Interschutz 2015

Weber Rescue UK will be attending this year’s Interschutz Exhibition in Hannover. We’ll be on the Weber Rescue System’s stand G04 in Hall 26. While we are there we’ll be providing coverage from the stand through our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/weberrescueuk) & our YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/weberrescueuk). You can find more information about the Weber Rescue Systems stand by visiting this dedicated section to the show: http://www.weber-rescue.com/en/interschutz/index.php . In the meantime you can look back at an interview with our Director, Richard Wood from Interschutz 2010:

In this interview Richard talks us through the “New Blade Technology” which Weber-Hydraulik had brought to the market. The market has certainly evolved since then as this year’s focus will certainly be Battery Rescue Tools. We look forward to welcoming you all to the Weber Rescue stand (G04) from the 8th – 13th June in Hall 26.

The New BC250 Concrete Crusher

The BC 250 concrete crusher is suitable for the toughest applications following natural disasters, such as earthquakes and building collapse, and for applications following industrial accidents. Even the thickest chunks of concrete can be quickly broken to provide rapid access to survivors.
The rotating handle enables optimum positioning of the crusher. Its protective shield protects again dust and fragments, and can also be turned. The tips can be replaced as in almost all WEBER RESCUE cutting equipment.
The concrete crusher can be delivered as a conventional hose-connected version (BC 250) or as a battery-operated version (BC 250 E-FORCE). The battery pack is compatible with all E-FORCE rescue equipment and the Milwaukee battery pack saws.

Our friends at Genesis Rescue Systems (The brand name for Weber Rescue Systems in the USA) recently put the BC250 E-Force through it’s paces. Watch the video above to see some of the results!!

Emergency Services Show 2014

WRUK @ ESS2014

 

Where have these past four weeks gone! It feels like only the other day that we were back at the NEC, Birmingham for this year’s Emergency Services Show. Yet four weeks have managed to slip by mainly organising all the enquiries and demonstrations received from the show. The weather stayed kind to us again this year and on occasions the sun shone right down on us as we unveiled some of the new items as you visited our stand. The main piece being our new 28v 5 amp/hour batteries for our Battery Operated E-Force tools. Producing an improved operating time over the standard 3 amp/hour batteries. Compatible with all current E-Force tools this small yet significant addition to the range will be hugely popular.

Another key addition to the E-Force range is the New Door Opener now available in Tactical Black. With over 10 Tonnes of pushing force most doors are no match for this powerhouse. This also benefits from the fact it is “Grab & Go”, as there is no setup with a manual pump and hoses. It can literally be lifted from the vehicle and with the battery attached switched on and ready to force open doors. This is just one item in the Special Tactics and Specialist Equipment from Weber Rescue UK, with other items such as the E-Force SPS270 Combi Tool and the SPS260H Manual Combi Tool also available in black with more info to follow in the coming months.

We would like to thank all that attended and visited our stand. It was great to see some familiar faces while also meeting some new ones.
