The Temet LSS – 80 is a novel concept for rapidly deployable collective Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) protection. The LSS – 80 was designed for use at home or at the office and is based on Temet’s proven military shelter technology. Temet has been a supplier of NBC shelter systems and components to military customers worldwide for over 40 years and is proud to offer its know how to the commercial market via the LSS - 80.

System Description

The LSS-80 is a complete Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Protection System designed for use at home or at the office. The LSS-80 provides a safe protected space for a maximum of 6 persons for an extended period of time.

The LSS-80 Protection System comprises a Protective Tent with overhead rope supports and a Filter- Blower Unit provided with an effective Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Filter. The entry to the Protective Tent is through a zippered lock chamber to prevent the loss of positive pressure in the Protective Tent when using the entryway. The system Filter-Blower Unit LSS-FBU (also see Temet product leaflet no: 1274 6601 009) is powered by an electric motor and equipped with a manual hand crank back-up drive easily operable by one person. Additional features of the Filter-Blower Unit are a Pre-filter for removal of coarse particles from the intake air, and an Emergency Light functional in manual operation. The system components are packed in a special container for rapid deployment. Once the necessary preparations are performed, the LSS-80 Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection System can be made fully operational in less than 15 minutes

The Protective Tent is slightly pressurized with clean, completely toxic free air. The positive pressure inside the tent prevents the diffusion of toxic substances. The air is treated with the Filter-Blower Unit having a nominal air flow capacity of 50 m3/h (29 cfm). The airflow is sufficient to provide a minimum of 25 Pa (0.10 in Wg) positive pressure inside the tent.

The Filter-Blower Unit is based on the acknowledged Temet shelter technology originally developed for the comprehensive Civil Defense shelter program in Finland. The blower and the NBC Filter of the unit are standard components designed according to the Specific Provisions for small K-class shelters issued by the Finnish Ministry of the Interior. The blower and the filter are both type tested and approved by the Ministry and issued official approval code numbers K/420 respectively K/419.
