HEAD6 Inspector Set

HEAD6 INSPECTOR SET is a short duration, chemical oxygen breathing device. Which is intended for single inspection/light work use in irrespirable atmospheres.

The revolutionary design of the HEAD products provide a safe and constant supply of oxygen so that the wearer can breathe in a contaminated or potentially dangerous atmosphere whilst not carrying a bulky compressed air tank.

Features & benefits:

  • Automatic start – instant O2 supply
  • Maintenance free for 12 years – 36% more cost effective than our competitors
  • Ideal for confined spaces – no cylinder
  • Lightweight (1.6kg) & easy to operate – only half day training required for your teams
  • Unique latex neck seal and oronasal mask design – no face mask fit test required
  • Panoramic visor allowing optimum vision from hood
  • Audio & visual safety alarm indicating low oxygen level to user
  • Range of cases available
  • Option to hire or buy

Storage system allows the unit to be stored, with no maintenance costs, for an initial 6 years, and then following a satisfactory validation test at this point and at 9 years the set will be in use for 12 years.  If the set is used it can be returned to Semmco for reworking.

The apparatus has been designed and tested in accordance with EN 13794, DIN 58639 and DIN 58652-1 where applicable, to demonstrate compliance with the essential safety requirements with EC Directive 89/686/EEC.

Instant Oxygen Supply

HEAD6 is automatically activated when removed from its packaging and a starter candle boosts the initial oxygen supply by delivering oxygen into the breathing bag.

High Levels of Protection:

The HEAD Escape Sets provide very high levels of protection due to the latex neck seal and moulded oronasal mask which provides an excellent face seal.

Visual and Audible Alarm:

These alarms provide the wearer with a three-stage audible and visual alarm sequence.

Stage 1: initiated on start up.

Stage 2: initiated after 66% of the effective duration.

Stage 3: initiated when the effective duration of the set has been reached.


The HEAD6 Sets are light and comfortable to wear and the generator cells are mounted on the hood meaning the wearer has nothing to carry during light work. HEAD Sets weigh from 1.6kg

Storage Integrity Indicator

HEAD6 is sealed in a container that incorporates an indicator providing constant visual awareness of the unit’s integrity and condition. The system allows the unit to be stored for up to 12 years, with no maintenance costs, except for an inspection at 6 and 9 years.

Storage and Carrying Systems

HEAD6 can be stored in a wall-mounted box or can be carried in a bandolier carry case that is discarded when HEAD6 is donned.
