WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The ResQmat is an evacuation mat used to help evacuate someone from a building, including going down stairs. Similar to a fire extinguisher, it is stored hanging from a wall or in a cupboard.
Some important features of this product are:
|High vis yellow storage bag, with instructions|
|ResQmat completely encloses the evacuee, and has 4 sets of wide Hook & Loop Tape which can allow for the evacuee’s arms to be either inside or outside.|
|The head pillow is specially designed for impact absorption when going down stairs.|
|Full length mattress|
|Long towing strap at both the head and foot end allow rescuers to pull without bending.|
|The orange strap lifts the foot end around the evacuee’s feet and allows for heights up to 6’4”.|
|The white plastic flute board underneath allows for excellent heat insulation, so the evacuee does not get hurt from the heat generated by sliding.|
