Hollis Rebreathers have just announced that the PRISM 2 Rebreather has now received CE approval by SGS.
The Utah, USA based manufacturer confirmed on social media that both the front mounted counterlung and back mounted counterlung variants passed all tests in accordance with EN 14143:2013.
A spokesman stated "We are pleased to present the PRISM 2 to our European customers and couldn’t be happier with the performance results."
The PRISM 2 was officially launched in 2012, after Hollis improved on the older PRISM Topaz unit.
The PRISM Name
In the late 1980's a recently retired British Royal Navy sailor - Peter Readey - decided that rebreathers were the way forward, and he started building prototypes. He would eventually name his rebreather the 'Prism'. This acronym is short for 'Peter Readey's Incredible Steam Machine'.
