FIRE HOUSE TRAINING MANIKINS
The Fire House Manikins demonstrate a good balance between temperature and abrasion resistance. They are predominately designed for BA snatch rescue training in fire houses and for ‘hot fire cell’ training.
The Fire House Manikins will easily withstand temperatures of around 160°C at floor level (400°C at the ceiling!) for a prolonged period of time – they will of course deteriorate if placed too close to naked flames or in excessive temperatures, just as any fire kit would!
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Anatomically correct weight distribution gives the ‘feel’ of an unconscious casualty.
- Strong enough to be buried under concrete or steel lintels – the Nomex overall is not as tough as the Polyester version used in the Duty range but these manikins can still be used for general training exercises.
- The neck provides the ability to fit an immobilisation/extrication collar – to promote proper casualty care.
- Soft body joints eliminate the risk of pinch welts and bruising, a common injury when using plastic bodied manikins.
- The protective overalls and boots greatly extend the life of the manikins and are easily ‘user’ replaceable if damaged.
- A separate hood, also made in Nomex completely covers the head – being separate this makes the fitting of replacement coveralls considerably easier.
