Our History

BreatheSafe’s history started in 2004 with TRACS QLD (specialising in transport refrigeration) and then Kev Dalton Air Conditioning (specialising in heavy vehicle air conditioning & pressurisation systems). Between these two companies, our staff has gained vast experience & knowledge in all these fields.

In September 2015, Nick Johnstone became the sole owner of TRACS Qld. He was determined to make air filtration and pressurisation systems the backbone of our business. TRACS Qld began trading under BreatheSafe.

We released our flagship products, the INPRESS controller and the TL pressuriser, with intelligent auto pressurisation. We have recently installed customised versions of the INPRESS unit on several different types and brands of machines. CATERPILLAR, KOMATSU, TOYOTA, BHP, RIO TINTO, BORAL, to name a few, all with excellent results. 

As well as delivering these new systems, we still design, supply, and install custom air conditioning systems (Toyota Husky Skid steer Range, KOMATSU WA900) and air conditioning system upgrades (Hyundai & Komatsu range).

We are continuing to expand into other areas by co-developing with the valued collaboration of our customers. 

Our fully customised systems deliver performance gains and extended life cycles to suit the often harsh, hot, and dusty conditions encountered in remote parts of Australia.

Our distribution and manufacturing in Brisbane and Perth, and our North American distributor, ISS Mine Safety, connect us worldwide. We bring national and international service to our OEM’s and customers.

We offer technical expertise and full national service backup for our specialised product range.

Due to our dedication to delivering the highest product performance and extended life cycles, we believe we are providing the very best service and value to our customers.

Client Testimonials

Hi, Phil Atley from Komatsu Australia, my role with the company is National Construction Grader Product Manager & National Government Business Manager. In this role I have requested the Breathesafe (formerly Tracs) team to work with me over a long period of time to provide air conditioning solutions for machines working in the most severe of applications, all around Australia & New Zealand. In my experience Nick & the team listen to what you are telling them what is the issue, promptly come back with a suggested solution, we negotiate specification, quoted price is supplied, the work and equipment supplied is cost effective and of a very high standard. We are receiving very positive feedback from our customers & end users about the BreatheSafe equipment fitted. I recommend Nick and the team as mobile air-conditioning engineering solution company.

G’day, Peter Vansittart from Komatsu Australia. I have been involved in the mobile plant/ construction equipment business all my working life and at 62 years old that’s a while. With Komatsu Australia I am a National Product Manager responsible for construction bulldozers and special applications. I find solutions for many customer applications inside and outside main stream. And maintain Komatsu engineering compliance. While I have been working in this field for many years and with different air system suppliers I find that Nick and the team at Breathesafe give great support and dedication. This leads to safe/compliant/efficient/cost effective products that are well backed up leading to satisfied customers. This is the acid test. I have no hesitation in recommending the Breathesafe organisation to assist with your mobile air system solution
