Scott launches Sigma ACSm.

Byline: Dubai

Scott Health & Safety has announced the launch of the new innovative Sigma Advanced Carrying System (ACSm) for use in marine applications.

The Sigma ACSm is designed to provide unequalled levels of performance and comfort as a Class 1 compliance set for use in marine environments and is approved to prEN137: 2006 Class11, MED (Shipwheel) and AS standards, said a company statement.

The Sigma ACSm combines all the benefits of Sigma a" an established high performance, low cost SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) associated with shipboard firefighting and confined space entry, with the new technology behind the new lightweight ACS (Advanced Carrying System).

Scott Health & Safety's new ACS is significantly lighter than any other carrying system in its class and is the first system in the world to incorporate ThermoFlexTM technology to create a unique sculptured soft back plate that provides the ultimate in comfort, ease of movement and contributes to reducing wearer fatigue, the statement said.

The ergonomically sculptured, soft back plate is designed and moulded to fit the spine and back muscles and was developed following intensive research with osteopaths, fabric and industrial technologists.

The harness has fully adjustable padded shoulder straps and waistband, which is fitted with a quick release buckle. D Rings allow fast and easy connection of other equipment to the webbing or straps.

The ACS harness is manufactured from durable materials, with corrosion resistant nickel-plated components that are user serviceable, low cost and simple to maintain.

At the heart of the ACS set is a simple, high performance and reliable two-stage pneumatic system. A first breath activated positive pressure demand valve provides low breathing resistance and excellent dynamic performance a" particularly at high flow rates.

A first stage pressure reducing valve features only two moving parts and accepts cylinder pressures up to 300 bar without adjustment.

No tools are necessary to remove the pneumatics as this can be achieved by simply rotating the pneumatics 90 degrees to disengage from the mounting.

Combined with the proven technology of Sigma, the new ACSm is set to become the industry standard carrier for SCBA in the marine environments, the statement added.- TradeArabia News Service
