Why Buy This Kit?
Confined space entry is no joking matter. Many workers have died because they did not use the right equipment. Businesses have also been charged enormous fines because they were not OSHA compliant. At PK Safety, we have made getting all the right confined space items easy by combining the necessities into our confined space entry system. For a more economy minded kit, please see our Contractors Confined Space Kit.

This unit can take a pounding and keep accurately displaying readings for hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2) and the Lower Explosive Levels of a number of combustible gases (%LEL). The one-button user interface for the BW GasAlert Max XT is incredibly simple, and takes very little training. A large LCD screen makes reading gas levels on GasAlert Max XT very easy. Need the screen back-lit to check levels in a dark environment? Just push the one button. See the product page for more details.
The UB20 is the most popular blower we sell and has proven to be extremely reliable. The double-walled housing is molded from a UV-resistant polyethylene; making it dent-resistant, corrosion-proof and virtually indestructible. Add a polypropylene blade, tough nylon motor mount and thru-bolted motor and this unit can handle plenty of abuse. Shipyards, utilities, contractors, rescue teams have put it to the test and have come to the same conclusion ... Nothing compares!
The ExoFit harness is by far the most comfortable harness especially when dangling from a 7 foot or 9 ft tripod. This harness has a back d-ring which is all you need for most confined space jobs.
ExoFit harnesses are made out of high performance materials that incorporate a breathable Dri-Lex lining that draws the moisture away from the workers body keeping them dry and comfortable while wearing. Also with the Lycra edging around the harness you won't have that painful chafing and rubbing from the harness straps.
*A BW Calibration 4-gas canister is also available as an option. The mixture includes: CH4 (2.5%), O2 (18.0%), h5S (25 ppm), CO (100 ppm).
Confined space entry requires a low-profile helmet or hard hat with a chin strap. Our customers have only the best things to say about the VENT from Petzl. It meets all applicable OSHA and ANSI standards, and is extremely comfortable with adjustments for depth as well as circumference.
