That same dedication to keeping Astronauts alive and isolated from the extreme environments of space travel can be found in ILC Dover Company’s Escape Hoods.
Tarzana, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
ILC Dover has had a role in making spacesuits for NASA since 1962 and that relationship continues to this day as the company was just awarded a contract to develop NASA’s next generation of spacesuits. The Frederica-based company designed the spacesuits for Project Apollo, the NASA initiative that landed the first men on the moon.
Now, according to the Dover Post article, this space suit manufacturer is the subject of a Warner Brothers movie story of how ILC built the Apollo spacesuit and won the contract that landed their product on the moon.
The announcement encouraged a comment from First Aid Global, a Southern California safety company that sells ILC Dover Company’s CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear) Escape Hoods & Containment Suits. “It's good to see a company who was there at NASA’s inception and is still making space suits today receive the recognition it deserves,” says their product specialist. “That same dedication to keeping Astronauts alive and isolated from the extreme environments of space travel can be found in ILC Dover Company’s Escape Hoods. Thousands have been sold around the world where the threats of terrorism abound, and we’ve been supplying US citizens with this same technology.”
First Aid Global carries the SCape CBRN30 for terrorist threats, the SCape CO/CBRN30 which covers Carbon Monoxide, and the Sentinel XL System, the ultimate protection from Chemical, Biological,
Radiological & Nuclear Hazards. All three systems utilize a clear hood which fills with filtered air with a powerful blower and lithium batteries.
The positive pressure within the hood keeps contaminants out for hours while the multi-contaminant filters remove ammonia, cyanogen chloride, cyclohexane, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide, phosgene, phosphine, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, mustard vapor and liquid, sarin vapor, biological hazard, and radiological particles and nuclear radiation.
“The ILC Dover product is used by the Military and their Contractors, National Security Agencies, the United Nations, Homeland Security and High-Rises,” the spokesman continues. “The American public is just now catching on to the tech.”
