Oxxy-Gen was designed to save lives and prevent smoke related health issues

Most fire related deaths are not caused by burns, but by smoke inhalation (NFPA). Therefore, protection from inhaling toxins and the availability of oxygenated air can be the difference between life and death.

Oxxy-Gen is the world’s first affordable, compact emergency escape kit that isolates the user from the environment while producing breathable oxygenated air.

Providing up to 30 minutes / up to 50 stories of stairs* of protection, Oxxy-Gen significantly increasing the chance for escape or rescue from emergency situations.

Did you know that in addition to producing smoke, fire can incapacitate or kill by reducing oxygen levels, both by consuming oxygen and by replacing it with harmful toxins? – NFPA

Oxxy-Gen Escape Respirator

At the heart of the kit is the Oxxy-Gen Escape Respirator.

Based upon proven technology used in industry and by the military, Oxxy-Gen is the first compact, affordable emergency escape respirator that generates breathable oxygenated air and isolates the user from a hazardous environment providing complete protection from smoke and chemical inhalation.

oxxy-gen respirator

The Oxxy-Gen Escape Respirator works when moisture and CO2 in the users exhaled breath reacts with potassium superoxide, scrubbing the CO2 (carbon dioxide) and releasing O2 (oxygen), allowing the user to safely re-breathe the oxygenated air.

Products such as gas masks and fire hoods only filter specific toxins, and only up to certain levels. What does not get filtered gets in, and what does get filtered can cause clogging, making it difficult to breath. Gas masks and fire hoods do not work in oxygen deprived environments.

Oxxy-Gen is different. It isolates the user from the environment and provides oxygenated air.


The following from the OSHA website

“Q: Will a gas mask protect me if there is not enough oxygen in the air?

A: No. Air-purifying respirators do not provide oxygen. If used in an environment with low oxygen levels, such as in a fire or confined space, you are in danger of asphyxiation.”

Oxxy-Gen Testing

Testing was conducted by Govmark Fire Testing Services to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Oxxy-Gen respirator in an oxygen deprived, smoke filled environment.

Smoke was introduced and oxygen levels were decreased in a test chamber, creating an environment that would have been fatal within 8 minutes. A test subject donned the Oxxy-Gen respirator, entered the chamber and remained for 16 minutes. Upon exit, the test subject exhibited no signs of smoke inhalation or oxygen deprivation.

Did you know that most fire related deaths are not caused burns, but by smoke inhalation? – NFPA

Treadmill testing was conducted on a test subject wearing the Oxxy-Gen respirator to determine safe operational durations at different activity levels. Limits for safe operation were based upon the oxygen and carbon dioxide percentage limits used by NIOSH for testing emergency escape respirators (per CFR Title 42, Part 8, Subset O, Table 1).

Download Duration Test Results

The results of the operational duration tests are the basis for the “up to 30 minutes, up to 50 stories” claims.

30 minutes is based upon duration testing result of stationary test subject to simulate an area of refuge situation.

50 stories is a calculated value based upon distance traveled of 1,382 ft (based upon duration testing time of 15.7 minutes at 1mph**) and a travel distance of 27 feet between each story.
