London Fire Brigade [LFB] is the latest brigade to select Wolf ATEX safety torches for its fire fighters.
Launched only 18 months ago, this range, available in Australia from Whyte-Hall , has now been sold to more than half the major UK fire brigades who use primary cell safety hand torches.
Prior to its selection, the Wolf ATEX TR-24+ torch, along with a number of other competitive products, had undergone a rigorous user evaluation at a number of fire stations.
Gary Hopkins from the LFB Research and Development Group said the evaluation report identified the TR-24+ torch as a high quality, user-friendly product, easy to switch and particularly resistant to damage.
"The quality of the beam from this model was judged to have performed the best in a variety of smoke density trials."
The Wolf Safety torch offers significant environmental advantages. The low battery indicator of the torch not only maximises fire fighter safety by indicating how much power is left, but also proves a very practical method of preventing batteries being discarded needlessly.
Use of two Approved LR20 high capacity alkaline cells also provides longer duration with consequent fewer battery replacements.
Instantly recognisable in yellow, the colour traditionally synonymous with safety torches, this range of six ATEX-compliant torch models from Wolf Safety has proved its reliability in hazardous areas.
