Take a look at some of our latest R&D Projects:
GuardIAN Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics System: GuardIAN is an onboard system that continuously monitors all vital refuge operating systems. During standby mode, GuardIAN checks for component faults and monitors refuge chamber usage or entry to the chamber.
Aura-FX Digital Fixed Gas Monitoring System: Aura-FX has the ability to individually monitor up to 11 gases via a series of user-friendly, digital screens. Audible voice alarms will prompt occupants to replace scrubbing chemicals or adjust oxygen supply levels in the refuge chamber as required.
