FAQ's about Submersible Systems, Inc.
What does Submersible Systems manufacture?
We manufacture the best selling emergency breathing system in the world. The Spare Air is designed for SCUBA divers and comes in normal air and nitrox models. The Spare Air Xtreme is our smallest version of the Spare Air and is packaged with a vest for hands-free operation for extreme sport enthusiasts. The HEED 3 is designed especially for the military and civilian aviation industry as a emergency egress device for short term out-of-air situations, like helicopter or vehicle evacuations after ditching in water. The Spare Air Industrial is directed at manufacturers and factories that need to offer employees air breathing equipment for emergencies and evacuations. Paintball enthusiasts have discovered our aluminum cylinders, and now we offer them for sale on our online store. We have recommended that owners of our breathing devices keep them full and use them to evacuate their home in the event of a fire or smoke emergency. We now offer the Spare Air Escape package that includes a mask for eye protection
