Speedings of Sunderland, UK manufacture and supply Kevlar Lined Sharp End Protection Systems to 70% of the UK fire and rescue services. The company has been working closely with the fire services over the last decade to develop safety products that meet the needs of emergency service personnel when working at Road Traffic Collisions or other incidents involving entrapments.
The system utilises Kevlar technology to provide maximum protection for the rescuers and the casualty during an incident. The Kevlar ensures that the risk of an injury being received is minimised to an acceptable level, should anyone come into contact or fall against the cut metal. The outer lining of the products is made of highly visible, orange or yellow material, which conforms to EN 471 (European Standard for Conspicuity) and is coated to provide resistance to body fluids. The products can be washed in a domestic washing machine that ensures that they can be properly cleaned and put back in service in the shortest possible time.
Regular consultation with Fire and Rescue Services, in the UK, Europe, America and Australia has ensured that Speedings remain at the forefront of the design and manufacture of innovative safety systems for use in the Emergency Services and Industry.
