Construction site fires are quite common, but it’s the smoke and not the fire that usually proves deadly to workers. In the event of a fire, this fire mask concept simplifies the very process workers would normally use to prevent smoke inhalation.
Just as they would wet a cloth with water and cover their mouth, this convenient, easy-to-use design attaches to the mouth and instantaneously disperses water to a compressed pulp with just a press of a button. The saturated pulp protects the wearer from harmful gases and smoke, buying valuable time to escape or help extinguish the fire.
