The Xcaper® Smoke and Gas Mask is the newest and most advanced filter of its kind in the world with a simple and convenient design. Using patented moist filter technology, the Xcaper Smoke and Gas Mask delivers unparalleled protection by absorbing hazardous toxins, such as Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Cyanide and 100% of particulate matter common to the smoke in fires. It is designed with an all-natural moisturizing agent that allows for easy breathing. The mask is effective for 30 minutes or longer depending on the conditions.

The same mask used and endorsed by professional firefighters.  
During a fire, smoke can overcome you in seconds...the Xcaper masks will extend that time allowing you to escape!  Harmful gases...Carbon Monoxide, Cyanide and Acrolein are the most harmful gases in smoke. The Xcaper Smoke Mask...can help you escape without ingesting these gases! And it's easy to breathe through!

More than 75% of fire related deaths are caused by smoke inhalation...
and most Americans do not have the proper protection. If a fire were to break out in your home, office or hotel room, you would probably already know the quickest escape route and the nearest exits. However, most of us are not prepared to outrun smoke inhalation. Comes sealed in a bag, so that your sure its always going to be ready when you are. Small enough to conceal in your pocket.

Applications

             

The Xcaper smoke masks and filter are essential in a variety of applications and situations.

             

Wildland Fire Fighting

Xcaper smoke filters were originally developed for use by Wildland Firefighters.  Firefighters in wildlands are unable to use the traditional SCBA.  However, they are exposed to the same dangerous toxins and particulate matter that occur in structural fires.  Xcaper provides protection while being lightweight and easy to use.

 

Structural Overhaul

During structural overhaul firefighters continue to be exposed to dangerous gases and toxins.  Many firefighters choose to not wear their traditional SCBA protection as they consider it too cumbersome in this work environment.  The Xcaper smoke filter is easy to use and lightweight, thus allowing firefighters to work unencumbered and complete their job in a shorter amount of time.

 

Controlled Burns

Like wildland fires, controlled burns result in exposure to carbon monoxide and dangerous particulate matter and gases.  The Xcaper smoke filter provides protection while affording the firefighter mobility to restrict to movement of controlled burns.

 

Arson Investigation

Arson investigators are forced to perform exacting and detailed work in small or confined environments.  The very nature of this work requires that the arson investigator look for the causes of fires immediately after they have been extinguished.  Unfortunately, toxic gases and fumes are still present and are a danger to these professionals.  Xcaper smoke filters provide respiratory protection while the arson investigator performs his work.

 

Law Enforcement

Law enforcement is often faced with the challenge of performing their job in an environment where fire is present..  This is not just limited to saving civilian lives from fire but also directing traffic in areas where severe smoke is present.  Also, some S.W.A.T. teams have used Xcaper smoke filter during bust of Methamphetamine Labs because Xcaper technology protects against the harmful vapors in those environments.

 

Home Safety

70% of fire related deaths in the United States occur in the home.  While responsible parents prepare family emergency plans they often fail to provide the tools to implement the plan.  In addition to smoke detectors and fire extinguisher, every home should have an emergency smoke mask for each member of the household.

Campus Safety

According to Campus Firewatch 20 student lost their lives in on-campus and off-campus fires during the 2006-2007 academic year.  Ask any fire chief with a college or university in their community what their high-risk population is, and the answer is almost universally “students.”  Protect your son or daughter when they are away at school by providing them with an Xcaper Smoke Mask Kit.

High Rise Fires

It often takes a significant amount of time to evacuate a high-rise building during a fire.  Elevators are shut down and as a result building tenants are force to use stairs.  These stairwells are often filled with smoke.  The Xcaper emergency smoke mask provides protection to allow a safe and successful egress from a burning building.

 

Travel Protection

Travelers are often faced with emergency situations in unfamiliar surroundings.  Fires often occur in airlines, cruise ships and hotels.  The Myxcaper emergency smoke mask kit is compact and lightweight. In addition to travelers, owners of private aircraft often outfit their airplanes and jets with Myxcaper emergency smoke mask kits.

How it Works

Smoke Particulate Matter
Toxic Gases
Swirling Smoke carries solids along with gas. Usually these particulates are coated with chemicals created by the fire. As smoke enters the airways, it not only chokes off the air supply; it carries the particulates into the mouth, throat, and lungs. Tissues become irritated, lose their ability to absorb oxygen, and ultimately are destroyed. Suffocation and death follow.

Xcaper Filtration Medium
Specially formulated material inside the pillow-like filter traps particulates before they can reach the mouth and throat. Breathing is free and easy; throat and lung tissues are protected. Much can be survived in a fire if the throat and lungs are protected from particulate matter; even serious burns can be survived, but a small amount of smoke can damage for life - or even kill.

Q:

 

What is the Xcaper Smoke mask?

A:

 

The Xcaper® Smoke Mask is the most advanced filter of its kind with a simple and convenient design. Using patented Whiffs® moist filtration technology, the Xcaper Smoke Mask delivers unparalleled protection by absorbing hazardous toxins, such as Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Cyanide and 100% of particulate matter common to the smoke in fires. The mask utilized an all-natural moisturizing agent that allows for easy breathing and should be used while leaving a smoke-filled area. The mask is effective for a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes or longer depending on the conditions and the type of filter involved.  Thousands of professional firefighters use the Xcaper filter to protect them from harmful gases and particulate when performing their jobs.

