the device, but instead, license the concept and design to a major manufacturer that would be willing to continue to innovate the device's application and functionality into family passenger cars and SUVs.

"The problem is that unless the federal regulation specifically requires automobile manufacturers to place our device into a vehicle, there is no motivation for the manufacturer to use the system, and this can cost lives," says Edward Maldonado, Safe-Tech Industries president. "We believe that consumers need to know the device is available and Safe-Tech is willing to demonstrate it. This is an open invitation to any and all Florida Fire Departments to test the E-Z Escape and see how it functions when properly installed. We will supply the device and the test cars if necessary. The point is that people need to know there is another low cost solution, other than 'the punch,' for car owners with automatic windows."
