Survitec has pioneered submarine escape technology, introducing full garment protection as alternatives to Davis Equipment and the Steinke Hood as far back as 1952. Innovative, design-based and fully validated improvements saw the introductions of SEIE Mk 10 in 1990 - the world's first patented integrated Submarine Escape Suit and Liferaft combination.
The ErgoEscape™ (SESSPE) continues this unrivalled tradition of innovation. ErgoEscape™ is a fully body garment designed for pressurised tower escape with a fully integrated single-seat liferaft. It is the only garment to exceed the known safe depth of escape of 180 metres, having been fully instrument-tested by QinetiQ to 310 metres.
The ErgoEscape™ is able to provide complete peace of mind and security, using 30% less air than earlier designs. The only fully integrated system on the market today, proven to reduce the likelihood of end-user CO₂ saturation typically found in more segmented products. Our companies' ongoing participation in the HABETaS® partnership and in the Integrated Submarine Escape Capability project makes Survitec Group uniquely capable as a manufacturer of hood inflation systems to ensure design and functionality optimisation. The results are future cost-efficiencies at zero cost to clients.
