Many modern materials release chemicals in the event of a fire. It is said that these substances, which are contained in fire smoke or fire residues, promote the development of cancer and malignant diseases of the lymphatic system. Hence it is key to decontaminate personal protective equipment as soon as possible after returning from a call. Same applies to the firefighter helmet.
Close cooperation with customers
What makes Bullard products successful in the market? One of the secrets of success of the company, which has become a world-leading manufacturer of PPE over the course of its more than 100-year history, is the intensive exchange with its customers, emphasizes Hans Alfter, Managing Director of Bullard GmbH in Europe: “We traditionally rely on close cooperation in the development of new products.” This applies not only to the actual equipment, but also to the accessories. With the Bullard Care Kit, for example, the company has once again presented a solution that combines the desire for rapid improvement of application hygiene with the demand for high cost-effectiveness.
The kit includes two ratchet covers, a brow pad as well as an ear and neck protection – packed in a practical wash bag and at a reasonable price. Those who order the set can save up to 60% per helmet model compared to the purchase of the individual components. The regular replacement of pads becomes permanently affordable. The set is available for both the H-Series helmets and the Magma model.
“We hope that the Care Kit will gain a permanent place in the everyday life of the fire brigades in the long term and that the days when a smoke-blackened helmet has stood as a status symbol and symbol of successful operations are numbered,” Alfter summarizes.
