1) What is a gas mask and why do I need one?

Gas masks -- more generically known as Respirators -- are the ones to think about after a chemical or biological attack. It has also an important part of industrial safety on a daily basis. They protect workers against everything from flour dust in a grain elevator to the damaging organic chemicals in paint spray.

Any respirator that you are likely to use will have a filter that purifies the air you breathe. How does the filter remove poisonous chemicals and deadly bacteria from the air?

Any air filter can use one (or more) of three different techniques to purify air:

  • Particle filtration
  • Chemical absorption or adsorption
  • Chemical reaction to neutralize a chemical

Gas Masks can protect yourself and your family from probable threats like nuclear, biological or chemical attacks. Gas Masks protect you from the poisonous gases erupting from a chemical or biological explosion. Following the unprecedented 9/11 terrorist attacks and the frequent threats from terrorist groups, elevated status of the terrorist threat level gives us an indication of probable terrorist attacks on the US. We should be prepared for any emergencies with the necessary safety gear to protect yourselves and your loved ones.

Here are some informative articles about gas masks:
  1. Bioterrorism Preparedness
  2. Mustard Gas – A dreadful chemical agent
  3. Gas masks – A preemptive measure for unprecedented attacks
  4. Homeland security equipment – Gas masks

2) Which gas mask is good for me?

It all depends on your application. We have gas masks suitable from infants to adults suiting everyone’s needs. All of our gas mask products are of high quality designed to suit from NBC protection to protection from dust. Read through the Learn More and also read the description mentioned under each gas mask product and choose the one which best fits your need.

3) What is the purpose of surveillance equipment?

Surveillance equipment is a broad spectrum of equipment used from telephone recorders, vehicle tracking devices to audio surveillance equipment, video surveillance equipment and spy equipment. In short the purpose is what you choose and make it work up to your requirements

4) What is a pepper spray?

Pepper spray is just one type of several personal protection products available. Our Pepper spray products contain the ingredient called Olesoresin Capsicum(OC). They come in either 10% or 15% (the highest percentage allowed by law), and have a 2 million Scoville heat rating. OC is a directive of hot Cayenne Peppers. It is pure, non-toxic and nonflammable. OC is not an irritant like tear gas but an inflammatory agent. Contact with mucous membranes (eyes, nose, throat and lungs) causes an immediate dilation of the capillaries of the eyes, resulting in temporary blindness and constricted breathing. It does not interfere with necessary breathing to sustain life. Effects last 30 to 45 minutes. Units can be fired multiple times and have a range of 8 to 20 feet, depending on the model.

5) What is a stun gun or air-taser?

A stun gun is a legal electrical self-defense device that puts out a high voltage and low amperage shock. To put things in perspective, one amp will kill a person. Our stun guns deliver 3 to 4 milliamps. This is far below the amperage that could do any lasting damage to an individual. However, most stun guns on the market are only 1 to 2 milliamps, making them far less effective than our stun guns.

By merely touching a person with the stun gun for a few seconds, he can immobilized for several minutes with no permanent harm. Stun guns are considered reasonable force to resist attack. They can be used many times to ward off attackers before the battery needs recharging, or replacing. The stun gun does not merely rely on pain for results. The stun gun works on the muscular and neural system. When 3-5 seconds of contact is made with the stun gun, an assailant's neuromuscular system is overwhelmed and controlled, causing loss of balance and muscle control, confusion and disorientation. The effect on the heart is insignificant. It takes 5 to 10 minutes for full recovery.

Even if the assailant is touching you, there is no way the current will pass to you. There is no shock-back.

When using the stun gun on an assailant, you will not hear the loud zapping electrical discharge that you do when testing. All the available energy is being discharged into his body. The stun gun cannot be damaged by the continuous firing into an assailant.

Our flagship ADVANCED TASER® product uses proprietary technology to incapacitate dangerous, combative, or high-risk subjects that may be impervious to other less-lethal means.
