Strata Refuge Chamber
In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, explosion, gas leak or roof fall, emergency refuge shelters are there to provide an immediate safe environment for a pre-determined number of occupants. Mobile chambers are designed to be fully autonomous for use in remote locations with backup battery power and back-up breathing air systems. Standard supplies provide life sustaining support for 48 hours, but this duration is fully scalable.
Air conditioners with dehumidifying, insulation, padded seats, food and water are all standard on Strata chambers to ensure occupant health and comfort while they await rescue.
