Draeger exhibits new fire equipment at International Fire and Rescue Show
Published on 20 April 2010
Draeger's extensive range of personal escape systems, portable gas detection equipment and diagnostic equipment for non-invasive drug and alcohol testing will be on display at the Fire Rescue International 2010.
New firefighting helmets, self-contained breathing apparatus, thermal imaging cameras and chemical protection suits will be unveiled by Draeger at this year's show. As well as innovative new products, visitors to the stand will be able to see Draeger's complete system solution for fire fighters which incorporates the latest in compressed air breathing apparatus, full face masks, head-up-displays, quick-cylinder connection, electronic monitoring, thermal imaging cameras and customised training. The system can be put together as a series of mix-and-match components to meet different operational requirements.
Also on display will be Draeger's extensive range of personal escape systems, portable gas detection equipment and diagnostic equipment for non-invasive drug and alcohol testing. In addition, details of the latest Draeger training courses will be available.
Lightweight, rugged and comfortable to wear, the ergonomic Draeger VFR Pro Helmet is designed for use in firefighting, industrial, marine, offshore and military applications. Available in two versions to suit the needs of high heat environments such as those found in structural firefighting, flash-over training and wildland firefighting, it is also equally suited to rescue and technical assistance operations.
Innovative in design, this stylish helmet is designed for both comfort and performance and is believed to be the lightest helmet to meet EN443: 2008-B. Maintaining clear visibility, even when worn with a gold tinted visor, it offers the highest EN166 and EN14458 optical performance levels with Class 1 for both eye shield and face shield. As a further benefit, the helmets are available in thermoplastic and composite materials. (Composite materials are particularly beneficial in firefighting applications as they are specifically designed to keep their shape and protective properties under high thermal influences, maintaining optimum wearer protection.)
