RESCUE CHAMBERS FOR UNDERGROUND ENVIRONMENTS

SHELT'AIR

Our SHELT’AIR rescue shelters are simple and intuitive. They incorporate state-of-the-art technology to monitor and control the shelter.

THE REFUGE CHAMBERS

The hazards frequently encountered in underground environments, such as fires, explosions and the release of smoke and other toxic gases, require a high level of safety planning.

Emergency shelters, also known as survival cabins or emergency chambers, are facilities designed to increase the chances of survival of personnel in the event of an underground disaster. They provide a safe area where personnel can regroup while awaiting extraction.

Based on know-how recognised by the main players operating in underground environments, SUB’ROCA has developed several ranges of emergency and rescue shelters to adapt to all your projects.
