The unique Split-Apart function allows for a completely solid connection between the two parts of the stretcher, without the use of pins or tubes sliding into each other. The LocSafe feature allows for quick and easy visual check to ensure connections are secure throughout an operation. A small button stops split apart connection from being disengaged during the rescue process. This system of connection allows the stretcher to be assembled or un-assembled in about 15 seconds.
The Titan-Ti Split Tapered Basket Stretcher is designed to meet a Traverse-Standard of 1,134 kg (2500 lbs.) while suspended from a four-point litter bridle. All testing has been completed at an independent facility, and are proven to surpass this specification.
The Titan-Ti Split Tapered Basket Stretcher is specifically designed to perform in a technical rescue environment. The materials allow it to survive in almost all conditions, while the design itself allows for a user-friendly platform from which to work. The titanium materials allow the additional feature of reducing more than half of the weight when compared to similar stainless steel models.
Unique features include a 25.4mm (1 inch) top-tube to make it easy to hold onto relative to smaller-tube frames. Four StratLoad™ attachment points make it quick, easy and safer to clip your Litter Bridle into. These attachment points protect the carabiner from wall and rock faces etc. The High Density Polyethylene netting allows water and air to easily pass through the patient compartment, yet the small holes keep from snagging debris as easily. The High Density Polyethylene material will not rust and potentially cause additional harm to your patient, and they are attached with shock cord so they will give-way when loads are improperly placed on it.
Every Split-Apart basket includes Collet Protectors. These protectors are meant to be used on each end when the stretcher is no in use. They protect the threads from denting and keep debris out.
