Fire is a threat many buildings face. A single spark can kindle a roaring fire. An oven left open can lead to an explosion that can burn down a building. Fires have claimed many lives throughout the years. Elderly people who had problems walking were gravely affected by the smoke they inhaled. Sometimes, the precautions we take are not enough. A new invention aims to increase the chances of escaping a burning building. The 5aver combines a lantern, an alarm and a mask in a multipurpose tool.
The 5aver can be mounted on the wall. In case of a fire, the device is taken down. This action automatically triggers the alarm and the lantern. In this way, the user will have visibility while navigating through the smoke. The audio signal will alert rescue teams that their aid is needed.
The mask can be detached from the device. Placed around the nose and mouth, it will filter smoke, carbon monoxide and other particles that can damage your lungs. The mask of the 5aver uses a pre-filter, a hopcalite filter and a HEPA filter. The device also comes in a portable version for those who wish to take it with them when they need to leave their home.
The name of the 5aver is a play on the word “saver.” It also alludes to the fact that firefighters have a very hard time entering a burning building after the first 5 minutes since the fire started. As a result, the survival rate for those still trapped inside drops by 5 to 7 percent every minute that passes after the first five. The 5aver is designed to help you get out of the building before the first five minutes end.
The 5aver recently won a “Best of the Best” Red Dot product design award. It has a distinctive design that makes it easy to spot and it can be used in any type of building that catches fire. Would you keep such a device in your home for emergency cases?
