LUKAS leads the way in NFPA Testing Standards
Further to our recent advice regarding the latest NFPA Standards and the introduction of the new "F" Test, we are pleased to share some more great news.
The S 789 (eWXT) and S 799 (e2/eWXT) are the only cutters currently on the market that achieve the result "F5". In this practical comparison, our compact cutter S 378 (eWXT) achieves an excellent result with "F4", and is the lightest in this category, weighing 4kg less than the only other competitor brand to achieve this result.
Vehicle Extrication: The Next Generation - Feature on Spread Rear Seat Backs
The ultimate handbook for rescue recovery contains a wealth of information including this important feature on negotiating split-fold rear seats in rescue situations. Where rear seats can be split (usually to allow larger loads to be carried) this design can be used to our advantage. We can use hydraulic spreaders to spread off the roof line and force the rear seat backs into the boot (trunk) as a method of increasing access space into the rear of the vehicle. Vehicle Extrication - THE NEXT GENERATION provides a full description, datasheet and FULL-LENGTH HD video link to this and many other popular processes and techniques. Contact us today to order your copy of this essential rescue handbook.
Please note that PT Rescue HQ will be closed for the Easter break from Friday 2nd April and returning Tuesday 6th April.
