Fabric-based RescueProtectionSet protects emergency response

The new RescueProtectionSet for the emergency response market is launched during the Interschutz Exhibition in Leipzig (Germany). This handy set has been specially designed to protect fire fighters and other emergency service workers who have to rescue casualties from vehicles that have been involved in an accident.

The RescueProtectionSet is produced using TenCate RSQshield fabric, which is manufactured by TenCate Outdoor Fabrics. This high-tech protective fabric complies with all the necessary standards, that it is weather resistant, fungicidal, water repellent and dirt resistant. It is also easy to clean. The fluorescent, lime-green high visibility coating ensures that the set is clearly visible. This fabric does not absorb water when it rains.

William Bettonviel and Christian Trimbach, members of the Board of Directors of CT International from Raamsdonksveer (NL) explain: “When you for example cut away the roof of a crashed vehicle, you are usually left with sharp edges and protusions. It is essential to cover these in order to protect both emergency workers and casualties from being injured. After all, an accident is bad enough in itself, without casualties suffering further trauma. Covering both the vehicle and the casualty with protective fabric allows emergency workers to work more efficiently and faster. This lightweight, highly durable TenCate fabric is also resistant to both flames and sparks. And thus enables the process of cutting open the vehicle to progress much more safely. The casualty remains completely protected during the whole operation.” The covers of the RescueProtectionSet can be simply attached to the vehicle by means of strong magnets.

This innovative product from CT International is launched this week at the Interschutz Exhibition in Leipzig, Germany, the world's largest trade fair for incident management, crisis management and disaster relief.
