FAQ

1. PURCHASING AND SET UP

How Does Saver Work?

Saver is an emergency breath system that filters toxic chemical substances such as smoke and carbon dioxide and allows you to breathe clean air. Hopcalite, the core absorbent material filtering carbon monoxide, turns carbon monoxide (CO) into carbon dioxide (CO2), allowing the user to breathe without harm. Saver uses a triple filter that removes smoke and dust, carbon monoxide, and second hand toxic smoke. 

How Many Saver Devices Do I Need In My Home?

We recommend having one Saver device for every person living in your home. If you have 2 people living in your home, we recommend the 2-person set. If you have 4 people living in your home, we recommend the 4-person set. If you have an odd number of people live in your home, we recommend combining a single unit with one of the multi-unit options.

Where Should I Keep My Saver Device?

Saver is small and compact and can be stored anywhere, however we recommend a location close to your bedroom. Remember, in the event of a fire, you want to have easy access to your Saver device. Some ideals locations to store your Saver device include your bedside table, nightstand, dresser, closet, or bathroom. 

Can I Buy Saver For My Office Or Second Home?

Of course! We recommend having Saver available anywhere you call home. Whether it’s your office or vacation home, having Saver readily available provides you with peace of mind. Have a child going off to school or an elderly parent living in a retirement home? Saver allows you to protect your loved ones from the danger associated with fire, even if they live far away. 

Does This Replace My Existing Smoke And Carbon Monoxide Alarms?

No. Saver is not meant to replace your smoke alarms or carbon monoxide detectors. Rather, Saver should be used once your alarm goes off, as a means to prevent smoke inhalation and help navigate your way to a safety.

 2. TECHNICAL

Does Saver Provide Oxygen?

Saver does not provide oxygen to the user, rather it is built with a triple filter system that prevents you from breathing hazardous gases. Saver removes smoke and dust, carbon monoxide, and second hand smoke, allowing you to breathe clean air during a fire and escape safely.

What Is The Core Material Used For The Filter?

Hopcalite, the core absorbent material filtering carbon monoxide, turns carbon monoxide (CO) into carbon dioxide (CO2), allowing the user to breathe without harm. 

How Effective Is The Triple Filter?

Test results show that Saver eliminates 92% of toxic gases for up to 5 minutes. According to the Red Cross, the recommended escape time for a home fire is less than 2 minutes. 

Has Saver Been Tested?

Yes. Saver meets best practices for international standards. The toxicity testing of fire effluents ensures that the device is effective in filtering toxic chemicals in smoke. Our manufacturer is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified, OHSAS 18001 certified, and has received Q-Mark Quality Assurance. These certifications acknowledge that the manufacturer complies with regulatory requirements, follow best practices with regards to health and safety, and comply with quality assurance standards aimed at improving product quality and protecting consumers.

3. USAGE

Is There An Age Requirement For Saver?

Saver is simple to use and was created to protect people of all ages. The mouthpiece is designed to fit different facial shapes and contours. Saver includes a nose plug, however we recommend that children plug their nose with their fingers during the evacuation process. Recommended for ages 6 years and older.  

Can Saver Be Used More Than Once?

Saver is designed for emergency use only and each device may only be used once. If the orange cap is removed, the triple filter is exposed to airborne particles and cannot be used again. Saver is a disposable product that must be replaced if used. 

How Does The Flashlight And Alarm Work?

The flashlight is designed with triple LED lighting in order to penetrate heavy smoke. The built-in alarm notifies others on scene to your location. For the portable option, the flashlight has two buttons located on the top to trigger the light and alarm. For the wall-mounted option, simply remove the flashlight from the wall mount to trigger the light and alarm. Upon delivery, there will be a plastic strip located on the back of the flashlight to prevent the battery from being used. Remember to remove the strip so that the flashlight and alarm are always in a ready position.

4. HEALTH AND SAFETY

How Does Smoke Kill?

Fire can incapacitate or kill by reducing oxygen levels, either by consuming the oxygen, or by displacing it with other deadly gases. Often times smoke incapacitates so quickly, individuals cannot make it to an exit. 

Smoke carries poisons such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and irritants such as formaldehyde and acetic acid. At such high temperatures, unconsciousness and death can occur within minutes. Bedrooms located on upper floors are frequently subjected to these conditions.

What Is The Leading Cause Of Fire Fatalities?

Approximately 80% of all fire-related deaths are attributed to suffocation by toxic gas and smoke, rather than burns from the fire itself. For every minute you are trapped in a fire, your survival rates decrease 7-10%. After the first 5 minutes, your chances of survival are less than 25%. 

How Often Do Home Fires Occur?

In the United States, 1 person dies in a fire every 169 minutes. Each year, approximately 2,600 people die and 12,600 people are injured in home fires. Once a minute, a fire occurs in a building structure. Fire departments respond to over 400,000 residential fires per year. 

What Are The Long Term Implications Of Smoke Inhalation?

Smoke inhalation causes shortness of breath and makes it difficult for a person to breathe. Long-term health effects resulting from smoke inhalation can include cancer, lung disease, and cardiovascular disease.

What Is The Recommended Escape Time For A Home Fire?

According to the Red Cross, the time needed to escape home fires has been reduced to as little as 2 minutes. This is considerably shorter than the 7-minute response-time target for firefighters.
