HNE Portable Fire Fighting Equipment

IAS is pleased to announce that it has secured distribution rights to what is simply the best portable fire fighting equipment available. The distribution rights extend across the Company’s national Airport and Defence customer base. In addition, the rights allow IAS unrestricted access and support of any industry sector customers within a 200km radius of the IAS Head Office in Wagga Wagga NSW.

The revolutionary equipment is produced by HNE (Germany) and imported by Pentarch Pty Ltd (Australia). The HNE product fills the current void between a fire fighting appliance (fire truck) and conventional fire extinguishers by affording a fast knock down capability through its ability to maintain a constant pressure throughout its discharge. The equipment has a fire fighting range out to around 16m as against 5m to 7m for conventional extinguishers, meaning fires too hot to get close enough to with a conventional extinguisher can be dealt with by a layman from a safe distance. Another significant benefit of the equipment is that it can be refilled by an operator within minutes, providing a near continuous fire fighting capability.

The equipment can either be mounted on a trolley or vehicle and can be used on class A and B fires. It has achieved the highest Australian Certification Ratings up to 10A and 80B. Potential customers would include those with high cost machinery, facilities and equipment that are integral to a business.
