Firesafe Cannula Valve (100)

Firesafe™ devices can be installed directly in the oxygen delivery circuit and at the interface with the oxygen supply equipment, providing the following benefits:

  • Reduce the rate at which the fire spreads and the potential impact on other residents, patients or healthcare workers
  • Prevent fire reaching the supply source
  • Minimise the size of the fire and the cost of restoration
  • Buy valuable time to evacuate people from the scene

Device Specifications:

Gas Compatibility Oxygen and oxygen enriched air
Maximum Operating Pressure 600 kPa*


*Maximum static pressure delivered by the gas supply source
