TRITONA YEGA allows not only men but also women and even children to easily break windows and escape. It greatly extends the golden hour, especially in situations such as bus or car accidents.
In the event of a vehicle fire, just a few breaths can endanger lives as it leads to suffocation from toxic gases. This is not dependent on the size of the body, whether big or small.
It would be beneficial if YEGA devices were made mandatory in all vehicles. They are compact in size, cost-effective, and highly efficient in maximizing their effectiveness.
TRITONA YEGA encompasses all these advantages, making it an all-around solution.
If mandatory installation is implemented in public buses and gradually extended to all private vehicles, it holds great significance because it can be used on a long-term basis.
Out of ten products available on the market, wouldn't it be true that seven or eight of them are faulty? In reality, they don't even break windows. The situation gets out of control while trying to break them.
TRITONA YEGA is a “remarkably superior product” in these aspects.
“Who actually shakes the powder extinguisher regularly?”
We don’t even know here it is located. As a result, many fire extinguishers fail to function when a fire occurs.
The role of a fire extinguisher in vehicles is not just about extinguishing the fire but also about extending the golden hour and reducing the spread of the fire.
We need to think proactively towards fire extinguishers. If the extinguisher is small and can be easily thrown to buy more time, regardless of age or gender, it can be considered effective enough.
Vehicle fire extinguishers are originally not meant to completely put out the fire, but rather to play a role in buying more time. It's important for relevant policies to consider and gain a comprehensive understanding.
During a vehicle fire, there is a risk of explosion, and opening the burning vehicle's bonnet can potentially escalate the fire due to increased oxygen supply. As a burning vehicle can result in a total loss of property value, unless in exceptional circumstances, it is advisable not to attempt to extinguish the fire but instead evacuate promptly.
It is incredibly important.
Not only do conventional internal combustion engine vehicles pose a risk, but the rapid spread and high temperatures of fires in electric vehicles make them particularly challenging to approach. In many cases, extinguishing fires in vehicles can be more difficult than fires in typical buildings. That's why a throw-type fire extinguisher can be much more effective for vehicle fires compared to conventional fire extinguishers.
A throw-type fire extinguisher plays a crucial role in extending the golden hour to rescue individuals inside the vehicle. Its significance cannot be overstated.
When fire extinguishers and glass breakers are separate, it becomes extremely difficult to locate them in emergency situations. During emergencies, our minds can go blank, and we may struggle to think clearly.
The TRITONA INNER TAP model is highly recommended as it is suitable for installation in vehicles and features a compact design with exceptional functionality. It serves as the optimal solution, combining multiple features in one compact design.
TRITONA INNER TAP is being actively deployed and utilized in various applications, including patrol vehicles of the South Korean police, naval vessels, maritime police ships, and combat vehicles in Ukraine.
DESIGN & PERFORMANCE
I have purchased and tested all the available glass breakers on the market.
I personally visited dozens of cities in Germany, the Netherlands, France, the United States, Japan, Hungary, the Czech Republic, and others to observe their operational conditions and examine relevant regulations.
“Attaching it to the air vent or sun visor, storing it in the vehicle armrest or door compartment, or hanging it on a keychain are all meaningless actions. In the event of a vehicle collision or rollover, most artificially fixed objects inside the car will come loose."
You could get injured, face the risk of fire, or even end up submerged in water. In such situations, with a clear mind, can you search for a window breaker to break the window and escape?
“The window breaker should be readily accessible
at the location of evacuation.”
That is why it is designed to be attached to the vehicle door.
In movies, we often see characters breaking the front windshield of a submerged vehicle using their fists or feet to escape.
However, this is nearly impossible in reality.
Vehicle windshields are equipped with films on the inner side and are adhered to the frame with silicone, making it difficult to tear apart. Even with extraordinary strength, it would take several minutes to remove the windshield. Therefore, the front windshield is not designed for escape purposes.
“The most optimal glass for escape is actually the rear windshield of the vehicle.”
It is the easiest to shatter, making the rear windshield the best option for escape. However, coupé-style vehicles may have narrower rear windshield openings, which could hinder easy escape.
Practically speaking, the side windows of the vehicle are more helpful for escape.
If the movement of the windows is obstructed, attaching the rescue tool to the rear seats or passenger-side window, which is used less frequently, is an alternative. High-end imported vehicles often have side windows that do not roll all the way down.
Therefore if you are installing the rescue tool in only one place, choose the rear windshield.
If you are installing it in two places, consider the rear windshield and the side window of the rear seats.
If safety is your top priority, also attach it to the side window of the front passenger seat.
Vehicle escape requires immediate judgment and action, which is why it is important to have it readily available.
If you strongly dislike attaching anything to the windows, our product, the "TRITONA OCTAGON," combines emergency lighting and window-breaking functionality.
It is designed for portability and meets the NFSC 304 standards for use in emergency situations. Having this product with you can be a good alternative. It can also be useful for rescuing other drivers in need.
“It is necessary for all drivers.”
Incidents of urban flooding due to weather changes continue to occur, not just car accidents.
In particular, for electric vehicles, it is often very difficult to escape from the vehicle in case of a discharge, so I strongly recommend that electric vehicle drivers install it.
Additionally, if you have children or if you are a female driver, I recommend that you install at least one in your vehicle. If your child attends daycare or kindergarten, I suggest you propose it to the school and ensure that it is installed on the school bus as well.
Each product in the TRITONA series is held dear by me, but the TRITONA YEGA product, in particular, gives me the utmost confidence that it will save numerous lives.
I believe that there is a significantly higher frequency of escape situations resulting from car accidents rather than fires. That is why TRITONA YEGA, despite its seemingly simple design, received exceptional attention and effort during its development.
This product has been “designated as an innovative product by the Public Procurement Service” and unlike other evaluations, it was “selected by the National Evaluation Committee based on the evaluation and feedback from the public”.It has received resonance and support from many people.
If a product named after my daughter can save many lives, wouldn’t she be pleased as well?
Its design and performance.
As it is a product that is attached to the interior of vehicles, we have paid special attention to ensuring that it blends well with the vehicle's interior.
The design has received the prestigious top design awards such as the German IF Design Award, known as the "Oscar" of the design industry, and the French Maison & Objet. Additionally, it has the highest level of hardness [HRA +90], allowing it to effectively shatter tempered glass.
In terms of its technicality, we have carefully designed it to be smooth and non-sharp, in order to prevent injuries and damages on the tip even when repeatedly striking the glass. The attached double-sided tape is made of premium materials capable of withstanding high temperatures both inside and outside the vehicle, and we have added a safety pin to prevent accidental activation.
The product has been designed with a structure that allows for precise and powerful operationin emergency situations, without using any springs that could reduce impact effectiveness.