 

 

 

Q:

 

How does the Xcaper Smoke Mask work?

A:

 

The Xcaper smoke mask/filter uses a combination of mediums to filter gases, vapors and particulate matter. Specially formulated material inside the pillow-like filter traps particulates and absorbs gases and vapors before they reach the mouth and throat. Breathing is free and easy while wearing the Xcaper smoke mask as throat and lung tissues are protected.  The elements used are negatively charged polystyrene beads and an all natural plant extract. With this combination of elements, the filter captures particulate matter, which carries a positive charge by attracting it to the negatively charged beads. In addition, the stickiness of the gel also traps the particulate matter so it won’t reach your mouth and lungs.

 

 

 

Q:

 

What particulate, vapors & gases does the Xcaper Smoke Mask filter?

A:

 

The Xcaper Smoke Mask will capture smoke, dust, airborne fiber and other particulate matter as miniscule as 3/10ths of a micron (a strand of hair is about 10 microns).  It will also filters water-soluble gases known as anhydrites. Additionally, the Xcaper smoke mask filters other dangerous gases commonly found in the air near a fire such as carbon monoxide, acrolein, hydrogen cyanide, nitrogen dioxide and nitrogen monoxide. The Xcaper smoke mask has also been field tested against petrochemical fumes and it worked well.

 

 

 

Q:

 

When would I need to use the Xcaper Smoke Mask?

A:

 

The Xcaper Smoke Mask is to be used when evacuating from smoke filled areas. If a fire were to break out in your home, office or hotel room, you could be overcome by smoke in seconds. The Xcaper Smoke Mask will allow you to continue breathing in that environment giving you and your loved ones time to escape.

 

 

 

Q:

 

How long will the Xcaper smoke mask work?

A:

 

Unopened, the Xcaper smoke mask will last 5 years depending on which mask you own (see chart, above). The Xcaper Smoke Mask Kit should be stored in a convenient place in case of a fire emergency. Once activated (removed from the vacuum sealed foil bag), the Xcaper smoke make will give you approximately 20 to 30 minutes of breathing time while evacuating from a smoke filled area.

 

 

 

Q:

 

What comes with the Xcaper Smoke Mask Kit?

A:

 

The Xcaper Enterprise Smoke Mask Kit comes with one Xcaper Smoke Mask in its easy to open vacuum sealed bag, one pair of Xcaper goggles, one LED flashlight, one whistle with lanyard; and one dry practice filter, all of which are contained in a convenient Hip Pak that can be attached to your belt or arm.  The MyXcaper Personal Smoke Mask Kit comes with  Xcaper Goggles and is packaged in a slim carry bag that can be easily packed in a purse or briefcase.

     

Q:

When can/should the Xcaper Smoke Mask be used?

A: 

The Xcaper Smoke Mask is most often used for evacuation from a fire in high-rise office buildings, hotels, homes, ships, subway systems, or just about anywhere people gather. It could also be used in the event of large-scale wildland fires where the smoke travels into residential areas and causes breathing problems. For maximum effectiveness, the Xcaper Smoke Mask should be used with Xcaper Goggles.

 

Q:

Is it hard to breathe with the Xcaper Smoke Mask on?

A: 

No. It is very easy and even intuitive to use. A “dry”, non-active training mask is available in the Xcaper Smoke Mask Kit along with an easy to read user’s instruction sheet. As long as the mask covers the nose and mouth, whether “right side up”, “wrong side up”, “backwards”, “forward” etc. the mask will filter effectively. It is packaged in an easy to open pouch that was glow in the dark luminescent strips to aid in opening it in the dark.

 

Q:

Can the Xcaper Smoke Mask be reused?

A: 

No. It is a one-time use product and should be disposed of after use.

 

Q:

Will the Xcaper Smoke Mask system protect me against chemical agents like nerve gas?

A: 

While we believe that our filter would be effective against some chemical agents, it has not been tested against them we don’t want to make any claims that we can not substantiate. Additionally, most chemical agents of this type can be absorbed through the skin so a full body protective system would be required for a proper level of protection.

 

 

Q:

Will the Xcaper Smoke Mask system protect me against biological agents like bacteria and viruses?

A: 

While we believe that our filter would be effective against biological agents, it has not been tested against them we don’t want to make any claims that we can not substantiate. We have had an outside chemical engineer review this issue and the indication is that the filter would be effective. If in a given situation the mask were the only protection available, it would be better to use it than to use nothing at all. We will be conducting additional testing on this issue.

 

 

Q:

Will the Xcaper Smoke Mask system protect me against radiological contaminated particles?

A: 

While we believe that our filter would be effective against radiological contaminated particles, it has not been tested against them we don’t want to make any claims that we can not substantiate. We have had an outside chemical engineer review this issue and the indication is that the filter would be effective. If in a given situation the mask were the only protection available, it would be better to use it than to use nothing at all. We will be conducting additional testing on this issue.

   

Q:

Is it hard to learn how to put the Xcaper Smoke Mask on?

A: 

No. It is very easy and even intuitive to use. A “dry”, non-active training mask is available in the Xcaper Smoke Mask Kit along with an easy to read user’s instruction sheet. As long as the mask covers the nose and mouth, whether “right side up”, “wrong side up”, “backwards”, “forward” etc. the mask will filter effectively.
