In Beit El they learned engineering to develop the filtration system, and released the initial versions in 1980. No official standards then existed in Israel for civilian protection from non-conventional warfare, only for military facilities.
Beit El Industries became a great success when the Israeli government enacted rules in 1995 requiring all new hospitals, kindergartens and nursing homes to be fitted with air filtering systems. The system is designed to protect people sitting in a shelter from nuclear, biological or chemical attack.
After gas masks, the Beit El’s system has become the most widely used protection device by Israeli civilians. In 1991, during Iraqi missile attacks in the Gulf War, the Christian group ushered Israeli residents into their factory shelters. Their invention will be used again in case of war against Iran.
It’s astonishing and sad that very few Israelis know about those strangers who ensure their survival.
