Heed 3 is a well-known HABD unit for helicopter evacuation and evacuation from vehicles or boats in general. HEED stands for Helicopter Emergency Egress Device and the emergency air cylinder is manufactured by American Submersible Systems. Products are CE approved.

Heed 3 is compact, light in weight, safe and easy to use. The product is designed to increase the survivability of military and commercial personnel in short-term emergencies.

This product is also available in a separate version with hose and second stage (with nozzle) , where it can be supplied with two different lengths of the hose itself.

More about the product

Heed 3 is designed in the same way as its sister product Spare Air, which is well known within the diving market and is used as an emergency rescue for divers. The product is robust and made for harsh environments. It also works to breathe from it - even if the bottle with the valve should be upside down.

Over 300,000 units of the Heed 3 have been sold in various versions worldwide since 1979, and it has been used and approved by the US military for the past 25 years.

The valve on the top has a "purge" button, which either cleans or empties the bottle if it is held in long enough. You can breathe straight from the valve without any preparation.

On top of the valve there is also a manometer that gives an accurate indication of how much air is left in the bottle.

The product can be supplied with a holster for use on vests etc. and an adapter for filling (either DIN, yoke or nozzle for compressor).
